Chocolate Cream Pie — Vegan

 

Start in the reverse order listed: First start the Topping — Second prepare the crust — Third make the filling. 
 
Filling
 
 
•           3 ripe Avocados
•           ½ cup Cocoa powder
•           2-½ cups Almond Milk
•           2 tablespoons real Maple Syrup
•           1 teaspoon Stevia powder or ½ teaspoon liquid, choose a brand maltodextrin free
•           1 teaspoon non-alcohol Vanilla
•           pinch Sea Salt
 
Remove pit and skin from the avocados — discard. Place avocado meat and all other ingredients in bowl of food processor or VitaMix. Process until smooth and creamy. Scrape sides of processor often or use plunger for VitaMix. If mix is too dry add one tablespoon of almond milk at a time until mixture blends. Pour into prepared piecrust. Chill for minimum of 8 hours, however, 24 hours is optimal. 
 
Crust
 
•           1 cup raw Pecan halves
•           1 cup raw unsulfured Coconut flakes
•           1/2 cup dried unsulfured Dates
Place ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and blend until a ball forms. Scrap sides of bowl and process a moment longer. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate. 
 
Topping
 
•           1-½ cups Almond Milk
•           ½ cup boiled Water
•           1 heaping tablespoon Agar Agar
•           1 teaspoon Coconut Oil OG
•           ½ teaspoon Stevia powder, choose a brand maltodextrin free
•           ½ teaspoon non-alcohol Vanilla
Bring the ½ cup water to a boil. Pour into a blender or VitaMix, add agar agar and wait a couple of minutes to dissolve. Add almond milk and blend on high until smooth. Make sure steam can be vented through lid or mixture will explode and possibly cause burns. Add all other ingredients and blend until well combined and smooth. Taste and adjust flavors if need be. Pour into a glass baking dish. Refrigerate until set about a half hour. Once set cut into ½ inch squares and scrape into blender or food processor. Process topping until fluffy and spoon onto pie. Chill for minimum of 8 hours, however, 24 hours is optimal.
