Chocolate Silk Pie : Dairy Free : Low Carb / Keto


This recipe suggestion is from ruled.me site

"If you’ve been dairy free and struggling to find a low carb/keto treat that doesn’t include dairy, this is the pie for you! Decadent and dreamy, melt in your mouth creamy chocolate pie with a hint of vanilla and coconut to satisfy your dessert needs without the dairy...

This pie is so silky that your friends and family won’t believe it’s dairy free! The main ingredient is coconut cream, which can lend a flavour of coconut, but it is paired perfectly with 70% dark chocolate that is both low carb/keto friendly and vegan. With the addition of sea salt and almond butter, this dessert freezes solid but melts quickly into a silky cream pie. 

When preparing your coconut cream, it’s helpful to put the cans of full-fat coconut milk in the refrigerator a full day before you are making the pie. I like to keep a few cans chilled at all times for an occasion that may call for coconut cream! Another tip is to flip the can upside down before opening. By opening the can at the opposite end, you can easily drain off the coconut milk and are left with the pure cream, which is what we used in this recipe. 

This pie sets up perfectly in the freezer but will take a little time to soften before serving. It will take longer to set in the refrigerator but will keep at the perfect consistency if you can wait. This recipe can also be vegan by swapping out the ghee in the crust for vegan butter!

    The word 'silky' does it for me. I've often read about a dessert being decadent,rich, creamy - but silky is even more convincing to give it a try.
