Ingredients

Chocolate Crust:

Chocolate Silk Pie Filling:

Coconut Whipped Cream (optional):

Instructions

  • Place ½ cup of cashews in a glass bowl and pour boiling water over them until fully submerged. Let sit for one hour then drain.

To make the crust:

  • Very lightly grease a 9 or 10” deep-dish round pie plate. Set aside.
  • Place pecans in the container of your Vitamix blender. Blend until pecans are crumbly (about 15 seconds) starting on low speed increasing to high.
  • Add dates. Blend about 15 seconds, starting on low speed increasing to high, until mixture is crumbly.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until the mixture turns a dark chocolatey brown, slightly sticks together but is still crumbly. Stop blending before it gets too wet and sticky.
  • Dump the mixture into the pie plate/baking dish and press into the shape of the pan.
  • Refrigerate the crust while you make the filling.

To make the filling:

  • Melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave), until smooth. Set aside.
  • Put all the ingredients into the container of your Vitamix and blend, starting on low speed and increasing to high, until the mixture is completely smooth.
  • Pour mixture into prepared crust and store in the fridge until chilled. This gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits.

Coconut whipped cream:

  • Chill coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight and do not shake it.
  • Place the container of your standing mixer in the refrigerator to chill for at least 10 minutes (or longer).
  • Carefully opened the can of chilled whipped cream and transfer the top, thickened cream to the chilled mixing bowl. (save the liquid for a different use)!
  • Place whisk attachment on mixer and beat cream for about 30 seconds.
  • Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until creamy.
  • Taste and adjust sweetness if necessary.
  • Spread on top of pie immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and serve alongside the pie!
