Pie is a pretty crazy thing.
I mean really, how many varieties of the same thing can we make, people?!?!?
There are sweet pies (like rocky road or pudding pies), nutty (like pecan pies), fruity (like apple or blueberry), all the way down across and over to savory pies, like spinach or meat pies)!!!
What is up with that?!
Well, I think it's crazy.
Like pine trees. How are there so many varieties, and yet all are pine trees!?
(Sorry for the random rabbit trail... had a weird conversation about that, and it's lingering in my mind... :P )
Anyways, here is another pie recipe for your mind's collection and appetite's satisfaction:)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
(original recipe by my dad and me:] )
1 package (14 oz) extra firm tofu, drained
1/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons stevia (cup-for-cup)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup homemade peanut butter
1 pre made graham cracker crust
Optional: chocolate chips sprinkled on top; cool whip or whipped cream to serve with
1) Put all ingredients (except, of course, the crust) into a food processor.
2) Blend until thoroughly combined.
3) Pour into crust.
4) Refridgerate overnight.
P.S. The filling itself, if not used in a crust, makes a lovely chocolatey pb mousse!! :)
Ciao for now!
