Frozen Mint Chip Pie

Todays recipe, a Frozen Mint Chip Pie, is one that I created for the So Delicious “Coolest Creamiest Dairy Free Recipe Showdown”. I’m putting this recipe up against 20 other gluten free / dairy free food bloggers, all of whom I’m sure will have some stellar dairy free desserts to share.

This is actually my first recipe contest. In all the years that I’ve been baking and cooking, I’ve never entered a recipe into a contest. I’m not really sure why, since I’m super competitive.

I really feel like I’ve brought my A-game with this frozen mint chip pie. It’s a very simple, no-bake dessert but it is completely satisfying. Sometimes simple is better and that’s exactly what this frozen mint chip pie is. It calls for just a few ingredients. If you’re a chocolate mint fan, you’re going to love this.

My dad is a big mint fan. Last year, I made him some Andes Mint Chip Ice Cream for Father’s Day so this year I made him this frozen mint chip pie. It was a hit. I mean really, you can’t go wrong with a chocolate cookie crust, coconut milk based mint chip “ice cream” and a chocolate ganache.

When I made this for my dad, I made it in a 9-inch spring-form pan. This time, I made it in an 11 inch tart pan which is what’s pictured. You can make it in either but I preferred the thicker pie in the 9-inch pan.

The beauty of this is the So Delicious Mint Chip “ice cream”. It has a coconut milk base and is a totally and delicously acceptable replacement for dairy based mint chip ice cream. It’s great for my lactose intolerant daughter who also loves mint everything.

Be sure to check out my Vegan Avocado Ice Cream or my Dairy Free Freezer Cake (which both also happen to feature So Delicious products), or my Flourless Chocolate Mint Brownies OR Mint Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding if you’re craving an extra serving of mint. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 10.5 oz package gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies about 21 cookies or 2 - 2 1/4 C crumbs
  • 1/4 C palm shortening melted
  • 2 pints So Delicious Mint Chip non-dairy frozen dessert
  • 1 10 oz. bag dairy free chocolate chips about 1 1/2 C
  • 3/4 C full-fat coconut milk

Instructions

  • Place the chocolate sandwich cookies in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the cookies become fine crumbs. Mix the crumbs with the melted shortening until all the crumbs are moistened.
  • Press the crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan (or 11-inch tart pan) making sure it evenly coats the bottom of the pan.
  • Freeze the crust for 15 minutes (or longer) while the mint chip non-dairy frozen dessert sits out at room temperature. It may take 20+ minutes to become soft enough to scoop and spread.
  • When the mint chip has softened, scoop it onto the crust and use a wooden spoon or off-set spatula to spread it evenly over the bottom. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  • When the mint chip base has re-frozen, prepare the ganache by adding the chocolate chips and coconut milk to a microwave safe bowl. Melt at 50% power for 60 seconds. Stir the chocolate really well then heat again at 50% power for 30 seconds. Continue to heat at 50% power for 15 seconds (stirring after each time) until the chocolate is melted.
  • Pour the ganache evenly over the mint chip base. Freeze until ready to serve.
  • Before serving, let the mint chip pie sit at room temperature for 10-20 minutes before slicing.

    Hi Lauren,
    It’s a chocolate ganache made with dairy free chocolate chips and coconut milk – the directions for it are in the recipe 🙂

    What is the chocolate topping on the top of the mint ice cream?
