Chocolate Lasagna | vegan and gluten-free recipe - Elavegan (2)500k Instagram followers

Normally, I don’t share a lot of personal stuff in my blog posts because I think most visitors never read my blog posts anyway. They jump straight to the recipe and that’s it. And I mean that’s totally fine, I know we all have a busy life and why should someone read a 700 words blog post about food?! Reaching half a million Instagram followers makes me very happy though. I know it’s just a number but I am proud of what I achieved in 3 1/2 years. Growing an Instagram account organically from ZERO to 500k is hard work.

Working 7 days a week and 14 hours a day is pretty normal for me. Blogging is certainly a full-time job and being a perfectionist can make it difficult to enjoy some off time. I often make one hundred photos a day and then I decide that they aren’t Insta worthy. Stupid, I know. Going to bed at 2-3 am is something I need to stop doing as well. But still, I love what I am doing and getting hundreds of sweet comments and messages on Instagram every single day makes me very happy.

I appreciate every single follower and to me, they actually aren’t just followers, they are my Insta family. I met so many amazing people on Instagram who became real friends and that’s really wonderful. So, if you are following my Insta journey, THANK YOU! I appreciate you! If you happen to like my photos and even leave comments, well THANK YOU SO MUCH! You are awesome and I am very grateful that you are part of my Insta family.

Now back to this #veganfoodp*rn lasagna. I hope it’s worth 500k, haha. To me it definitely is, I always wanted to make this recipe and this was the perfect time to try it out. We are talking about 4 layers of creamy deliciousness! Is this a dessert I would eat on a daily basis? Probably not. But celebrating my Insta milestone AND Christmas in a few days made me realize that I need this yumminess in my life. And since it’s plant-based it’s simply like eating a salad… (just kidding).

As mentioned in the recipe below, you can actually use your favorite brownie recipe. I have linked to my best vegan brownies, however, any brownie recipe is fine. You can even go to a store and buy a brownie baking mix if you want to save time.

I used silken tofu for the cream layer which made it super creamy. Adding coconut oil helps to firm up the layer a little bit and it also helps tastewise. But I know that some of you cannot eat soy, that’s why I also mentioned a second and even third soy-free alternative in the recipe notes. I also thought about making the cream layer for this chocolate lasagna with white (Japanese) sweet potatoes, however, this will result in a cream layer which isn’t very fluffy. It might still be an interesting and healthy option.

Brownie Layer:

  • 1 batch of these brownies (*see recipe instructions)

Cream Layer:

Pudding Layer:


  • I recommend measuring the ingredients ingramson akitchen scale.

  • Prepare the brownies as per the instructions in this recipe. You can also make your favorite brownie recipe or use a store-bought vegan brownie mix. Bake the brownies in an 8"x 8" prepared baking pan and let cool.

  • For the cream layer, put all ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until the mixture is creamy. Pour HALF of the cream onto the brownie layer and put the pan into the freezer for about 30-60 minutes.

  • For the pudding layer, put all ingredients in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat and let the pudding simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour the pudding onto the cream layer. Refrigerate or freeze for 10 minutes.

  • Finally, pour the remaining half of the cream layer onto the pudding layer. Add 1/4 cup of dairy-free chocolate chips (optional) and refrigerate the pan for at least 4 hours (better overnight) to set. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days. Enjoy!

  • Check the recipe notes below for a soy-free cream layer.


  • You can use dairy-free, soy-free cream cheese instead of silken tofu, however, most brands contain a lot of fat. So, if you use store-bought cream cheese, definitely leave out the coconut oil. Depending on the thickness of the cream cheese you might need to add a splash of plant-based milk to thin out the cream cheese.
  • Another soy-free alternative could be to use whipped coconut cream (the thick part of canned coconut milk after you put it in the fridge overnight). I haven't tried out this method, so I cannot say how well it works in this recipe.
  • I recommend using powdered sugar for the cream layer. You can simply put Xylitol* or regular sugar in your high-speed blender and mix for a few seconds until it's a fine powder. *Desserts with Xylitol should be never given to dogs.
