Ingredients
  

Chocolate Crumb Crust:

  • 3-4 tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil melted
  • 25 chocolate cookies

Mint filling:

  • 6 oz chickpeas
  • ¾ tsp tartar cream
  • 2-3 cups sugar powdered
  • 5 tbsp creme de menthe
  • 16 oz vegan cream cheese
  • 2 oz coconut refined, melted
  • 4 oz chocolate chips vegan
  • cookie crumbs vegan, optional

Instructions
 

Cookie Crumb Crust:

  • Put 20-25 chocolate cookies in a food processor and pulse until they're finely smashed.
  • Combine melted vegan butter with the crushed sandwich cookies and press onto the bottom of a 9-inches springform pan.
  • Place in the fridge to cool while you prepare the filling.

Mint Pie Filling:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine 3/4 cup aquafaba and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar.
  • Mix for 7 minutes with an electric mixer, stirring occasionally to scrape the edges.
  • Mix in 1 cup powdered sugar, a little at a time, to the beaten aquafaba for another 2 minutes.
  • Set aside the bowl of whipped aquafaba once it has been beaten for a 10 minutes
  • In a separate mixing dish, combine 2 cups vegan cream cheese, crème de Menthe, and melted refined coconut oil with an electric mixer.
  • Add 2 cups powdered sugar to the cream cheese mixture slowly, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • To prevent the mixture from becoming too soggy, sprinkle with chocolate chips or cookie crumbs and fold it together with a spatula.
  • Make sure there's enough room for the filling, and don't be afraid to add some extra chocolate chips or cookie crumbs if desired.
  • Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Frozen is best.
