Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse Cake

Maggie Ney, ND

A good friend brought this pie over for a potluck dinner several years ago. It was so flavorful and rich, no one could believe it was raw, vegan, and organic.  My friend finally gave me the recipe when I saw her again at another potluck (and after this amazing pie got the same incredible response!). The first chance I had, I made it for a small dinner party and before long I was writing the recipe out for my friends, too.

Raw Chocolate Mousse Pie Crust

  • 2 cups almonds (overnight soak is optional)
  • 1/3 maple syrup

Combine almonds and maple syrup in a food processor and mix until thoroughly

blended. Press into a pie pan and place in the freezer overnight.


  • 5 coconuts (flesh only)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups macadamia nuts
  • 3 tablespoons carob powder
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 8 dates, pitted
  • ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract (or ½ of a fresh vanilla bean)
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut butter

Blend until smooth. Pour into pie crust and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
