Vegan chocolate pie

A divine raw vegan double chocolate cream pie recipe made from avocados, cashews, walnuts, dates and cacao. If you have never had a no-bake chocolate cream pie, you are seriously in for a treat. Not only is this pie quick and easy to make but it’s also packed with nutritious ingredients.

  1. For the Brownie Crust:
  2. 2 cups walnuts
  3. 1 cup dates
  4. 1/4 cup cacao powder
  5. Pinch of sea salt
  6. For the Cream Filling:
  7. 2 cups cashews; soaked
  8. 2 avocados
  9. 1 cup coconut milk*
  10. 1/2 cup cacao powder
  11. 1/2 cup coconut nectar
  12. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  13. 1/4 tsp sea salt

Raw vegan pies are my favorite easy desserts to make for friends and family. Vegan or non vegan, they always come back begging for more, if they can fit it! That’s the beauty of raw food recipes, they are naturally dense because they are made from nuts, and so one little piece of pie can fill you up quickly.
