How to make No Bake Chocolate Pudding Pie?

This Chocolate Pudding Pie is really easy to make with only a few ingredients in 6 simple steps.

Step 1: Soak the dates in the warm water for 10 mins. Then, put them in a food processor (with the soaking water) and pulse until finely chopped. You should have something like dates puree.

Step 2: In a bowl combine the dry ingredients (oats, cocoa powder, and shredded coconut). Add the dates puree and stir everything well. Leave it aside for 5-10 mins for the oats to soften a bit. (If the crust mixture seems too dry, you can add one or two tablespoons of water as needed.)

Step 3: Line an 8 inch (20 cm) round cake pan with removable bottom with parchment paper. Press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan and up the sides around 1 inch (2,5 cm) high. Do it with your fingers or the bottom of a spoon. Set aside.

Step 4: In a bowl combine the cornstarch and cocoa powder. Whisk a half cup of soy milk together with this mixture. Set aside.

Step 5: Heat the remaining one and a half cup of soy milk in a saucepan. Stir in the sugar and dairy-free chocolate chips until sugar dissolves and chocolate melts. When it starts to boil, whisk in the cornstarch mixture and cook for another 2-3 mins until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour into the prepared crust.

Step 6: Chill in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.
