Here’s a recipe that will impress your sweetie pie, or heck– just impress yourself! A no-bake chocolate cookie crust filled with super easy, super rich and delicious chocolate mousse.
The secret is buying the best darn vegan-friendly chocolate you can afford! This is a dessert I pull out every so often for a special occasion or to share with non-vegans who doubt whether a non-dairy dessert can measure up to what they are used to.
Personally, I never truly appreciated chocolate until I enjoyed it without dairy and additives and the other junk it is often processed with.
Chocolate Mousse Pie
Adapted from “The Joy of Vegan Baking” by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
1 cup nondairy semisweet chocolate chips, chunks or bar cut into small chunks
12 oz silken tofu (soft or firm)
½ cup nondairy milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
Vegan cookie pie shell, homemade or store bought
Melt chocolate in double boiler or in microwave until smooth and pourable. Puree tofu, milk, salt and vanilla in food processor until well blended. Stream slightly cooled but pourable chocolate into the tofu mixture and blend immediately until fully incorporated. Transfer to pie shell and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
