Easy as Chocolate Cream Pie

When chocolate is calling your name, you have to give in. Turn to this easy, healthy, and decadent chocolate cream pie! The filling's secret ingredient will shock you as well as fool your taste buds into thinking you're eating something truly sinful. Not only is this pie easy to make, it's delicious and packed with vitamins and nutrients. The entire pie is made with entire whole food and vegan ingredients. All you need to go along with the ingredients is a food processor and a mixer! I invite you to try out this recipe for yourself, family, and friends. This one will be great for a party.
