Dairy-free Chocolate Cream Pie with “Live” Crust – YUM!
I was experimenting tonight with dairy-free desserts for holiday time. I think I found a winner!
With its “live” crust of dates, soaked macadamia nuts and almonds, this dairy-free chocolate pie is actually nutritious as well as delicious. The chocolate filling is made with extra-firm silken tofu and 56% dark cacao dairy-free chocolate.
Here’s the chocolate pie recipe. If you don’t have the time or the equipment to make your own nut crust, you can use a ready-made graham cracker pie crust. (The ready-made crust I suggested is both kosher and vegan.)
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
