CHOCOLATE MOUSSE PIE

 

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE PIE  Gluten Free, Vegan, Soy free

I really was craving chocolate. To be honest, my "chocolate dessert" over the last 2 years of being on this allergy free diet has consisted of either a brownie or a handful of dairy free chocolate chips. I have been missing the other types of chocolate dessert. Enter my husband- he loves chocolate mousse.  He suggested we find something in the pudding or mousse category to whip up. So I scoured the internet looking for a recipe that was vegan, gluten free AND soy free. It is pretty difficult. But then I found this simple and OH SO Delicious recipe by Marly from Namely Marly. Coconut milk saves the day! And without an overly coconut taste. AMAZING.  I used the same pie crust recipe that I use for my apple pie. My pie crust recipe can be found here. The only thing I changed, was to add an extra 1 TBsp of Earth Balance, soy-free butter to the dough. The recipe for the chocolate pie filling can be found here. I would top this off with some coconut whipped cream, recipe here. Our entire family ate the same chocolate dessert. And that is also rare.
