Chocolate Silk Pie

  By Justina Walls  

November 15, 2015

This creamy pie requires no baking and is super simple to make.

Ingredients

1 pkg. chocolate chips (9-12 oz.) (Read ingredients to ensure you are buying a vegan type – no dairy/whey/etc. Whole Foods 365 dark chocolate chips are good as are Enjoy Life brand. You can also use peanut butter chips to replace all or part of the chocolate)

2 pkgs. (12.3 oz. each) silken tofu (I use Mori Nu - 1 box firm, and 1 box extra firm)

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 prepared graham cracker pie crust (plain or chocolate)

Strawberries, cut in half or other fruit like blueberries (optional)

Vegan whipped topping (optional)

Directions

Open the tofu boxes and gently wrap them with a paper or clean kitchen towel to remove excess moisture.

Place the tofu into a food processor and puree.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips in saucepan over very low heat, stirring frequently, until completely smooth.

Once smooth, drizzle in the maple syrup and stir until well blended. The maple syrup will cause the chocolate to stiffen – that is normal.

Stir until it is shiny and smooth.

With the food processor off, slowly pour the saucepan mixture into the tofu. (It will not really “pour” – more like adding it in small chunks at a time.)

Add some chocolate and blend, then add more chocolate and blend. Do this three or four times until you have added all of the chocolate.

After all the chocolate mixture had been added, blend until the filing is velvety smooth.

Pour into a graham cracker pie crust and chill for at least several hours, or overnight.

To serve, top with vegan whipped topping and fresh sliced strawberries or other fruit, if desired.

Justina's Notes: Adding the maple syrup to the chocolate mixture makes the chocolate mixture very thick and difficult to stir. Continue stirring to smooth it out somewhat. I have tried adding the maple syrup to the tofu mixture in the food processor, so as to avoid this thickening, but do not recommend it, as it is detrimental to the taste of the pie. Remember to blend each stage until it is completely smooth, or the pie will likely have small pieces of unblended ingredients (such as the tofu), and that will be strange!
