Now remember this was just the first try it is very good but you may want to change it according to your taste. Some like more peanutty flavor. It may be good with a peanut crust or some type of nut crust. Maybe nut and chocolate chunks in the filling. More chocolate for some, and peanut butter for others? Play with it have fun let me know what you come up with and/or how you like it!

My Favorite Whipped Creme:
Take a can of coconut milk (not light kind) and get cold in fridge (preferably over night) Then open the can and with a spoon, spoon out only the thick stuff. Put into a small food processor or blender add about 3-4 Tablespoons raw or organic sugar more if you like it sweeter and ½ teaspoon vanilla. Blend until smooth and creamy use like whipped creme.
Other Ingredients: (optional)
½ cup chopped vegan carob chips
½ cup chopped peanuts
Instructions for Chocolate Filling:
Place all ingredients into the blender and process until smooth. If you want a more even darker chocolate flavor leave out the banana. If you want it more milk chocolate like keep the banana and exchange some or all of the water for rice or almond milk. Place on top of crust in pie pan.
Instructions for Peanut Butter Filling:
Place all ingredients in order listed, into the blender and process until smooth. Don't be afraid to add another banana, some rice milk or something if it's too thick and not blending well. You will want it to be a fairly thick pudding like consistency though. It will set up it the fridge. Place on top of chocolate layer in pie. You may have a little left over to enjoy by itself or with something else. Fill pretty much to the top of the pan. Cover and Refrigerate for at least 4 hours overnight is better! Make up "My Favorite Whipped Creme" and spread over the very top of the pie. Sprinkle with chopped carob chips and peanuts.
