Keto Chocolate Cream Pie

I’m launching my next 90 Day Keto Challenge very soon. Would you like to join me? It includes weekly webinars, meal plans and shopping list, a workbook, and private online support group. Everything you need to start (or restart) your keto diet. For more info, click here.


 

This chocolate pie is low carb, high fat, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian, too. It packs a whopping 477 mg of potassium per slice and is a play on a raw vegan avocado chocolate pie, but to amp up the fat, I’ve added cocoa butter. This makes it really rich, plus as it cools, it has a very firm  yet creamy texture. I made this pie originally for Thanksgiving 2015 while my son and I were doing a month of dairy free keto. It turned out so well that he asked me to recreate it for the holiday party at one of the restaurants he works at.

Chocolate Cream Filling

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 9 inch pie plate with coconut oil. In a food processor fitted with an S blade, combine the coconut oil, eggs, coconut and hazelnut flour. Pulse until dough comes together in a ball. Place dough into the pie plate. Using your fingers, press and spread out evenly in pie place. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until lightly brown. Let cool.
  3. Clean out the food processor and begin preparing the chocolate pie filling. Remove skin and pits from avocados and discard. Put avocado, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, and Swerve into the processor bowl. Turn processor on low and slowly pour melted cocoa butter in and mix until smooth and combined. Stop blade and scrape down sides if needed and blend further.
  4. Pour chocolate pie filling into cooled pie crust and spread out evenly. Place pie in the refrigerator and cool completely, about 2 – 4 hours, before serving.

Cooks Notes: You could top this pie with whipped heavy cream (as pictured), or in keeping with dairy free, make a coconut whipped topping, or simply eat it like it is. Another addition I suggest is 1 – 2 tablespoons of greens powder mixed into the pie filling.
