Recipe: Silky Chocolate Pie

This recipe is my Happy Valentine’s Day post to you. :-)   Since today is a day that I work, I am going to prepare my Valentine’s Day meal tomorrow.  I thought you would enjoy this recipe.  I had my Premier Taste Testers try it yesterday and everyone who tried it loved it and thought it was smooth and silky and rich.  This is definitely a recipe that will serve a good number of people, at least 16.

Dr. Natasha has stated that chocolate is approved once digestive problems have stopped.  She says we can use cocoa powder.  In this recipe I use Baker’s unsweetened chocolate which the ingredients state it is nothing but chocolate.  If you wish, you may try substituting 9 tablespoons more of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons more of coconut oil instead of the 3 ounces of Baker’s unsweetened chocolate squares. You will find this recipe in an easy print format below.

Grain-Free Dairy-Free Silky Chocolate Pie

Silky Chocolate Pie

  1. Soak the cashews in filtered water 4-6 hours. Drain.
  2. Melt Baker’s chocolate and coconut oil over a double boiler until melted. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Place cashews in the blender. Add coconut milk, vanilla, salt, honey and cocoa powder.  Depending on the power of your blender you may need to do 2-3 batches. Blend until completely smooth.
  4. While blender is running and mixture is swirling, drizzle the melted Baker’s chocolate and coconut oil in and blend until thoroughly mixed. The mixture will become even smoother with the addition of the coconut oil and Baker’s chocolate.
  5. Pour into prepared chocolate pie shell.
  6. Refrigerate several hours until firm. Overnight is best, if possible.
  7. This pie freezes well and is even good frozen solid.

Serves 16

For what it’s worth, I use an Oster Beehive blender (this is my Amazon affiliate link) which I bought from Costco for under $60.   The model I bought is no longer available, but this one from Amazon is the same in power – 600 watts – and has the all metal drive.  I would like to have a Vitamix one day, but for now this blender is working very well for me.

  2. Whip solid coconut oil and honey together.
  3. Mix coconut and honey into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry blender until mixture looks crumbly.
  4. Add 2 teaspoons of ice water gently lifting the dry ingredients and folding over until slightly moistened.  The mixture should look crumbly.

    Is there any way to sub xylitol for the honey?? This looks amazingly yummy!!

    Hi Ashley, I’ve never worked with xylitol but you might just try removing the honey and putting in however much xylitol you think would be enough to sweeten the pie and see how it works. The honey does add some liquid so maybe you could try using 1/2 cup less of the coconut milk instead of the honey. I bet that would work. I hope it works out for you. :-)

    My DS (he’s 5) has the dreaded peanut and tree nut allergy. Can you think of any way I can make this nut free? He can eat coconut with no problems, BTW–I gather it’s more of a fruit. I was thinking that I could maybe try to use creamed coconut, but then it surely wouldn’t be silky smooth! More like, gritty-coco-nutty. Sigh! Thanks for your wonderful recipes! I’m making the squash coconut custard this weekend!

    Hi Carla, ooooohhh… I really don’t know how else to change this. I wonder if you did something with gelatin? It wouldn’t be exactly the same and I’m not what to recommend – how much etc. If I come across something I’ll let you know. I assume you’re doing GAPS?

    Try avocado instead on nuts. It may have a pudding texture. But it should taste great !
