I should call this Death by Chocolate Pie or Heaven in a Chocolate Pie :). There is chocolate, all smooth and delicious in the filling and chocolate in the crust. I added some cashew cream on top but really you can drizzle some melted chocolate and basically be in chocolate coma for the rest of the day. A very good coma I must say.
The filling is coconut milk and melted dark chocolate. The crust is almonds, oats, cocoa and just a little oil. Add more or less cocoa to the crust to chocolatey preference. You can make the filling with blended up silken tofu and melted chocolate as well. I like mine with coconut milk :). The filling melts in the mouth and the crust adds another punch of chocolate just when you thought the silky chocolate is all gone. Look at the slice below.. that filling and the crust! And this is perfect for Mother’s day too!
That’s it, no more chocolate recipes for a month. I need to do a no-chocolate cleanse to get over this one.
I am bringing this Vegan Chocolate Silk Pie to Ella’s virtual baby shower! If you haven’t stopped my Pure Ella before, do drop by to say hi. Ella’s space is filled with brightness, beauty and joy, happiness, hard work and fun.
Melt in my mouth! I was not going to take this bite photograph, then decided it looked too good to not. Hence, my messy plate also ignore my attempt at pretty cashew cream piping.
This sudden turn of liking dark chocolate is going to be the bane of me this year. Even though I barely eat 1 helping in a day, when I make something, I have weeks when I crave some chocolate every day. And to imagine I would go years without any chocolate before :). mmm. chocolate.
A 5 yr old visitor ate one whole slice which was supposed to be shared with her mom. Let’s just say that we had an invisible trampoline in the house for the next 2 hours ;)
