Soooo Gooood Vegan Choc-Avo Pie

20151224_140554

Who doesn’t like a good chocolate pie? Being a bit of a chocoholic myself, it is hard for me to imagine what it would be like to miss out on delicious, chocolaty desserts due to dietary restrictions. In fact, I had never given it a thought until I had invited some dinner guests who were allergic to dairy products. I was determined to make a dessert that was rich, creamy, and oh-so-decadent without the use of any cream, butter, or dairy milk. I had found the perfect recipe.

I have used this recipe time and time again and every time my guests have never  been able to figure out the main ingredients in this amazing pie. How could something that tastes so sinfully delectable actually be good for you?

Well, be prepared to be blown away! Not only is this chocolate pie healthy and delicious, it is so simple to make. No slaving away for hours in the kitchen to make this baby, hands-on time totals up to be around 15 – 20 max! So go ahead, try this out! You’ll love it! =)

This recipe is an adaptation of the gluten free chocolate avocado banana silk pie by Petite Allergy Treats.
