Tastes Like Love

Is there any dessert more romantic than chocolate covered strawberries? So juicy and decadent! Deliciously sweet and tart.

This pie has the elegance and romance of chocolate and strawberries presented on a thick, chewy cookie-like crust. And it’s drizzled in even more rich creamy ganache. So much to love!

And those gorgeous strawberries have me all heart eyes! I was SO excited strawberries were on sale at Aldi this week. (If you don’t shop at Aldi, you’re missing out! It’s great!)

The best part about having dessert? When it’s quick & EASY to make. This pie is so simple to make!

The hands-on time is only about 10 minutes and you’ve got a luscious dessert to impress your man 😉 (or to make for yourself, because us women need to practice more self-love. AmIright?)

Keep Your Pantry Stocked

Just 7 simple ingredients (plus salt and water) are all you need to make this pie.

If you’re livin’ the Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free Life, you probably already have these items on hand:

  • almond flour
  • dairy-free dark chocolate (such as Enjoy Life or Aldi brand)
  • coconut milk
  • strawberries
  • coconut oil
  • sweetener of choice

If you don’t already have them, time to hop on Amazon and stock your pantry! These are key “Pretty Pie” ingredients I *never* go without.

How to Make this Pie Low Carb

I used regular sweeteners for this pie, but you can EASILY swap them out for sugar-free alternatives.

  • For the chocolate, simply switch to monkfruit or stevia sweetened dark chocolate, such as Lakanto or Lily’s brand.
  • For the maple syrup, simply use an equal amount of coconut milk with about 25 stevia drops to sweeten.

And there ‘ya have it. A decadent dessert with absolutely zero added sugar. I love me some low-carb goodness.

Ingredients

Crust

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 13.6 oz can Thai Kitchen coconut milk - solid cream only
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped  - 6 oz (use Lily's for sugar-free)
  • 1 1/2 Tbs maple syrup - (or coconut milk + stevia) to taste

Strawberries 

  • 1 cup strawberry slices - for pie filling
  • 1/3 cup strawberries - for decoration

Instructions

To make the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 375. Mix almond flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt coconut oil in a glass bowl. Whisk in maple syrup, flax and water. Let stand for 2 minutes to thicken.
  • Pour wet over dry and mix well.
  • Press into 7" springform pan (or small pie plate) lined with parchment. (see notes)
  • Bake for approximately 12 min, until lightly golden. Set aside to cool completely. 

To make the chocolate ganache:

  • Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • {Use a can of coconut milk that has been refrigerated overnight} Scoop out the solid white cream into a glass cup or small saucepan.
  • Heat milk to a simmer (just to a gentle bubble) and pour over chocolate. Do not stir yet. Cover and let the mixture sit undisturbed for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate. Then mix and stir in sweetener to taste.

To assemble:

  • Pour 1/3 of the chocolate over crust.
  • Decorate with a layer of strawberry slices. Pour over all remaining chocolate (except 2-3 Tbs for drizzling). Add another layer of strawberries.
  • Chill for 1-2 hours to set. Slice and drizzle with remaining chocolate or add whipped coconut cream. Enjoy!

Notes

What I used:
I used a small 7" springform/cheesecake pan. For a standard size pan (9") I would increase the filling by 50-100% so the pie is not flat.
Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk
Almond Flour
85% Dark Chocolate from Aldi
Nutiva Coconut Oil
To store: keep refrigerated for about 3-5 days. Do not freeze or the strawberries will turn mushy when thawed.
