So today I decided that I really wanted Chocolate Cream Pie. Now for me to do this I would not only have to figure out a crust, but also figure out the pudding for the filling. Oh my goodness. It turned out great!
I even had it before my dinner… Tee Hee(don’t tell)
I didn’t even wait to make my coconut cream to go on top the first piece.
Chocolate Cream Pie (Paleo/ Gluten Free/ Grain Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 1/2 c. almond flour
1 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 c. palm sugar (or desired granular sugar)
1/2 c. coconut oil (melted)
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
Stir almond flour, coconut flour and palm sugar together. Mix in coconut oil.
Press into 9 inch pie plate. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until starting to brown on the edges.
Take out and let cool.
2 c. plus 2 Tbsp. coconut milk
1/3 c. cocoa
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. tapioca starch
2 tsp. vanilla
In a small bowl, mix together the 2 Tbsp. of coconut milk and the corn starch; set aside.
Whisk sugar, cocoa and salt together in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in the 2 cups of the coconut milk.
Put pan on medium/low heat, continuously whisking. (Believe me if you stop, you’ll get lumps)
As your mixture starts boil, add in corn starch mixture. Let pudding thicken, then remove from heat. Whisk in vanilla.
Pour chocolate filling into baked pie crust. Put into the refrigerator for at least two hours to cool.
If you would like to, you can top off your pie with Dairy Free Coconut Cream!
This recipe is definitely a favourite of mine!
** I have even made this pie and frozen it. It works great as a frozen dessert!!
