Don't let the tofu in this pie fool you - but it will anyway! Tastes like a cream pie, but without all the dairy and fat. Delicious, decadent.

So good! I changed a couple things but for my brothers that are tofu-haters they couldn't even tell and loved it. I used choc. soymilk less almond extract and didn't have oj concentrate so used a strawberry/banana/orange juice concentrate instead. also topped it with whip cream lightly sweetened with about 2T honey.

This is divine!! The only thing is...the orange juice concentrate will give it a very slight orange flavor...so if you are not a fan of that you might want to leave it out. I used chocolate soy milk instead of rice milk. Delicious! Read More

Can't give this 5 stars because I changed it so much but it is definitely 5 stars with my modifications! I found a similar recipe online by Alton Brown and I merged the two and ended up with following changes. Used the Graham Cracker Crust I recipe from this site. Substituted Cream of coconut (from the alcoholic beverage aisle) for the orange juice concentrate and the maple syrup. Used a 1/4 cup rice milk and 1/4 cup chocolate liquor (creme de cocoa could use any liquor i.e. coffee orange etc). Lastly I increased the chocolate chips to 1.5 cups and tofu to 12 oz. Filled the crust perfectly and set very nicely very creamy and very flavorful! Read More

This pie is easy to make and REALLY yummy. You'd never guess from the taste that it contains tofu and rice milk instead of the usual high-fat cream! Read More

I like to find ways to use tofu in our daily menu without always having it "visible". This is a winner Read More

Awsome recipe! I cut back on the almond extract to 1/8 tsp. Found that the 1/4 tsp. is a little strong. But overall it was excellent! I have made this 2 times now and it has set up perfectly. Thanks! Read More
