Raspberry chocolate pie is one of my favorite dessert recipes of all time. It is one of those awesome no-bake summer recipes that is the perfect blend of rich and refreshing.
No-Bake Chocolate Almond Crust
The crust for this pie is the most labor intensive part of this recipe. And it takes a whopping five minutes to make! It’s a crumb mixture of ground almonds, coconut oil, cocoa, and honey. Usually, I press it into a pie pan. Or I sometimes make mini pies and press the crust into smaller dishes.
It’s a really versatile little crust recipe and could be used for all sorts of other desserts. You could skip the pressing part altogether and just crumble it in the bottom of a dish. It would be great added to a trifle layered with fruits and nuts and whipped cream. Not familiar with trifle? Here’s one.
Raspberry Chocolate Pie: A Quick and Easy No-Bake Dessert
Fresh fruit combined with protein-packed almonds, healthy-fat coconut oil, decadent cocoa, and lightness from whipped cream. It’s a combo that can’t be beat.
Once the crust is made for this pie, it’s simply a matter of filling the crust with fresh raspberries and topping it with whipped cream. Or coconut cream, if you prefer. I love the chocolate-raspberry-cream combination, but if you have a surplus of another fruit, give it a try!
I like to have a good stash of healthy no-bake dessert recipes on hand for when I need a quick dessert. And bonus: I don’t have to heat up the house with the oven to make them. This post lists some of our favorite healthy summertime dessert recipes, some of which are no-bake.
The other advantage to this recipe is that children can easily help make it since there is no slicing or baking required and having children help prepare food makes them much more likely to eat and enjoy it.
