Icebox pie brings back lots of memories of my grandmother. She loved her treats and made many of them homemade. These days, it seems we satisfy our cravings more with store bought treats, which desperately lack any sort of nutritional foundation. I say, make dessert healthy!

Creamy and thick yet not immensely heavy like those with mega sugar content…this paleo chocolate pie filling is rich and has extra good fats snuck right in. It pairs perfectly with my Coconut Macaroon Pie Crust!

Paleo Chocolate Pie with Coconut Macaroon Crust

Ingredients

Instructions

    For pie crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Whisk all 4 egg whites until frothy, add vanilla and honey and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine coconut, potato starch, and stevia powder.
  4. Add egg white mixture to dry ingredients and combine well.
  5. In a greased pie tin, press in mixture evenly, in center and up sides of tin.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges start to brown
  7. For pie filling:
  8. Start by melting coconut oil and chocolate chips over medium heat.
  9. Once melted add in coconut milk, maple syrup, and salt. Note: I try to keep sweeteners to a minimum so i used only one tablespoon maple syrup; if you prefer it to be sweeter you can add another tablespoon.
  10. Now slowly add in egg yolks while stirring continuously.
  11. Allow chocolate mixture to heat and thicken (continue stirring).
  12. Once mixture reaches a pudding like consistency remove from heat, add vanilla, and add to blender.
  13. Add peeled and pitted avocado to blender and puree until smooth.
  14. Pour filling into pie crust and refrigerate for an hour or more to set.

Jennifer is a wife and mother of 3 in pursuit of better health for her family. After being gluten free for 4 years, and having a multitude of chronic health issues, she realized there was still too much processed “food” in her pantry and change was needed. Jennifer began feeding her family more meals from WHOLE foods and less from boxes. Her recipes are predominantly paleo, meaning they are free of grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar, but make allowances for a few treats and sweets. She believes food can be medicine when used appropriately and that a few changes now can equate to huge benefits later. Healthy food does not need to be flavorless and void of personality, which she aims to accomplish through her many recipes.

    Hi. I cannot have avocado but it is in so many paleo and AIP recipes. What could I use as an alternative? Thanks.
