This chocolate coconut cream pie has a delicious raw brownie crust, a velvety smooth chocolate pudding filling, and fluffy whipped coconut cream on the top!
What’s better than chocolate for dessert?!
How about a chocolate on chocolate dessert…
or better yet, a chocolate on chocolate dessert that doesn’t require the use of your stove? Yeah, now we’re talkin’!
This pie. Words cannot describe how in love I am with this creation. It’s a bunch of my favorite things wrapped up in a slice of chocolatey yumminess.
Not to mention it’s made with wholesome ingredients. That’s kind of just a bonus though, because this pie is SO FREAKING GOOD, anything on top of that is just a plus!
It starts with a raw brownie crust. I’m not talking about raw gooey brownie batter from the boxed stuff, full of raw eggs and salmonella. (But, if you like that stuff, I won’t judge. I admit that I’ve
licked the bowl clean eaten some brownie batter before too.)
No, this brownie is made out of dates, nuts, and chocolate, but really tastes a lot like a brownie! It’s pretty cool. I love finding healthier ingredients
to use in desserts.
The filling is made of creamy avocados, chocolate, coconut oil, and pure maple syrup. I know, avocados in dessert? Trust me, you cannot taste the avocados in this pie. My daughter, who is not an avocado fan, ate this pie up. I would actually catch her in the refrigerator sneaking bites of pie from the plate. I know, how dare she
*Quick tip: Ripe avocados should be firm, but yield slightly with a gently pressing. If it is too hard, then most likely it is not ripe yet. If too mushy then the avocado is overripe and shouldn’t be used in this pudding. Also, discard if you notice a foul or unpleasant smell when it’s cut open. The avocado may be bad and should not be eaten.
To top it all off, the chocolate layer is covered with a fluffy, whipped coconut cream. It’s a delicious, coconutty and dairy-free alternative to whipped cream. It’s also much healthier and just SO yummy:)
Top with toasted coconut or berries, and enjoy! This dessert is sure to amaze any chocolate fan. And shhh, no one has to know about the healthy ingredients inside. I promise, if you don’t tell, neither will I!
