This recipe for Vegan Peanut Butter Silken Tofu Pie is so delicious and creamy. Nobody will ever believe it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and made using silken tofu! This recipe is also free from refined sugars.
This recipe was originally published on this website back in 2013, but I re-made it to update the photos. Not only is this vegan dessert recipe fairly simple to make, but it’s absolutely decadent and delicious.
I don’t use soy that much in my kitchen anymore (read about the potential dangers of eating soy), but I make an exception for this pie. Silken tofu is absolutely perfect in the filling, and it helps make it light and not too heavy.
The texture of the pie filing is almost identical to that of a regular dairy cream pie, but of course this one is 100% dairy-free. It is also a nice recipe to make in warm weather because it’s no-bake and served chilled.
Now let me show you how to make it!
Gather up your ingredients to make the pie crust.
The first step to making this pie is to make your no-bake crust. It’s so easy, you just have to put almonds, dried coconut, and dates in a food processor so they can blend up.
After you’ve processed the ingredients, the next step is to press them into a tart pan with a removable bottom, or a pie tin. It’s your choice.
You can just use your hands to press the mixture into the edges. It may seem like it’s crumbly, but it will stick together once it’s been refrigerated.
Once you’ve made the pie crust, stick that in the refrigerator to chill while you make the filling. The filling is super easy too! You just have to gather up your silken tofu, more dates, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and almond milk.
The filing then gets blended in a high-speed blender until it’s smooth.
Pour the pie filling into the crust and chill the whole thing until it’s firm.
I also recommend sprinkling some chocolate chips on top since peanut butter and chocolate go so well together.
Note: chocolate chips usually have some sugar in them, so leave them out if you are on a completely no added sugar-diet.
You’ll be surprised how the whole thing firms up once it’s chilled completely.
The last step is to simply slice your peanut butter pie and serve it!
I hope you love this pie as much as I do! The raw crust recipe has great texture, and holds together nicely. If you love peanut butter, then the sweet, peanut buttery filling is also a real treat.
