The Best Secretly Vegan Chocolate Pie Recipe

The best vegan chocolate pie recipe

Don’t just take my word for it.

Here are a few of the positive reviews on Pinterest and other social media, from readers who have tried the easy vegan recipe.

This tastes like traditional French silk pie. It’s one of our family’s favorite recipes, and we are not even vegan!

The flavor and texture of this secretly healthy chocolate pie is like chocolate fudge.

We call it chocolate pudding pie in our home, but really its texture is more like a rich chocolate mousse.

I have been making this recipe for years, and if I had to choose any one healthy dessert to convince people that vegan desserts can taste amazing, this would be the first recipe I’d choose. No one, seriously no one, ever believes me when I tell them the ingredients. Highly highly recommended.

This chocolate vegan pie is freakin’ delicious!!!

Made my own crust with dates and oatmeal, and I love that it’s high in protein. The vegan chocolate pie was a hit. Even the non vegan devoured it.

Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe

Five easy flavor ideas

Mint Chocolate: Use peppermint chocolate bars, or add a fourth teaspoon of pure peppermint to the food processor extract before blending.

Chocolate Peanut Butter: Include the optional half cup of peanut butter in the recipe below. You may also use almond butter or cashew butter.

Nutella: Instead of peanut butter, add a half cup of Homemade Nutella.

Chocolate Orange: Add the zest of two oranges along with the other ingredients.

Chocolate Pretzel: After blending, stir in a handful of crushed pretzels.

Other chocolate pie flavor options include almond, vanilla, or maple extract, shredded coconut, chopped caramels, dates, pistachios, walnuts, or pecans.

Ingredients for the tofu chocolate pie

Just like with the popular Avocado Smoothie Recipe, no one will ever guess the secret ingredient. Only this time, the secret ingredient is not avocado.

For the tofu: My favorite tofu to use for this recipe is the Mori-Nu shelf stable tofu in firm or extra firm.

The dark chocolate silk pie also works with refrigerated firm tofu or with silken tofu if you prefer a softer vegan pie.

For the sweetener: You can use any all purpose liquid or granulated sweetener, such as regular or brown sugar, pure maple syrup or agave, coconut sugar or date sugar, or erythritol or xylitol for a low carb chocolate pie.

To make a sugar free pie, use store bought or homemade sugar free chocolate chips.

For the chocolate: To make the pie vegan, look for dairy free chocolate chips or chocolate bars, which should be available even at many major grocery stores.

Companies sometimes change formulas, so always consult the package for most up to date ingredients. Here is a list of just a few options you may find:

Try Enjoy Life Foods, Evolved Chocolate, Simple Truth Organic, Target Simply Balanced, Lily’s Sweet Stevia Sweetened, or Kirkland semi sweet (Costco brand). Or look for Guittard extra dark, Scharffen Berger dark chocolate baking chunks, Trader Joe’s semi sweet chips, Sprouts semi sweet, or Pascha.

Tofu Chocolate Pie Recipe

How to make dairy free chocolate pie

Start by carefully melting the chocolate chips. This step can be done either on the stovetop or in the microwave.

If using refrigerated tofu, let it come to room temperature. This trick will ensure the chocolate does not seize when combined with the other ingredients.

Add all of the pie ingredients to a good food processor or high speed blender, and blend until the mixture is completely smooth.

Pour the creamy contents of the food processor into a prepared pie crust. Or you can opt for a crustless chocolate pie.

The chocolate filling also makes a fabulous chocolate mousse if you smooth it into ramekins. Refrigerate the whole pie or ramekins until firm and set.

It tastes like a classic old fashioned chocolate pie and is especially good topped with thick homemade Coconut Whipped Cream.

Vegan Tart Crust

Vegan crust options

If you are using a crust, feel free to go with a packaged or homemade pie crust.

The chocolate pie in the pictures shows the raw crust from this Vegan Chocolate Tart recipe. Other vegan pie crust options include a traditional flour crust, graham cracker crust, Oreo cookie crust, or a keto almond flour crust.

I like an eight or eight and a half inch dish for a deeper pie. A nine inch pie pan is also fine. Or double the recipe to fill a ten inch pan.

If you want to make it crustless, just use firm tofu instead of silken. After chilling in the refrigerator, the recipe should be easy to slice. There is also a soy free option below.

Or for a fancy coconut free Vegan Chocolate Mousse, spoon the filling into ramekins.

    Hi there – to make this soy free it says to follow your brownie cheesecake recipe. Will that also be mousse like or will it be cheesecake? I’d love to make a silk chocolate pie that’s clean and healthy, but I’m allergic to soy and I don’t eat dairy or gluten.

  2. Andrea says

    Hi, This looks great! Can you freeze leftovers? Even if it’s healthy, I want to make sure I don’t binge eat it. 🙂

    • CCK Media Team says

      We haven’t tried, but that sounds like a delicious experiment. Be sure to report back if you try it!

  3. Avra says

    The ingredient list only says to use firm tofu but the blog post says if you want crustless, use firm instead of silken . . . should the ingredient list say silken?

    Also, 12.3 oz seems like it’s the package size of a particular brand. Do you know how much wiggle room there is in that amount? Has anyone written to say they’ve had success with a different package size?

    • CCK Media Team says

      Either works! 12.3oz is MoriNu tofu, but I believe most tofu packages are 14 oz. Many readers have used other brands and not mentioned cutting any off, so I’d suspect it would be fine with 14 oz.

    • Cathy says

      I used 14 oz, and not sure if I mis-measured my combination of chocolate chips and chocolate bar, but I ended up adding just a bit more date syrup for sweetener and about a 1/4 cup more chocolate chips to cover some of the tofu taste. None of those who tried the pie could guess it was made with tofu though! I also topped it with some of Katie’s healthy oreos, made a really impressive presentation.

  4. Barb says

    Hi Katie! This pie looks awesome! I’m wondering if I’m just missing something, but I don’t find the recipe for the crust, using oatmeal and dates, anywhere on your site. Could you please direct me to it? Thank you so much!!

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi sorry for the confusion – it looks like that comment was from a reader on Pinterest who made it with an oatmeal date crust.

    • Cathy says

      I used 1 cup walnuts, around 3/4- 1 cup pitted dates, 1/4 cup cocoa, and a bit of vanilla and salt to essentially turn Katie’s fudge babies recipe into a crust. Just put it all into a food processor and tweak the amount of dates if you want a different consistency

  5. Kari says

    Which sweetener did you use or do you recommend? And is the 2-3 T recommendation for sugar and not for something that’s much sweeter than sugar?

    • CCK Media Team says

      Yes if using something like stevia, you’d use much less. Sugar, agave, maple syrup… honestly anything you wish (maybe not molasses, but anything neutral) will work!

  6. Lucy says

    This pie is AHMAZINGGG!! SO easy, super delicious, & completely fooled my bf into thinking it’s cheat food muahaha!! Thank you!!

  7. Leigh says

    When I made the filling, it was fairly solid, definitely not pourable. I spooned it in but not the texture I imagined. What do I do about this? How do I correct? Perhaps it should have been silken? Or add more soy milk?

    • Laura says

      I just made this and had the same issue. I think it’s that my tofu was fridge cold so the chocolate solidied instantly when I started to blend. Whole mixture too cold. I used katie’s GF almond flour crust and just like pressed it in and was ready to eat instantly. Was still amazing to be fair. So rich and love the texture but would leave tofu at room temp next time or might try with a softer tofu.

  8. Jamie says

    This was really good. I made a pie crust from oatmeal, walnuts, cocoa powder and dates.

    The neighbors raved about how good it was. My mom spit it out and said my crust tasted like dirt. Lol! She’s not a fan of healthy foods. I think she would have liked it if she just ate your filling.

    • Nancy Smith-Weir says

      I made The date walnut chocolate recipe crust. Am I supposed to cook it before I put my chocolate tofu filling inside it? Nancy

  9. Christy says

    I finally made this with an Oreo crumb crust. It turned out very delicious!
    I’m very impressed at the texture and taste. It was a hit in my house!

  10. Katie O. says

    OMG. So delicious! Not too sweet. Super creamy smooth texture. I used a store bought vegan graham pie crust and topped it with coco whip,
    dark chocolate shavings and strawberries. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this pie sooner. My friend just asked me to make it again! Great job! Thank you!

  11. Wendyl Clemens says

    This is outstanding!!

    Made this with my two boys and it was an instant hit.

    Used mostly semi sweet chocolate chips about 1 and 1/4 cups, but we also put in a large Hersheys kiss and a little one !!

    This recipe is a keeper! It’s worth the wait!

  12. Taylor says

    I’ve been searching desperately on the site to try to find the pie crust pictured in these images! Please let me know if you have a link to it somewhere 🙂 it looks like a chocolate no-bake kind of vibe with hemp hearts? Let me know how to make/where to find 🙂

  13. June says

    Hi, Katie, this chocolate pie looks so delicious! I want to make it along with the pie crust on the photo, too… Do you have recipe for that, too? The pie crust on the photos also look sooooo delicious!!! I’m very curious???

  14. Denyse says

    Hello, I want to try this recipe, but I would like the pie crust recipe as well. Can you provide the link to the crust recipe?
    Also, should I use regular firm tofu, or silken dessert tofu for better texture and taste?

  15. Emily says

    This recipe is killer! I put it in a vegan graham cracker cinnamon crust, topped with some dairy free whipped cream & loved it! I will not eat tofu any other way!

  16. Margarete says

    This pie is delicious! It was all gone in a few mins. at Thanksgiving. I did not add any peanut butter. Making another one right now. Next shopping trip I will get Lily’s sugar free choc. chips to try. Thank you.

  17. Kirsten Perez says

    Hi there! You are absolutely right- the taste of this pie is spot on! Sooo good. I did however end up with a tiny bit of grittiness and I’m wondering why. I used a stevia/sugar blend for the sweetener, organic silken tofu, and guittard chips. Has anyone else had grittiness? Any suggestions for preventing it? THANK YOU!

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi! Was the tofu cold when you added it to the blender? This could have caused the chocolate chips to re-harden after being melted. If you let the tofu come to room temperature first, it should solve that issue 🙂

  18. Rozzi says

    5 stars
    Simple and delicious! Took it to a dinner party and the non-vegans loved it. I’ve tried a couple other tofu based mousse recipes but they’ve had a residual tofu flavour, whereas this one was just perfection – rich chocolate mousse. I made my own pie crust with cookie crumbs, nuts and dates. Will definitely make again!

  19. Janice says

    5 stars
    I made this this weekend for a friend’s birthday and we were all blown away at how tasty it was. We couldn’t believe this was made of tofu.

    My friend took the leftovers with him when he left. 😆

    I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for this delicious and healthy recipe!

    Hi Katie!
    Thanks for sharing this recipe! No body belives that is tofu! I made a “White chocolate” version, only substitute the chocolate and cocoa for vanilla whey protein.

  21. Elkay says

    5 stars
    Great recipe, so easy to make, and tastes amazing! Light, creamy, and with a rich flavor almost like there’s whipped cream folded into it. Made a crust with 50-50 toasted unsweetened coconut and crumbled gf vegan chocolate chocolate chip cookies I was wanting to repurpose. Thank you, CCK! I love tofu and am so happy to have this dessert application for it.

    My first time trying tofu and I was blown away at how delicious this pie tasted. You cannot taste the tofu, it just tastes like chocolate pie! I am not vegan either.
