Ingredients

No-Bake Crust:

Chocolate Filling:

  • 1 (15 oz.) can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons agar agar flakes
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate , roughly chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • Coconut whipped cream , for topping (optional)
  • Dark chocolate shavings , for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Line a pie pan with parchment paper. To prepare the crust, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to create a sticky batter. Transfer the mixture to the lined pie pan and use your hands to press the dough evenly up the sides of the pan, creating a crust about 1/4-inch thick. This dough is very sticky, so I recommend getting your hands wet with water to help press out the crust-- wet hands won't stick to the dough! Set the pan in the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
  • To prepare the chocolate filling, combine the coconut milk, agar flakes, vanilla, and coconut sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk to help everything dissolve. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then add in the baking chocolate and a pinch of salt and continue to whisk the mixture until it's smooth and has a rich chocolate color. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the freezer and pour the filling into the prepared crust. If you're impatient like me, place the finished pie back in the freezer to speed-up the cooling time. You don't want the whole pie to freeze, so I only keep it in the freezer for an hour and then I transfer it to the fridge for another hour before serving. If you're not in a hurry, place the pie in the fridge to set for 4-6 hours, or overnight.
  • Before serving, top the pie with coconut whipped cream and chocolate shavings. (You can make the chocolate shavings using a vegetable peeler!) Serve chilled, because the crust will get soft if left at room temperature too long.
