This no-bake vegan chocolate pie is rich and mega chocolatey with a silky smooth and velvety texture. Completely satisfies all chocolate cravings!
This vegan chocolate pie is pure decadent deliciousness. It is a rich, dark chocolate delight. It’s so good I’m battling to find words to do it justice.
Basically, if you love chocolate then today is your day. I recommend you make one of these pies immediately. Like…right now!
It’s also extremely easy and quick to throw together. We went with a simple nut and date crust and the filling is a fabulous chocolate ganache with almond butter that is completely divine. The texture is beautifully smooth and the taste is dark chocolate heaven!
The almond butter gives it an extra richness and nutty flavor that matches perfectly with the date and nut crust.
How To Make Vegan Chocolate Pie
The crust is made up of walnuts, dates and cocoa powder.
Just add the walnuts, pitted dates and cocoa powder to the food processor and process until it starts to clump together and forms a sticky dough.
Transfer to a pie dish and press it down firmly, working it up the sides a little bit as well.
The filling is a super rich almond butter chocolate ganache.
Add chopped chocolate to a bowl with some almond butter.
Heat coconut cream to a simmer and then pour it over the chopped chocolate and almond butter so that the chocolate and almond butter is covered. Let it sit for a minute and then whisk it into a smooth chocolate.
Pour this out over the pie crust and smooth down. Place into the fridge to set.
How To Serve Vegan Chocolate Pie
Once the pie has set then decorate with whipped coconut cream and chocolate flakes for a gorgeous looking pie.
I recommend serving each slice with an extra dollop of whipped coconut cream on the plate, because the mildness of the cream cuts the richness of the pie just perfectly.
You can easily get 10 slices out of this pie, but it’s so rich, you might find yourself slicing it even thinner. It’s the best thing for those chocolate cravings!
Does it taste like Coconut?
It tastes like rich chocolate and you can’t really taste the coconut. However, if you really hate coconut then you can substitute the coconut cream for an alternate non dairy cream and decorate it with an alternate vegan whipped cream.
Make it with an Oreo Cookie Crust
A crushed cookie crust or oreo cookie crust would also work great for this. If you’re keen to try that then use the crust instructions from our vegan peanut butter pie.
Chopped Chocolate or Chocolate Chips
I really prefer using a high quality chopped vegan chocolate rather than chocolate chips as it tends to have a smoother richer result. However, chocolate chips can be used in a pinch.
Storing and Freezing
Keep it stored in the fridge and consume within 5-7 days. This is a fridge tart and needs to be kept cold. It starts to get a little too soft if it’s kept too long at room temperature, so fridge is best!
You can freeze it as well if you like, but I would recommend not putting on the whipped cream if you’re going to freeze it. Thaw it in the fridge and then add vegan whipped cream and serve.
