Instructions

Pie Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 175C (350F).
  • Grease/Spray an 18cm (7inch) spring form cake tin or pie dish (a 20cm/8inch tin would also work)
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a blender.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix until combined.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 20 minutes. This makes the dough easier to handle.
  • Using your fingers, press the dough evenly into the bottom and up the sides of your tin of choice.
  • Pierce the bottom of the pie crust several times before placing it in the oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely.
  • If using a spring form tin, remove the crust and place on a serving tray. This may be more difficult if using a pie tin and you may choose to construct and serve the pie from the tin.

Mousse

  • Remove the pips and scoop the avocado pulp into the food processor/blender.
  • Add the cocoa, maple syrup, vanilla, salt and milk.
  • Blend and blend until all the lumps and bumps are gone... then blend some more.
  • Transfer the mixture to a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Add the milk/cream and whisk for 2-3 minutes or until fluffy.

Cream

  • Scoop the thickened cream from the tin, discarding the watery liquid at the bottom.
  • Place cream in mixing bowl and beat using whisk attachment.
  • Add maple syrup and vanilla to taste and continue whisking until thick.

Construction

  • Spoon the mousse into the pie crust, smoothing off the surface.
  • Pile the whipped coconut cream onto the pie and spread over mousse.
  • Grate chocolate on top to decorate.
  • Keep refrigerated after serving (if there's any left!)
