Keto Chocolate Silk Pie
I didn't set out to make a keto chocolate silk pie. I set out to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, BUT I ran out of almond flour AFTER I made the crust. Apparently, I miscalculated how much almond flour I needed with all the desserts I was making. And given that it was the night before Thanksgiving, I was NOT about to brave the stores.
Instead, I searched Pinterest and found a recipe from ruled.me (found here) and used part of it. I did not use their crust because 1) I had already made one and 2) I wanted this to be more fluffy in the crust layer which my recipe always is. I'm sure their crust is amazing too!
Anyway, I took their filling recipe, added a few minor things and WOILA - a perfect keto Thanksgiving pie!
Since my pie crust is always fluffier and doesn't stay flat like most (I like it that way), I had less room for the filling which means I had leftover filling to make chocolate mousse cups for an additional treat! BONUS!
I definitely got a good forearm working out mixing and folding - but it was SO WORTH IT!
- 1 Keto Pie Crust
- 16 ounces cream cheese (room temperature is best)
- 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons sour cream
- 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup granulated erythritol
- 2 drops liquid stevia
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream (for whipped cream)
- 2 teaspoons erythritol (for whipped cream)
- 1/8 teaspoon almond extract (for whipped cream)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for whipped cream)
- Prepare pie crust as instructed and let cool.
- In a large bowl, combine room temperature sour cream, butter, sour cream, vanilla, 1/2 cup erythritol and cocoa powder. Mix well.
- Blend with hand mixer until fluffy. If the cream cheese was too cold and it doesn't become fluffy. Add the 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Otherwise skip it.
- In a separate bowl, mix together heavy whipping cream, 2 teaspoons erythritol, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon almond extract.
- Beat on high with a hand mixer until peaks form.
- Fold whipping cream into chocolate mixture 1/3 at a time. Expect to get a good forearm workout - but stick with it!
- Add to pie crust! I had some extra, so I made 2 small chocolate mousse cups.
