Individual Chocolate Cream Pies

This Chocolate Cream Pie is a deconstructed and plant based version of the classic diner dessert.

This is a sponsored post. I received Cocoa powder & Chocolate from Divine Chocolate. Chocolate Cream pie recipe and all opinions in the post are entirely mine.

My second recipe for this week’s #Choctoberfest is this creamy, dreamy and luscious vegan chocolate individual cream pies. This is a 100% vegan and plant friendly recipe but it tastes just as creamy as the traditional dairy based version.

Individual Chocolate Cream Pies

Divine Chocolates:

Divine Chocolate Pudding

Our generous sponsor Divine Chocolate sent cocoa powder, 55% and 70% baking chocolate bars. These baking bars are fair trade, non-GMO, and Vegan Society Certified. They have an exquisite melting point because they are made from 100% pure cocoa butter.

Vegan Chocolate Pudding:

The lovely ingredients sent by Divine Chocolates inspired me to make this deconstructed cream pie. Vegan Chocolate pudding made with plant based milk (I used almond milk and coconut-almond creamer) was silky, creamy and deeply chocolaty. You can just stop at the pudding and devour it by the spoonfuls.

But make it extra special with the no-bake, buttery graham cracker crust and a smooth layer of whipped cream. You can make this dessert as a pie in a pie pan – but I like mini desserts. So I made these individual servings.

This is a great dessert to make ahead of time since it has to be served chilled. Perfect make ahead dessert for parties and both kids and adults will LOVE it.

Instructions
Make Vegan Chocolate Pudding:
  1. In a medium heavy pan, whisk sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Slowly whisk in the milk and cream and vanilla bean extract (if using). Make sure there are no lumps.
  2. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat while whisking constantly.
  3. Lower the heat to a simmer cover and simmer gently for 8~10 minutes or until the pudding begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla extract.
  4. Let the pudding cool completely.
Prep other layers:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Mix well to combine.
  2. Make coconut cream frosting* or use store bought vegan frosting.
Assemble:
  1. Layer the graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of 4 small serving bowls, top with alternating layers of chocolate pudding and whipped cream. Garnish with shaved chocolate. Chill for at least 4 hours and Enjoy!!
Recipe Notes
  • If you want the pudding to be on the sweet side, increase sugar to ½ cup.
  • If you don't have access to vegan creamer, then use the same quantity of almond or other plant based milk. The pudding may take slightly longer to thicken.
  • Refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk overnight. Open and scoop out the now thickened coconut cream into a mixing bowl. The clear coconut water can be used in soups, smoothies etc.
