The countdown to the holiday baking has begun, with Thanksgiving only a week away! Want a healthy, yet scrumptious cream pie? My (Dairy-Free) Chocolate Cream Pie is baked with the best wholesome ingredients that your family won't even notice a difference in taste from a normal chocolate cream pie! Did I mention it is also low-fat, healthy, and vegan?! YAY!!
I truly believe in cultivating the an appropriate, healthy balance in life... in all aspects of life, including desserts! With that being said, I decided to opt for regular whip cream and regular dark chocolate to make my (Dairy-Free) Chocolate Cream Pie. However, you could make this completely vegan by choosing dairy-free chocolate and garnishing with a coconut whip cream.
You could also make life a tad bit easier by simply buying store-bought pie crust (even if its not chocolate flavor) and it will still taste yummy! The magic is truly in the chocolate mousse itself.
I recommend baking with a high-quality dark chocolate (~70%) for an ultra rich chocolate cream pie. Plus, dark chocolate makes it guilt-free, right?! Dark Chocolate is a high source of antioxidants, may improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, and has been shown to improve brain functions, as well.
I took the pie directly out of the refrigerator after being in there for 12+ hours, so it was perfectly sliceable. However, I think the pie could sit out for 1-2 hours and still be easy to slice... and possibly more creamy as it sits in room temperature!
It is time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
