The filling for vegan chocolate pie is so ridiculously easy, you won’t believe it! Unlike traditional chocolate pie filling, there is no whisking on the stove, trying to get that pudding just right.

No, for this recipe, all you have to do is melt some chocolate chips, then add them and a few other ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth, and voila! Silky smooth, dairy and egg free, chocolate pie filling.

What kind of pie crust should I use for Vegan Chocolate Pie?

To make this super easy, buy a store bought vegan pie crust. Whole Foods has a good one in their freezer section. Or sometimes you can find a cookie based crust.

If you have a little more energy, make my Easy Vegan Pie Crust. I know pie crust can be a little intimidating, but I’ve made it as easy as possible! Once you do it a few times, it will get easier and easier.

If you are gluten free, use my Gluten Free Vegan Pie Crust.

What is the whip cream topping?

I used SoDelicious Coco Whip for the cream topping, but there are a few others on the market these days. Even Target is carrying vegan whip cream!

You can also make your own Coconut Whip Cream. Or leave it out, the pie will still be luxurious and delicious!

Vegan Chocolate Pie

The filling for this luxurious, silky smooth vegan chocolate pie is made with just 4 ingredients! This pie is a chocolate lover's dream.
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Chilling time: 2 hrs
Total: 2 hrs 30 mins
Servings: 8 servings


For the chocolate pie filling:

For the crust and topping:


  • Prepare the pie crust: If using my recipe for Easy Vegan Pie Crust, prepare as instructed, transfer to a pie pan, poke holes in the bottom several times with a fork, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Remove and let cool while you make the filling.
  • Make the chocolate filling: Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted. It took me 1 1/2 minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes. Then add the melted chocolate chips to a blender along with the silken tofu, almond milk and sugar. Blend until very smooth.
  • Pour the filling on top of the crust. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours. The pie will firm up as it cools.
  • Once the pie has chilled, top with coconut whip cream and chocolate shavings, if desired. You can also serve each slice with a dollop of coconut whip. Serve and enjoy!


  1. I recommend Mori-nu silken tofu, but the water packed tofu will work as well.
  2. May use any other non-dairy milk in place of almond milk.
  3. Make sure to check ingredients on your chocolate chips, as many brands have dairy in them. Check out my friend Marly's Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Guide.
  4. To make this recipe easier, you can buy a pie crust, either a cookie crust or vegan pie crust (Whole Foods has a good one). Or make my Gluten Free Vegan Pie Crust.
  5. I used SoDelicious Coco Whip for this recipe, but it would be great with my Vegan Whipped Cream.

  1. This tastes amazing! For some reason it didn’t stay perfectly firm (even in the fridge) and fell apart a bit, but I’ve only made it one time so maybe I just did something wrong. I still really enjoyed it ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You might be able to use coconut cream instead, but I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure if it will work or not.

  2. I loved this pie. I was a bit skeptical of the silken tofu even though I know thatโ€™s a common substitute for mousse-like things but it was good! Shared with non vegan friends who liked it as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Can you freeze this pie? I made 2 and was hoping to save 1 for later. It was quite yummy and rich.ย 

  4. This recipe is great! I altered the measurements a bit – 1 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup sugar and added 1 tsp vanilla extract.ย 

  5. wow….this really tastes like a real french silk pie! i plan on serving it to my dad who loves french silk and see if he can tell it’s not “normal.” SOOO good and so glad i have this dessert option now moving forward!

    1. Thank you for sharing your feedback! I’m glad you love the pie, and hope that your dad does as well! Happy cooking!
