Low Carb Dream Pie with Coconut Crust

When I first made the sugar free chocolate mousse recipe posted here, I knew it would make a great pie filling. I thought about the different types of crusts. Originally, I was thinking to use a chocolate crumb crust, but decided against having so much chocolate in the pie. While looking at recipes for crust made with coconut flour, I got the idea to just make a crust out of unsweetened coconut.

Using the concept of your typical crumb crust, I added a bit of stevia and melted butter to about 2 cups of flaked coconut. I pressed the mixture into a sprayed pie plate and baked until the coconut was toasted a golden brown.

The amount of mousse needed for the pie was about one serving less than double the recipe. I just put what didn’t fit in the pie crust into a single serving dish. The important thing to remember when making the mousse is to use fine powdered erythritol. The granular kind as well as the stevia blends can make the mousse crunchy. I’ve tried using a coffee grinder to powder granular erythritol, but it still ends up being a little crunchy in this type of recipe. The product I use that gets the best results is Sensato powdered erythritol which I purchase here. If anyone has a secret to making powdered erythritol at home, please post the information in the comments.
