Servings: 8

So decadent and amazing -- you won't believe it's vegan or low fat! You'll also need my recipe for a graham cracker crust (see "recipe" tab on navigation bar).

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare pie crust if you have not already done so. Place tofu and Tofutti in a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Stop, scrape the sides, and blend for another 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and blend for 3 minutes, stopping periodically to scrape the sides. Once fully incorporated, pour into prepared pie crust and smooth top with a spatula. Bake 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and place somewhere away from heat. Allow to cool to room temperature (about 2-3 hours). Chill overnight or for at least 10 hours before serving.

For the blueberry topping pictured in the blog post photos, combine 1 cup frozen wild blueberries with 1/2 cup of water, 1 tbsp agave nectar, 1 tsp lemon zest, 2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp cornstarch mixed into 2 tbsp of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Allow to thicken, stirring frequently. Turn off heat and allow the mixture to cool. Chill in the refrigerator until serving.
