Chocolate Cream Pie

Everyone loves pie, but taking the time to make it isn't always loved. Here's my quick "i can make it vegan" chocolate cream pie! The pie crust and whip cream are both store bought. Those i'll post recipes for at a later date but since I was limited with time, a tasty spelt crust and soy whip did just fine!

Chocolate Cream Filling

3 T dark chocolate cocoa powder
3 T cornstarch
1 t vanilla
1/2 C sugar 
Handful of semi sweet dark chocolate chips 
2 C almond milk, unsweetened 

In a double boiler, you can just use a pot if you don't have one, mix dry ingredients. I've turned the stove on already to get the water boiling. Mix in almond milk and stir until you have a thick consistency. About 10 minutes. Once thick, remove from heat and add in chocolate chips and vanilla and mix until chips dissolve. Pour into pie crust let it cool until room temp. Cover with plastic wrap or oversized Tupperware container and put in the fridge. I let it chill over night but a couple hours or so will do. Once completely chilled you can add the whip cream. Or, just cut and add whip cream to individual slices.
