Cool Mint Chocolate Pie

This cool and refreshing pie is the perfect summertime treat. Layered inside a graham cracker crust is a creamy chocolate mint pie filling, on top of that, a fluffy whipped topping. Both of these luscious layers created using thick, rich coconut milk. All topped off with a sprinkling of cacao nibs and drizzled with oozing hot fudge. Don’t get too freaked out about the fat content, a lot of it comes from coconut milk, which I’ve read is actually good for you. There is some hydrogenated fat in ready-made pie shells but you can always make your own. I tried making my own but never could get it right, and couldn’t find a recipe from another source that came close to ready-made. Once in a while won’t kill you.  : ) GO TO RECIPE >

    This looks and sounds so good! I didn’t know Jello Instant Pudding was vegan. And did you use a chocolate flavor? Wondering where all that chocolate comes from.

    Hi!
    First – I was wondering if you’ve ever seen Arsenic and Old Lace! I peeked at your Arsenic Lace cookies, and I was surprised to see a reference to Flowers In The Attic instead. If not, you must – I’d call it the first ‘black comedy’. Look it up.
    Secondly – I am really dying to make this for St. Patty’s, but I was wondering how to sub for the Jello instant pudding mix. Do you think mori-nu tofu with cocoa powder will have the same effect?

    I’ll have to check netflix for “Arsenic and Old Lace”. I don’t think leaving the jello out would work the same. Is there some reason you don’t want to use the jello? It is vegan.

    Oh, silly reasons – the natural foods store is a five minute walk away whereas the grocery store is a half an hour. :) Thanks for the info.

    I am staying away from soy…is there an alternative for the soy milk? what do you think of rice milk?

    Rice milk is ok. Almond milk is my new fave.

    i have a question about this pie? Is the Jello-pudding pie filling even vegan? From my understanding, Jello products are not vegan. Im curious to know….

    Doll, As far as I have researched they are vegan. I got my information from this website.
