KILLER CHOCOLATE DEATH PIE
(that's actually good for you!)

based on an Original Recipe, "Moo-less Chocolate Pie",
by Alton Brown, host of "Good Eats" on the Food
Network - www.foodtv.com

HARDWARE:

Metal bowl, and pot of water for a double boiler thingy, 
or
microwaveable bowl 
(for melting chocolate)

Spoon ( any spoon will do )

Really good blender (don't use a crappy blender)

Pie tin (with pie crust in it)

SOFTWARE:

2 cups chocolate (chips or pieces, just
make sure they melt), 
(I use 4oz semi-sweet and 12oz bittersweet
chocolate)
1/3 cup coffee liqueur (kahlua)
1 block silken tofu 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 tablespoon honey 
1 prepared chocolate wafer crust 
 (I recommend using a graham cracker crust instead )
home-made is best, but store-bought is fine

(there's lots of recipes for pie crusts at FoodTV.com)

HOW TO MAKE A CHOCOLATE DEATH PIE:

Place a small metal bowl over a saucepan
with simmering water. Melt the chocolate
and coffee liqueur in the bowl. 
You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave on low power.

Stir in vanilla. 

Combine the tofu, chocolate mixture, and honey in the blender jar.
Liquefy until smooth. (this may be really thick)

ED'S ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: 

ALSO ADD TO THE BLENDER:
1/4 to 1/2 cup "Silk" brand plain soy milk (the red carton)
not all brands of soy milk are the same
you can also use water (enough to thin the mix)

Protein Powder,about 80-100 grams (11 to 14 blocks) 
enough to make it "zone friendly"
(for more info on "The 40-30-30 Zone" read "Enter The Zone" 
by Dr. Barry Sears or go online to www.drsears.com)

Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours, 
or until the filling is set.

              Yield: 8 - 12 servings
              Prep Time: about 2 1/2 hours
