Raw Chocolate Ganache Pie

You will love this one!

This has to my families very favorite chocolate pie – if we didn’t tell anyone they would not know it was all “raw”.  Once you make this once it will become one of your favorites too.  It is a deep chocolate taste so a little goes a long way.  Enjoy!

Crust

  • 2 cup pecans
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Filling

  • 2 cups pre soaked cashews
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Combine all crust ingredients in food processor or vitamix blender and mix until evenly moist.  Grease pie pan with coconut oil and spread with  back of spoon.  Place in freezer while you prepare filling.

Combine all filling ingredients in clean processor – blend until very smooth.  Pour into crush and freeze for 1-3 hours then you can refrigerate until ready to eat.

Note:  You will need a high powered blender to mix the filling to a smooth consistency – ordinary blenders will not work as the texture will not be smooth.

    Hi Susan! Any ideas on what I could substitute the dates with? Trying to avoid so much sweet even though I know dates are delicious and otherwise so healthy! I tried your recipe years ago and was just thinking of it and craving this deliciousness…

    That’s great, I love monk fruit! But do you think I’ll need to add something for added moisture that will be missing without the dates?

      No in the crust you can absolutely just omit the dates and not add anything but if you want it slightly sweet just a touch of monkfruit. The oils from the pecans and coconut oil is sufficient. I have made crusts like this many times with no dates. Matter of fact you can make a crust with just pecans and butter – grind them up fine. I wouldn’t do it for the chocolate ganache though. So must omit dates and follow the rest.
