This stracciatella cream pie is inspired by the decadent Italian gelato of the same name. It's elegant and creamy with just the right distribution of crunchy dark chocolate chunks. Would you believe that it's easy to make and also made from only six ingredients?

No-Bake Stracciatella Cream Pie [Vegan, Gluten-Free]





For the Crust:

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 12 Medjool dates

For the Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews
  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or dark agave
  • 15 ounces silken tofu
  • 3 ounces vegan dark chocolate cut into chunks, plus more for garnish


  1. Start with making the crust. Combine cashews and dates in a blender and process at full speed. It may take a little while until you have a sticky, but still rough, dough.
  2. Prepare an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper (or grease with a tiny bit of oil) and press the dough onto the bottom.
  3. Combine silken tofu, sweetener, and cashews in a blender. Blend until really smooth. Mix this in a bowl with vegan cream cheese and chocolate chunks with a beater and whisk until creamy and fluffy. Finally, put the filling on top of the crust. Garnish with chocolate and chill until serving.
