Description
Vegan French Silk Pie

This Vegan French Silk Pie is not only Gluten-Free, but the smoothest, fluffiest, moussiest, silkiest, velvetiest, creamiest, chocolatiest, dreamiest melt-in-your-mouth chocolate pie I’ve had. Probably EVER.This is a chocolate-lovers chocolate dessert.

Ingredients Crust:
  • 1½ cups raw brazil nuts*
  • 8 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp raw agave (or maple syrup)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
Filling:
  • 300gr / 10.5oz regular (or firm) tofu (make sure it’s room temp and not cold)
  • ⅔ cup chopped dairy-free dark chocolate of your choice, melted**
  • ⅓ cup cacao powder
  • ⅓ cup raw agave (or maple syrup***)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • just under ½ tsp salt
  • just under ¼ tsp instant espresso powder (optional****)
Optional Toppings:
  • a few tbsp dairy-free yogurt for swirls*****, cacao nibs, chocolate coated cacao nibs, chocolate covered amaranth balls, edible rose buds and petals. Other topping ideas: coconut whip cream, shaved chocolate.
Instructions
 
  1. Process nuts, dates, and salt in a food processor into a fine crumble. Add agave and cacao powder and process to combine. Transfer into a 7″ tart pan (or pie plate) and press into a crust along base and edges. Place in the freezer while working on the next step.
  2. Blend the tofu into a smooth consistency in a power blender. Add all remaining filling ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour over prepared crust and tap the pan on the counter a few times to smooth the filling out.
  3. Optional: drizzle the yogurt over the cake using a cake decorating pen or pipping bag, create desired swirl pattern, sprinkle with any additional toppings. Freeze cake for 1 hour to set. Afterwards keep it refrigerated until serving. Enjoy!
Notes

*Use toasted pumpkin seeds for a nut-free version.

**Can also use chocolate chips. I recommend using your favorite chocolate bar or something similar for best flavor.

***If substituting with maple syrup, keep in mind it’s usually a bit sweeter than other liquid sweeteners, so you might want to start with a bit less and adjust the flavor to your liking.

****The espresso powder adds an incredible rich chocolate flavor to this pie.

*****A runnier yogurt works best (some dairy-free varieties can be a little dense).
