Vegan Chocolate Pudding Pie

Vegan Chocolate Pudding Pie

Jill Dalton
This is one of my personal favorite Holiday pies. My grandma used to make this pie (non-vegan of course) and it was always the first one to disappear over the pumpkin, custard, and apple pies. Of course, there would also be a big tub of Cool Whip that we would add to the top. This recipe is a healthier vegan version of that same pie and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Chocolate pudding pie came out AMAZING!!!

This pie is fantastically healthy and delicious. You didn’t lie when you said the tofu would go unnoticed! Amazing!

Claudia December 27, 2017 - 2:32 pm

Looks great! How many ounces in the box of tofu?

14.5 oz

New to your show! So happy my husband found your videos. Do you use unsweetened cocoa? Thanks.

This is amazing!!!!

Rachel June 13, 2018 - 2:14 pm

I made this pie last week. My family loved it. This weekend I asked my husband what dessert he would like me to make and he requested this pie again!! So creamy!

Jill Dalton June 13, 2018 - 11:12 pm

Great to hear! It is a family favorite here.

WEndy November 18, 2018 - 6:50 pm

All I have is extra firm tofu. Can I use it and just add more almond milk?

Jill Dalton November 19, 2018 - 8:45 am

You can but the texture still might be a bit grainy, not smooth and creamy.

Stephanie November 26, 2018 - 6:40 pm

This is DELICIOUS! It’s so rich and you’d never guess it’s WFPB and not the “regular” chocolate pie. My whole family asked that I make this again.

Ariealle Christoph November 28, 2018 - 9:24 pm

Hi, we have soy allergies. Is there something I can use to substitute tofu?

Jill Dalton November 29, 2018 - 9:31 am

You could use 2 avocados

Caroline December 28, 2018 - 2:53 am

I love the taste, and really so easy. But it did not firm up. I put it for one hour in the feezer but that did not work also, yes it was (to) cold but not stiffer. Also the crust was to loose. Jill, what could be happening in this case?

Jill Dalton December 28, 2018 - 9:07 am

This pie doesn’t get really firm, it stays pretty creamy and I’m not sure about your crust. Sometimes you have to add a couple more dates( if the dates are a little dry) to get the crust to stick together or a tsp of water or so. =)

Caroline Steenwijk December 28, 2018 - 5:43 pm

Thank you Jill, i will sure try it another time because the taste was great!

When I use almond meal for a crust, I find that it works best if it has been processed in my Vitamix first before I put it into my food processor with the other ingredients. Almond meal is so dry, and the texture is not to my liking unless it’s finely ground. I add quite a bit of water to make it stick together and then some. I think adding a little nut butter can also help. Still experimenting with that.This is not a criticism of your recipe at all, Jill. Just my observations of almond meal.

I make a lot of homemade almond milk, so I am thrilled to have pie crust recipes that use up the dried pulp (I put it in my dehydrator).

The filling for this pie is absolutely amazing. I could hardly believe it when I tasted it after blending! Truth be told I didn’t really scrape my blender that thoroughly so that I’d have some left in there to scoop out and taste. 😉 I also spread some warmed peanut butter in the bottom of the crust and up the sides before pouring in the filling (in a PB cup mood, I guess).

Thanks for another great recipe!!

Id like to know how many ounces or grams of the silken Tofu is used for this recipe? and is it soft or firm?
Cant wait to try it.

Jill Dalton September 3, 2020 - 10:32 am

14 – 15 ounces of silky tofu

Edie September 2, 2020 - 3:57 pm

Divine! Used firm Silken Tofu with 12.5 oz in box. Added 3 tbsp date syrup to compensate. Yum.
Kudos Jill! So simple to prepare

I love this recipe. i am so happy to have an exciting chocolate recipe that replaces my old fat and sugar chocolate cake. I like this even better. Your website is the best resource for plant-based food. Thanks so much Jill.
Why does an advert showing bacon for a keto diet keep showing up on your website?

jeffrey.dalton May 12, 2021 - 1:09 pm

Hi Paul, Happy to hear you are enjoying the show. The ads that appear are just Google Adsense ads that we have no control over. When we hear about a particularly strange ad like bacon on our website we just like to think it is the bacon industry subsidizing the whole food plant based movement. 🙂

Karyn January 9, 2022 - 6:18 pm

We LOVE this pie! My husband can’t stop talking about it!

Mindy Shipon July 31, 2023 - 1:57 pm

🤩😍 This is the dessert I bring to dinner with friends! It’s always a hit and gone by the end of the night.
