0

Serves 8

Pie Crust:

  • 1 9-inch purchased chocolate crumb pie crust
  • 3 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 oz bittersweet chocolate, shaved

Filling:

  • 1 8-ounce container soy cream cheese alternative or firm silken tofu
  • 1 cup + 2 TB creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup unrefined evaporated cane juice (such as Sucanat or Rapadura)
  • 1 cup soymilk creamer or soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

To prepare the pie crust: In a small sauce pan over low heat melt the chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate into the pie crust. With a spatula, spread the chocolate evenly inside the crust. Set aside.

To prepare the filling: Combine the sugar and creamer in a bowl, stir with a spoon to blend allowing the sugar to dissolve for 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, in another bowl place the cream cheese, and peanut butter. Whip at top speed, scraping down the sides until creamy, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

Using the electric mixer whip the creamer and sugar on high until frothy, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle in the xanthan gum and mix for a few seconds more or until dissolved. Pour the cream mixture into the peanut butter mixture and gently stir and fold to blend. Spoon the filling into the prepared pie crust and top with the shaved chocolate. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
