Cookies + cream chocolate mousse pie recipe

Vegan, quick & easy.

Say hello to my delicious and easy 'Cookies and Cream chocolate mousse pie'!
A delicious light and airy chocolate mousse, with a cookie base, topped with toasted meringue, crushed cookies and melted chocolate. 
Perfect for any occasion requiring a spectacularly delicious and easy dessert.

This pie has a tasty crunch from the base and a silky smooth filling which is dreamy! I decided to add the addition of the toasted meringue not only for looks but flavour as well. It complimented the sweet filling beautifully!
I'm sure you'll love it!

Ingredients for the crust
-220g of Oreo cookies
-90g of dairy-free butter

Ingredients for the chocolate mousse filling
-900g of silken tofu (drained)
-3 tablespoons of maple syrup
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract/ vanilla bean paste 
-200g of dairy-free dark chocolate (melted)

Ingredients for the whipped topping
-100g of chickpea brine (aquababa)
-75g of golden caster sugar
-1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
-1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
...

To make the crust
Step 1- Line a 9" push up cake tin with greaseproof paper.

Step 2- Place the biscuits into a food processor/ blender and whizz up until crumb-like.

Step 3- Melt the butter/margarine and pour into the biscuits and mix together until like wet sand.

Step 4- Firmly press the biscuit mixture into the lined tin until its compact.

You can either place it into the oven for 5 minutes or straight into the fridge whilst you make the filling.

To make the mousse filling
Step 1- Melt the chocolate and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Step 2- Place the tofu, maple syrup, vanilla and melted chocolate into a food processor and whizz up until silky smooth.
Scrape down the sides of the blender to make sure everything gets combined.

Step 3- Pour the filling onto the crust and level with a spoon or spatula. 

Step 4- Place the pie into the freezer and allow to set for 3-5 hours.
You could leave it overnight.

To make the meringue

Step 1- Drain the chickpea brine from a can of chickpeas and place into a mixing bowl.
Whizz up on high until foamy, then add in the cream of tartar.
I use my Kitchenaid stand mixer with the balloon attachment.
You can use an electric hand whisk.

Step 2- Add in the sugar and continue to whip up until stiff meringue peaks form.


Step 3- When thick & glossy, add in the vanilla.


Step 4- Spoon the meringue on top of the pie and toast with a blow torch.

You can toast the meringue either using a blow torch (which I did) or by popping the meringue under the grill for a few seconds to lightly toast.

Top off with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate and crushed cookies.


Allow to defrost and come to room temperature before enjoying.


Serve fresh or store in a sealed container in the fridge.

Best eaten within a few days.
