Vegan Peanut Butter Pie

Vegan Peanut Butter Pie

Along with bruschetta, Josh’s culinary claim to fame is peanut butter pie. When his good friend, a vegan, recently turned 30, we decided to test out a healthy vegan version. This is a tall order since the original literally has nothing healthy in it: Cool Whip, Jiffy peanut butter, cream cheese, milk, refined sugar and an Oreo crust. I have to say, I was skeptical that a healthy vegan version of this could taste good, much less taste anything like it’s junky counterpart.

 

I was wrong. Our new version, made with coconut whipped cream, natural peanut butter, agave, coconut milk and a raw chocolate crust is just as good – if not better – than the original. Vegans and non-vegans alike will love this pie and they never have to know it’s good for them.

Easy Semi-Homemade Coconut Milk

Easy Semi-Homemade Coconut Milk

Ever since learning more about additives in non-dairy milk, I’ve said “no thanks” to most commercial non-dairy milks on the market (click here to see why).

 

I did, however, find a very easy, healthy and cheap solution to avoiding these additives: diluted coconut milk! Coconut milk has a ton of health benefits and is additive-free (if you buy the right brand). Say goodbye to expensive non-dairy milks with ingredients like carrageenan, “natural flavors” and gums.
