This low carb chocolate pie recipe does not disappoint!! You could even top off with a little homemade whipped cream for chocolate cream pie. This is divine.
We love chocolate. I’ve made dark chocolate a regular part of my eating plan. I get Lily’s dark chocolate chips which are stevia sweetened. Any time I get a craving for something sweet, a small handful will curb that craving almost immediately.
And I don’t feel guilty because it’s both low carb AND dark chocolate, which is good for me! Man, this low carb eating is tough…. NOT! Ha! (And no, I was not paid to talk about those chocolate chips. I have a serious love affair with them.)
But with the holidays coming up, We are going to need more than a few chocolate chips. When everybody else is chowing down on high-carb pies, cakes and cookies, We need to have something there that won’t destroy our blood sugars. .
Because for me, making the switch to low carb eating includes still wanting to feel normal at family functions. So I did a pie crust recipe recently and had to find something to fill it with.
Aside from the crust having a slightly different texture than regular pie crust, I would never know that there was anything different about this pie. The filling is delicious and would be perfect served with some low carb whipped cream. I mean, who wouldn’t love chocolate cream pie????
Can you use dutch cocoa powder?
You can also use either type of cocoa powder for this recipe. If you want extra rich you can go with dutch cocoa powder.
HOW MANY NET CARBS PER Slice on our Chocolate Pie
5 Net Carb per slice of this pie. This is if you slice the pie into 16 slices.
Note: The Net Carbs per serving is by subtracting the sugar alcohol erythritol.
My family does subtract the sugar alcohols and I’ll continue to provide that sugar alcohol grams above the nutrition card below and you can decide for yourself if you want to follow that.
If you are new to this Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and are unsure what we are talking about please feel free to read up more on Net Carbs and why people do or don’t subtract sugar alcohols.

Low Carb Chocolate Pie
- 1 batch low carb pie crust (prepared and baked)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or cornstarch if you need something in a pinch)
- 4 large egg yolks , beaten with a fork
- 1 cup erythritol (see notes below)
- 1 teaspoon pure liquid stevia
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups full-fat canned coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Over high heat and in a medium pot, combine the cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, egg yolks, sweetener, salt and vanilla using a whisk. The mixture will get clumpy and crumbly.
- Quickly stir in about an 1/8 of a cup coconut milk, whisking the entire time. Add more milk, a little at a time, whisking constantly until you have incorporated all of the coconut milk. Take your time with this because you need the mixture in the pot to warm up between milk additions and you want the filling to be as smooth as possible for your pie.
- By the time you finish adding the milk, you'll notice the filling starting to thicken. Continue to whisk, making sure to scrap the bottom of the pot to avoid burning.
- Once the filling has thickened, remove from heat and pour the filling into your pie crust.
- Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour. If you will be leaving it in the fridge for longer then that before eating, make sure to cover it with plastic wrap or you will end up with spots on the top of the pie that look "dried out". If you get those, they are fine. There's nothing wrong with your pie. It's nothing a little whipped cream can't cover up!
