Vegan & GF Chocolate Cream Pie
We LOVE this grain free and vegan chocolate cream pie. Many times we will bring it out for special celebrations like Pi Day, 3.14 aka at March 14.
You can has this quick & easy pie to made in a few hours. You’ll need a bag of Momma’s Mammoth Munch, flavor of your choice. Plus additional nuts (almonds, pecans or walnuts). Dates, full fat coconut milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder, arrowroot flour, whip cream, chocolate bar, sea salt & vanilla.
Plus in nuts in food processor or high speed blender until you have a coarse mixture. Slowly blend in dates until it becomes a sticky mixture. If it’s too dry add a few more dates, one at a time until you reach the right texture. Pat down in a pie pan. Set aside.
Use only cream from the can of coconut milk. To get cream from a can of coconut milk put it in the refrigerator for a 2-4 hours until is separates. Take the top the creamy top part of the coconut milk to use for this recipe. Save the watery portion for smoothies. Whisk the milk to break up the clumps. Then whisk the powdered cocoa, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Pour into the crust, spread evenly, refrigerate for 2 hours or more until serving. Top with whipped coconut cream (homemade or from the store)
Coconut Whip Cream
Place can in refrigerator for up to 2 days. I've even done this over night and it work. Chill your bowl and beaters for about 30 minutes before, however if you forget it will still work. Scoop out just the creamy top of the coconut milk. Beat this on high speed until peaks form. Now add the maple syrup beat well. Keep refrigerated until serving time. Whip again is needed.
To serve drop a dollop of coconut cream onto a slice of pie with shavings from a dark chocolate bar. It'll have your friends and family swooning for more.
