Healthy Holiday Treats: Is it possible to indulge while maintaining your health? As evident by the recent snow fall and frigid temperatures, it is official: the season of winter is upon us!

Levana’s No Bake Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe is one healthy holiday treat! The guests at your next holiday party will never believe that these are healthy! How deliciously decadent do they look? You could even bring a plate of these as a gift to someone else’s party.


  • 5-ounce package graham crackers (Gluten-free OK)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or extra light olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet or bittersweet chopped chocolate or chocolate chips, best quality
  • 1/4 cup pure cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder, decaf OK
  • 2 tablespoons rum or brandy (liquor stores)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar, or Stevia or Truvia, or a drop more if needed; before adding more, taste
  • 1 8-ounce container vegan cream cheese
  • 2 pouches Levana Nourishments Cocoa Coffee
  • 1 cup peanut butter; try another nut butter if you are accommodating people with peanut allergies


Make the crust: In a food processor, finely grind the crackers with the oil.  Press the  mixture very firmly into a 9-inch pie plate.
On a very low flame, melt the chips, cocoa, coffee, rum and sugar (or microwave 2 minutes). Then, transfer to a food processor, and process until perfectly smooth, a full minute. Pour the mixture over the crust. Chill. Cut the pie in wedges.
