Ingredient Notes

  • Oreos - Original Oreos are completely plant-based, but feel free to swap in the chocolate sandwich cookies of your choice to make this yummy pie with chocolate crust.
  • Vegan Block-Style Butter - “Block-style” is the important thing to keep in mind here. Whipped, tub-style butters have different formulations to make them easier to spread, which is not what we need here.
  • Vegan Dark Chocolate - Make sure you’re reaching for a minimum of 70% cocoa solids for the best, chocolatiest results possible. Any lower and you risk your chocolate pie not setting!
  • Vegan Greek-Style Yogurt or Skyr - I use Alpro brand. You can also use soft silken tofu or thick coconut yogurt if you can't find non-dairy Greek-style yogurt. Please do not use regular soy yogurt or brands that are on the "runner" side, they won't have the thickness needed to set the pie.
  • Pure Maple Syrup - This is my liquid sweetener of choice, as it adds a lovely bit of complexity. You may also find success using agave nectar or brown rice syrup, though the flavor will be slightly different if you do.
  • Vanilla Bean Paste - Feel free to use an equal amount of vanilla extract instead.

🥣 How To Make No Bake Chocolate Pie Vegan

This dairy-free chocolate pie comes together in just a few simple steps. Here’s how:

Pin

Step 1: Add the sandwich cookies and sea salt to a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb consistency. Add the vegan butter cubes and blitz again until the mixture sticks together when pressed between your fingers.

Pin

Step 2: Press the mixture into the base and sides of the pie pan, Take your time and use a spatula or flat-bottomed glass to smooth it out and make sure it is even and well-compacted.

Pin

Step 3: Gently melt the chocolate over a double boiler (au bain-marie) and stir until smooth. Add the cubed butter and stir the mixture with a spatula until all of the butter is evenly melted into the chocolate, leaving a glossy chocolate mixture.

Pin

Step 4: Add the non-dairy Greek-style yogurt to a large mixing bowl. Whisk out any lumps with an electric mixer or regular whisk.

Pin

Step 5: Add the melted butter chocolate mixture to the yogurt in 3 increments. Whisk between each one to incorporate it into the yogurt.

Pin

Step 6: Add pure maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt and whisk again until smooth. Lastly, scrape down the sides of the bowl and combine everything with a spatula to make sure it is evenly mixed.

Pin

Step 7: Transfer the creamy chocolate filling into the pie tin. Use an offset spatula to smooth out the top.

Step 8: Refrigerate the pie for 6 hours (or overnight if preferred) until set. You can add a dollop of vegan whipped cream or simply serve it with some more thick Greek-style yogurt.

🍫 Variations

As much as I love this dairy-free pie recipe just the way it is written, there are plenty of ways for you to make it your own. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Gluten-Free Chocolate Cream Pie - You can easily make this vegan chocolate pie gluten-free by swapping in the gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies of your choice.
  • Make it a Mud Pie - Chocoholics, this one’s for you. Add a layer of no-bake brownies and a layer of vegan chocolate ganache underneath the chocolate cream filling for a serious expression of chocolate love. NOTE: You’ll only need about ¼ of the brownies recipe and ¼ of the chocolate ganache for a deep-dish 9” pie.
  • Different Crust Flavors - Have fun experimenting with different sandwich cookie flavors like chocolate peanut butter, chocolate mint, or even golden Oreos for a fun twist on the original. Consider adding a splash (¼ - ½ teaspoon) of corresponding flavor extract to the chocolate cream filling to take the flavor experiment another step further. For a classic crust, try my vegan chocolate pie!

Equipment

Ingredients

Crust

  • 270 g (9.5 oz) original oreos or oreo style cookies, *see note 1
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 85 g (6 tbsp) vegan butter, (block-style)

Filling

  • 300 g (10.6 oz) vegan dark chocolate , minimum 70%
  • 50 g (6 tbsp) vegan butter, (block-style), cubed
  • 500 g (2 cups) vegan Greek-style yogurt or skyr, I use Alpro *see note 2
  • 100 ml (⅓ cup + 2 tbsp) pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste, or vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Topping

  • half batch (half batch) vegan whipped cream, or vegan Greek-style yogurt to serve, optional
  • vegan dark chocolate, for chocolate shavings, optional

Instructions

  • Prepare: Lightly grease the base and sides of a 9" pie pan with some oil or vegan butter. Cut out a circle of parchment the size of the pan and snip it down the sides so that it sits into the pan.
  • Make the crust: Add the cookies and salt to a food processor and blitz for a minute or so until it reaches a fine crumb consistency. Add the butter and blend again until the ingredients stick together to form a soft dough consistency. 
  • Press the mixture into the base and sides of the pan, using a spatula or flat-bottomed glass to smooth it out. Take your time to make sure it is even and well-compacted. Set aside in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
  • Melt the chocolate: Melt the chocolate over a bain-marie (double boiler) and stir until smooth. Add the cubed butter and stir the mixture with a spatula until all of the butter is evenly melted into the chocolate.
  • Whisk: Add the Greek-style yogurt to a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer or regular whisk to whisk out any lumps. Add the melted chocolate mixture in 3 increments, whisking to incorporate it into the yogurt each time.
  • Sweeten and flavor: Add the maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt and whisk again until smooth. Lastly, scrape down the sides of the bowl and combine everything with a spatula to make sure it is evenly mixed.
  • Set: Transfer the filling into the pie tin using a spatula to smooth out the top. Place in the fridge to set for 6 hours (or overnight if preferred).
  • Garnish: Make half a batch of vegan whipped cream (if using) or simply serve with some more vegan Greek-style yogurt on top. Decorate with chocolate shavings.
  • Storage: Place it in an airtight container in the fridge and consume it within 5 days.

Notes

  • To make it gluten-free simply swap the cookies in the crust for vegan, gluten-free cookies of your choice. 
  • You can use soft silken tofu or thick coconut yogurt if you can't get non-dairy Greek-style yogurt. If using tofu, make sure to blend the filling in a high-powered blender or clean food processor until it’s silky smooth.
