To honor this once-a-century event, we must eat pie.

I’ve been craving chocolate like crazy lately, so I decided to try making something chocolaty and creamy — but I didn’t want something full of sugar and cream. A few weeks ago, I tried this raw vegan chocolate pudding recipe from Ohsheglows.com. It was delicious! But there was definitely a banana-y aftertaste. But I loved the consistency, and the use of raw cacao powder and avocados.I went in search of something similar that I could make that would not include the bananas.

I found it. The recipe I ended up with is adapted from this beautiful Chocolate Pie recipe from Pure and Simple.

I made some modifications that I think make it creamier. It’s not overly sweet, which I like, but you could always add more honey if you want it sweeter.

Enjoy! Let me know what you think!
