Vegan Gluten Free Cappuccino Mud Pie

Going back to the topic of Childhood Food Lovin’ my most favorite dessert of all time {my nana cam vouch for this} is the basic Mud Pie.

The story goes something like this…..

I was a Chatty Cathy my whole life and I am flipping my hair right now and admitting I still am.  Its kind of hard to see how much I like to talk when all you read is my text :| but I do love it and I have since I was able to talk.  I would talk through the prep of dinner, all through dinner and finally when the Ice Cream Pie was placed in front of me I would shut right up and chase my crust around the pool of ice cream on my little dessert plate.

I always requested Mud Pie for my birthday and my mom and I would crush the thin chocolate wafers for the crust together and then shop for the best Baskin Robins Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream for the filling.  I licked, nibbled and licked some more during the process of making “MY” Mud Pie.

Ahhhh then food allergies popped into my life and my mud pie days were over.

While licking some Cappuccino flavored Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss the other night, my sister and I decided this tasted just like the filling of our once favorite chilly pie.

What we did next was glorious.  We brain stormed, we laughed and we found the perfect, most simple Vegan, Gluten Free Cappuccino Mud Pie recipe ever!

Vegan Gluten Free Cappuccino Mud Pie:

Crust:

15 gluten free, vegan chocolate cookies {we used our Chocolate Cookies without the icing from B.Belles Bakery}

4 tbsp coconut oil {melted}

Filling:

1 container cappuccino Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss

Chocolate Topping:

3 tbsp melted coconut oil

4 tbsp cocoa powder

3 tbsp maple syrup

To Make Cappuccino Mud Pie: Remove the ice cream container from the freezer and allow to thaw for 20 minutes.

Crush Dark Chocolate Cookies in a Food Processor into a fine crumb.

Add in melted coconut oil.  Allow processor to mix well.

Press the crust into a pie dish starting in the middle and working the crust out and up the sides.

Place the crust in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Remove the crust and add the Coconut Bliss in spreading the ice cream with a hot spoon to fill the crust evenly.

Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together either in the microwave for 30 seconds or on the stove.  Mix in the cocoa and make a nice smooth chocolate sauce.  Drizzle over the top of the pie and use a spatula to spread it evenly.

Place the pie back in the freezer for at least 1 hour before serving.

Can you say “YUM”!  Holy cow, this was freaking amazing!

As you can guess, I ate my Mud Pie in peace an quietness just like the good ol days ;)

Happy Friday my friend!

What was your favorite dessert growing up?

To Your Glam Life,

xxoo

    Loved mud pies growing, but our all time favorite childhood dessert was the classic chocolate chip cookie cake :)

    You’ve outdone yourself this time girl!! This looks AMAZING and DELICIOUS!!

    My childhood fave dessert was my grandma’s no-bake cherry cheesecake. It was sooo good. Maybe you can come up with a vegan version of it for me?!?? ;-)

    Delicious! Seriously – drooling over those pictures. I loved strawberry shortcake and banana pudding growing up. I didn’t like chocolate as a kid, but I’m making up for it now. :)

    Mmm, this looks SO good – I love Luna + Larry :)

    My favorite dessert was similar – my mom made this single serving dessert – thin chocolate cookies stacked with whip creme between each, and cooled in the fridge. YUM.

    Happy Weekend!

    That looks amazing! I’ve seen some Coconut Bliss frozen pies in my day, but I don’t think I’ve been tempted to lick my screen before!

    Thanks so much for sharing your amazing creation!

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t think I’ve ever had a mud pie. I would definitely try this one and growing up my dad use to make flans for family parties and they were amazing :D

    This looks amazing, Kris! My favorite desserts as a kid were probably my grandma’s minced meat pie (doesn’t contain meat!), my moms pies – apple, strawberry rhubarb, blueberry, peach… she made the BEST pie. Oh, and nanaimo bars that my dad made. Amazing!
