I find that during the first week of the year, I see an awful lot of people (vegans specifically) eating more raw foods. Pictures of juices, salads and interesting dips fill my screen. I mean, you can just FEEL the healthiness of it all emanating from the computer. I totally support eating healthier in the New Year, especially after all of those holiday meals. But, I know firsthand, that after a couple of days you’re going to be craving some sweets and the comfort of warm food.

When those obstacles come up, that is where this raw chocolate mousse pie comes in. Not only is this recipe raw, it’s full of ingredients that will keep you full after indulging in a slice. Which is unlike most desserts with processed sugar and lots of processed carbohydrates. I’ve made a raw chocolate mousse-like pudding before, but the undertone of avocado was a little strong for those who aren’t used to the idea. I made sure to make this dessert suitable for healthy vegans and not-so-healthy omnivores alike. The more raw desserts that I make, the more delicious they turn out and this was no different. To put it bluntly, I’m in love! 😀

One of the things I love most about this dessert is that there is the perfect amount of crust, I am a huge fan of crust so it’s a little thicker than recipes that I’ve made in the past. Raw desserts sometimes take a lot of time to make, but with a little planning ahead, this pie comes together in no time!

Raw Chocolate Mousse Pie

Yield: 8 - 10 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

This luscious, raw chocolate mousse pie is made with whole foods and is so rich in flavor. You'd never guess this was a healthy alternative to your standard pie!



  • 2 cups Raw Almonds
  • 6 Large Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

Chocolate Mousse Filling

  • 3 cups Raw Cashews, Soaked for 3 hours and drained
  • 1/2 cup Avocado
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 Large Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 3/4 cup Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt

Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1/4 cup Cacao Powder
  • 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Warmed Coconut Oil


  1. Place almonds, dates and vanilla extract into a food processor and process until the "dough" forms a large clump or ball. You may need to scrape some mix off of the sides a couple of times to get the size of the almonds more consistent.
  2. Pack the dough roughly 3/8" thick, into a 9" pie pan or spring form pan, and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime, work on the chocolate mousse filling.
  3. Using a food processor or high-speed blender puree the raw cashews with the water, maple syrup, avocado and lemon juice until it is very smooth. Make sure to keep tabs on how warm the appliance is getting, if you need to, pause so that it can cool down so that it does not inadvertently warm your mixture. Once smooth add in dates, coconut oil, cacao powder and sea salt, process until it is very smooth.
  4. The mousse mixture will be thick, scoop it into the near-frozen pie crust. Smooth the filling until it is even and without bubbles. Place the pie into the freezer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours for it to set.
  5. While the pie is in the last stages of cooling, make your chocolate drizzle by stirring the remaining cacao powder, maple syrup and warmed coconut oil in a small cup. It may take 1 or 2 minutes for you to stir it completely smooth, once it is mixed cut out a slice of pie and drizzle it all over!

The texture turns out so rich and creamy, but not too heavy. This chocolate pie is an absolute dream to eat.

You better believe that I had no problem eating that slice fairly quickly after I took pictures of it. Lucky for you all, that I was able to restrain myself for so long!

    • Eff, I figured out the approximate nutrition facts last night and forgot to bring them home. But, I do remember that with 16 servings, each slice is roughly 400 calories. Most of the calories come from the nuts used and when you compare the nutrition facts to say, a normal cheesecake, the difference in nutrients is astronomical!

      • Scratch that, the calories are closer to 328 a serving!

  1. oh my, this looks divine. i love chocolate. i’ve been wanting to try a raw baked good one of these days… bookmarked!

    • This one is pretty easy to make too! Let me know when you make it and what you think. 🙂

  2. This looks amazing! I love raw pies, and this looks so yummy 🙂 I’m going to save this for a special occasion – or do you think it would store well in the freezer? I may try a smaller “batch” because my husband isn’t a fan of chocolate but I really want to give it a try 🙂

    • This would store perfectly in the freezer! That’s where mine is right now, as long as you keep it covered well it should last quite some time. All you’ll need to do is take it out an hour or two before you want to eat it and it will be the perfect consistency. 🙂

    • Right? I almost feel like I am forced to be more creative when it comes to making raw desserts. I have another great recipe that I’ll be posting soon, too!

      • I’m not experienced in raw-desserts, you know. I’ve only made raw banana-flax pudding and raw truffles made of macadamia nuts, poppy seed and grounded flaxseed.
        I’m sorry for my English, I’mn still studying 😀

  3. I had to tell you how much I’m in love with this recipe. I’ve made it several times, and most recently for my family for Thanksgiving and it’s such a big hit! I did have trouble at first with a crumbly crust, but with the addition of a flax egg (just ground flax seed+water) the crust holds together beautifully. Thanks for this gem!

    • That is SO awesome to hear! This dessert was one of my favorite (of the raw variety), and I’m super glad to find out that you and your loved ones have enjoyed it! 😀

  4. O.M.G. This was amazing! I shared it with my FB fans accompanied with photos and pinned it. Thanks so much! Everyone loved it, especially my two year old.

    • Yay! That’s fantastic! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it. 🙂

    • That’s fantastic! So glad that you enjoyed it. 🙂
