I once had a friend who kept a fork in her car in case of a “pie emergency.” I wish I could take the credit for this one. But no, it wasn’t me. However, now that the holidays are here, I may have to steal the idea. There’s a very short window of time when it’s (sort of) acceptable to take a chocolate pudding pie to the face, and that time is now.
If you’re new to a plant-based diet and are struggling to find vegan holiday pies that don’t taste like chalk, you’ve come to the right place. The recipes below are the best of the best, hand-picked to soothe your sweet tooth. And your non-vegan loved ones? Trust me – they won’t even know the difference. These pies are that good! The only hard part will be choosing which one to make for your holiday soiree.
Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie

This pie is easy, thanks to our friends at Post Punk Kitchen! We used a store bought crust (most are vegan, but always double check the ingredients) and assembled it in less than 20 minutes. We recommend serving with vegan whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
Lemon Meringue Pie

If you go crazy for all things lemon like I do, this vegan holiday pie is a must-try. Bonus: Those who’ve heard about using the liquid from a can of chickpeas to make meringue will finally get to try their hand at this creative baking technique.

We know we’re really pushing our luck with Pumpkin Pie in the middle of December, but trust us. This is the perfect pumpkin pie recipe, which is made vegan with the help of a little silken tofu. If you’re feeling fancy, make our Toasted Pecan Pie Crust to go with it!
Frozen Banana Bourbon Pie
Author: Clean Green Simple
Did you say bourbon – in a pie? Sign me up! This vegan take on a banana cream pie gets a makeover with a homemade pecan crust and a sweet, nutty topping. If you decide to skip the bourbon, go easy on the maple syrup to keep the flavors balanced.
Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Pie

This vegan holiday pie has a creamy filling made light and airy with coconut whipped cream. Combine this with a graham cracker crust and top it with a vegan chocolate ganache and you’re in straight up vegan paradise.

Sweet strawberries pair perfectly with tart rhubarb to create one of my favorite vegan holiday pies. Finish it off with a crispy, crumbly topping for an irresistible, melt-in-your-mouth dessert that’s sure to impress everyone at the dinner table.
