Dairy-Free Cappuccino Almond Fudge Mud Pie

One of my favorite desserts has always been Mud Pie from Baskin-Robbins. I can't enjoy it any more, thanks to my dairy-intolerance, but this past Friday I decided to try and make a homemade dairy-free and gluten-free version for my birthday. It turned out really yummy!

Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free
Cappuccino Almond Fudge Mud Pie


For the Crust:

Using a food processor (I don't own one so I used my Vita-Mix) crush the Gluten-Free Joe-Joe's. Add 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and mix until combined. Using a spoon, press the cookie mixture into the center of a pie dish working it out from the middle and up the sides.  Place in the Freezer for 10 minutes.

For the Filling: 

Remove the crust from the freezer and add the Coconut Bliss. Depending on the size of your pie dish you may or may not need the full two pints. Spread the Coconut Bliss evenly over the crust, using a mix of both Cappuccino and Almond Fudge.  Place in Freezer for 10 minutes to refreeze while you make the Chocolate Topping. 

Note: Mocha Almond Fudge from SoDelicious would also be perfect for this Mud Pie!

For the Chocolate Topping: 

In a small bowl combine 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, and 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix until smooth. Drizzle over the top of the pie, or spread with a spatula if you prefer to cover the whole pie with chocolate.  

Note:You may need to reheat the chocolate topping if it starts to harden before you have a chance to drizzle it over the top of the pie.

Garnish with non-dairy whipped topping and chopped almonds. 

Note: I did this before placing the Mud Pie back in the freezer, but next time I'll probably add the whip cream just before serving. 

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

  4. Most of my family (children included:( ) are dairy intolerant. My husband adores! Coconut Bliss ice cream. I also buy SO Delicious chocolate ice cream which is a bit cheaper. I make several layers of cookie bits and marshmallows throughout to make it extra chocolate-y !! Yum!! I didn't know there was soy whip cream! Be still my heart....I must find some!! :) Happy Belated Birthday to you Jessica! Many blessings to your family in this New Year also!

    1. Thank you, Kim! I haven't tried the SO Delicious Chocolate yet, I will have to pick some up. Great idea to mix in cookie bits and marshmallows. That would help it go a little further too! I LOVE Coconut Bliss, but I do cringe every time I look at the price tag. God bless you and your family too!
