Imagine the most decadent, rich-tasting chocolate silk pie you’ve ever put in your mouth. Now, imagine that pie was free of any eggs or dairy, and was actually pretty high in protein and didn’t have that much sugar in it.

Well low-and-behold, here she is. This completely vegan chocolate silk pie tastes oh-so gluttonous, and could fool even the most vegan-skeptic dessert lover. Whip it up and amaze your friends and family. Tell them there’s tofu in it (after they rave about it) and look like a magician. Relish in the fact that was insanely easy to make.

Gluten-free? Replace Speculoos cookies with gluten-free Joe-Joes, gluten-free graham crackers, or other gluten free cookies.

Step 1

To make crust, pulse Speculoos cookies in a food processor or blender until crumbs have formed. If you don’t have a food processor or blender, place in a plastic bag and smash with a large spoon or rolling pin.

Step 2

Transfer crumbs to a bowl and add melted coconut oil and 2 tablespoons sugar. Stir.

Step 3

Press into the bottom of a 9-inch oiled pie plate, covering bottom and sides.
