No bake chocolate pie recipe is a healthy dessert with easy chocolate almond pie crust, coconut cream filling and topped with fresh seasonal fruit and berries. | ifoodreal.com

This no bake chocolate pie recipe is to die for (just like healthy peanut butter pie)! My favourite dessert combination – chocolate, cream and fruit. And it’s cold and requires no baking – a perfect summer treat. When frozen, the filling tastes like ice cream. And it’s so darn easy – 6 ingredients and then fruit of your choice. After calculating the nutritional info I was considering moving this pie recipe from Desserts to Snacks.

What does the pie taste like? Imagine eating fruit topped with whipped cream, drizzled with cold crunchy chocolate and wrapped in more chocolate cookie dough crust. That cold chocolate drizzle…mmmm. You get the idea. The only difference is this pie is healthy and guilt free.

I tested this no bake chocolate pie recipe on quite a few people – my family, friends and more friends. Even the parents of friends. Everyone absolutely loved it! It is a berry season now and then stone fruit is coming, I just feel bad cooking all that goodness. This pie would be perfect for the backyard get togethers and you can use any fruit you wish.

A word on a coconut milk. You have to use full fat coconut milk and not light! Certain brands of coconut milk whip better than others. “Good” brands that I tried include Thai Kitchen, Native Forest and Trader Joe’s. I didn’t have much luck with Everland Organic and ended up using 2 cans instead of 1 to make up in volume. It was also lumpy. And that’s what you see here. So, I recommend buying the brands I tried or refrigerate 2 cans just in case.

And a word on serving and storage. Like any fresh fruit pie or cake it is best to consume within 24 – 36 hours after putting the pie together. However, there are a few options for you.

Make Ahead: Freeze the pie crust with filling, covered tightly with plastic wrap, for up to 6 months. Remove from the freezer, add toppings and refrigerate until ready to serve the same day. You can freeze assembled pie, covered tightly with plastic wrap, for up to 1 month.

Serve Fresh: Complete recipe’s directions and serve the same day. You can refrigerate assembled pie for up to 36 hours and freeze for 1.5 – 2 hours before serving.

Serve Frozen: Freeze the pie fully assembled and defrost for an hour before serving. Tastes like ice cream!

The easiest way to slice the no bake chocolate pie is when it’s a bit frozen. Enjoy, guys!

No Bake Chocolate Pie Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Remove from the fridge just before making the pie, flip the can bottom up and open. You should see a liquid on top. Discard or save it for adding to smoothies and oatmeal. At the bottom will be coconut cream. Transfer it to a deep bowl and whip on High with a mixer for a few minutes, until fluffy. Add maple syrup and vanilla extract, and blend until combined. Set aside.
  2. In a small sauce pan, on medium heat melt coconut oil. Add maple syrup, cacao powder, vanilla extract and stir to combine. Remove from heat and add almond meal. Mix with spatula until smooth dough forms. Transfer to a 9" pie dish and press into a pie crust, making sure to cover the sides of the dish. Start pressing the crust into the dish with your hands and then using a measuring cup.
  3. Pour Filling from Step 1 into the crust and level with spatula. Freeze for 2 hours.*
  4. Toast almonds in a small skillet on low-medium heat until lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently and watch closely not to burn. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips with 1 tbsp of coconut oil and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth and microwave more if necessary (microwaves vary). Set aside.
  6. To assemble the pie: Remove pie from the freezer and add a layer of strawberries, followed by raspberries and then sliced banana. Top with toasted almonds and drizzle with chocolate.
  7. Serving and Storage Instructions:
    Make Ahead: Freeze the pie crust with filling, covered tightly with plastic wrap, for up to 6 months. Remove from the freezer, add toppings and refrigerate until ready to serve the same day. You can freeze assembled pie, covered tightly with plastic wrap, for up to 1 month.
    Serve Fresh: Complete recipe’s directions and serve the same day. You can refrigerate assembled pie for up to 36 hours and freeze for 1.5 – 2 hours before serving.
    Serve Frozen: Freeze the pie fully assembled and defrost for an hour before serving. Tastes like ice cream!
    The easiest way to slice the pie is when it’s a bit frozen.

    Chocolate + cream + fruit?!!! You’re speaking my language! Scrumptious.

    So you were going to move this from dessert to snacks? Hmm, how about the breakfast category. Would love a piece right now!

      LOL. I never thought of having this pie for breakfast but you are genius! I was writing this recipe in the afternoon, hence the snack idea.:)

    So happy to have found your blog! Thank you for such great recipes. My husband is allergic to almond so I wouldn’t be able to use the almond flour. Any substitution ideas?

      Yes. Any nut you can ground finely. Hazelnut meal would be the closest. Bob’s Red Meal sells it or you can make your own easily by grinding the nuts. You are welcome!

    This looks absolutely delicious, but I am not sure I would call it a snack. At almost 400 calories and 29 g of fat (about half of what most people need in a day), it is more like a mini-meal… Dessert is still dessert even with all of the healthy ingredients. Might experiment with some smaller portions or mini-pies.

      Depends what’s in your dessert and the portion. If I have a slice of this pie then I simply don’t eat as many fats that day. Another half of avocado and all in control. Then nuts and fruits here and I think it could be a snack. Fruit, nuts and coconut milk are quite wealthy. Not even a tsp of maple syrup per portion. Yep, a snack. Easily.

            Just about! I have my sister hooked too! Lol. I’ve looked at other food blogs but I always go back to yours. It’s simple and having 3 boys I don’t have time to complicated meals. I also noticed a huge difference in my over all body appearance which just makes it that much better. 😉

          • Olena

            3 boys?! You are a superwoman! I have 2 and it’s hard enough to keep up with their energy and mess lol. Well, technically I have 3 in using my husband lol. I’m so glad to hear that and thank you for your kind words! Guess what, my husband started to eat very clean a few months back and he dropped 2 pant sizes and has a six pack now. And he doesn’t even eat as clean as I do. Me – I still have a way to go. So, there is hope for us, girls.:) I definitely learnt it’s easier for man to get lean and more definition.

      Wow, that is an approval of all approvals LOL! Thank you for letting me know. See, if they only sold healthy pies and cakes at stores, so many people would love them. I would buy them for sure! Maybe it’s a good thing though, otherwise I would be so so fat.:)

    Made this today, froze it & YUM! So decadent! Not sure the coconut milk I got was great- I put 2 cans in the fridge overnight & only about 1/4 of each can was kind of thick. I froze the pie after making, then thawed for about 1.25 hrs. I hope I did right in putting it back in the freezer, it looked like it was getting soupy & I was afraid it would get real watery in the fridge.

    I have not made the chocolate berry pie yet but I can not wait and I was thinking maybe I will put about quarter cup to a half a cup of a thick name brand yogurt ( starts with a F ) I will contact you to let you know if it worked out.

      I tried that and it didn’t go well. Greek yogurt, even Fage brand, became runny once mixed with the rest of the ingredients and it was a mess! I had the same intention to make the pie higher in protein but Greek yogurt didn’t work. I can tell you.:)

      Clean eating is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle you live for life. Diets don’t work, people break. Hope it works out for you this time and welcome.:)
