Chocolate Coconut Dream Pie By Sage on Mon, 04/06/2020 - 18:07 When I first transitioned to a vegetarian diet, my family was very concerned about my protein intake. My dad in particular would incorporate protein powders, tofu, faux meats, etc. wherever he could; even in desserts. My favorite desserts were his baked chocolate tofu pies! I literally still have dreams about them- they are that good! He would mix up the flavors each week by adding mint or peanut butter and the pies were always topped with a healthy dose of whipped cream. While this recipe is not baked, it reminds me so much of the pies he used to make. I can’t wait to play with this recipe and test out more traditional fruit flavors like lemon meringue and key lime as we get into the summer months! Prep Time: 30 mins Total Time: 3 hrs Level: Easy Ingredients: Graham Cracker Crust: 10 Graham Crackers (full sheets) 4 tbsp Vegan Butter (melted) Filling: 14 oz Silken Tofu 12 oz Vegan Dark Chocolate Chips (melted) 1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (large flake) ⅓ cup Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk 1 tsp Coconut Extract 2-3 tbsp Maple Syrup (optional) Directions: Make Graham Cracker Crust: In a food processor, blend graham crackers and melted butter until the graham crackers are fine crumbs. Press the graham cracker and butter mixture into a 9-10 inch pie plate; starting with the bottom and moving slightly up the sides until it is firmly packed. Using a spoon or measuring cup helps keep the crust smooth and even! Chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Make Filling: In a food processor, blend silken tofu, melted chocolate, coconut shreds, and almond milk until smooth. Taste test! If looking for a sweeter filling, add 2-3 tbsp of maple syrup to the tofu mixture. Pour the tofu mixture into the graham cracker crust. Use a rubber spatula to spread smooth. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before cutting. Optional, but I highly suggest topping your pie with extra coconut and some vegan caramel or whipped cream! Enjoy!
