Ingredients
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 8-12 strawberries (depending on size)
  • 3 shockingly healthy brownies
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • TOOLS
  • pie shell - ours was 8"
  • electric beater
  • metal bowl
  • cookie sheet
  • parchment paper
Instructions
  1. Refrigerate your coconut cream overnight (we like coconut cream so much we just keep a can or two in the fridge). It's helpful to also chill a metal bowl and beater blades.
  2. ***the next day***
  3. Cut a circle or parchment the size of the bottom of the pie plate. Put it at the bottom of the pie plate, and smoosh a few brownies into it, spreading evenly. Store in the freezer until you're ready for the next step.
  4. Open the can of coconut cream. Scoop out the cream into your metal bowl. If there is any liquid that isn't thick and creamy, discard it (or drink it, or use it in a smoothie).
  5. Add your maple syrup to the coconut cream and beat until well blended. If it's very thick, you can move right to the crust. If it's thinned out a lot, wrap the bowl, and put in the freezer for a half hour. Wait until the cream is thick enough that a strawberry could stand up in it, before using it.
  6. Melt your chocolate chips, and add your 1 TBSP of coconut oil to the mixture, stirring every so often until it's smooth. We like using a small slow cooker so we don't worry about burning it.
  7. While your chocolate is melting, wash and dry your strawberries, and slice them. We sliced each strawberry into thirds.
  8. Dip your strawberries, and transfer them to a parchment lined cookie sheet or plate. Put in the fridge or freezer to set.
  9. When your cream is nice and thick and blended, and your strawberries are set, you can assemble everything (no baking required!).
  10. Spread the coconut cream evenly over the brownie crust.
  11. Place your strawberries in the coconut cream. I like to start in the middle and work my way out, in a circular manner, but I'm sure you could make all kinds of patterns. It's helpful to think of how the pie will slice in your arrangement. Maybe arrange them in nice slice formations so you don't have to cut around any strawberries.
  12. When it's all assembled, return to the freezer to set for a half hour, for to the fridge for a few hours.
