Peanut Butter Pie

Leave a comment

This is another fantastic dessert from The Kind Diet! I couldn’t find chocolate pie crust in my area, so I made my own. I used the recipe from The Kind Diet’s cheesecake crust and used chocolate graham crackers instead of the original flavor kind.

First, you grind the graham crackers in a food processor until they become crumbs. Then you pour melted Earth Balance over the crumbs and stir it together.

Next, you press the crumb mixture into a pie pan and bake it for about 5 minutes. It smells wonderful!

Now for the pie!

First, melt the chocolate chips in a pan and add some hemp milk.

Once that is all melted, pour it into the crust. Don’t forget to save about 1/4 of it for the topping.

Let that chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes. The Kind Diet says to put it in the fridge for an hour, but I’m impatient and I WANT PIE! So freezer it is.

Next, grab your trusty food processor and whiz together the peanut butter, tofu, syrup, and vanilla.

Pour the peanut butter filling over the chocolate filling then put it back in the freezer for another 30 minutes.

Almost done! Finally, you put the reserved chocolate and peanut butter into a sauce pan and stir until they are well combine and warm. Then, pour the mixture over the pie and smooth it over with a spatula. Return to the freezer for 15 long minutes.

Finally, you may enjoy your pie!! This took forever to make, but wowzers it was totally worth it. It was super rich and satisfying. It tasted like a Reese cup pie. I couldn’t believe how delicious this was. Needless to say, the whole family devoured this and I will make this again.
