Dairy-Free Pudding: It's Vegan, Chocolate and Inspiringly Healthy

Once upon a time, I thought cream was a necessary ingredient for rich, smooth pies. Wow, was I wrong! This vegan chocolate cream pie impresses everyone we serve it to, vegans and dairy lovers alike.  

It's easy to make 5-minute chocolate pudding with just 5 ingredients. Add it to our graham cracker/nut crust and you'll get a whopping 15 grams of protein and 62% of your daily calcium recommendation! It's healthy enough for a vegan breakfast!

Every birthday our boys request this pie. It's been their go-to favorite. It's creamy and ready to eat right away, but if you let it refrigerate overnight it magically turns into a Vegan Chocolate Marshmallow Pie. The texture firms and the flavors intensify.

The filling can be used as a stand-alone plant-based chocolate mousse, frozen into creamy ice cream bars, or used as a filling for eclairs. Vegan Chocolate Eclairs--you don't see those every day!

  • 2 boxes of Mori-Nu tofu, one firm and one extra firm
  • 1 cup melted semi-sweet vegan chocolate

Chef's Notes 

You can substitute other brands of tofu, but we have found Mori-Nu produce the most creamy filling. This pudding can be served in a dish with fresh raspberries, strawberries, mango…or as a part of another dessert creation. It pairs perfectly with the crunch of our favorite Nut Pie Crust Recipe.
