Creamy and Delicious Easy Chocolate Mousse Pie Image

To me, one of the world's most perfect flavor matches is chocolate and nuts.  

Give me a few chocolate covered almonds, or chocolate covered pecans, or a handful of cashews and chocolate chips mixed together ... and I'm in heaven.  When I need a little pick-me-up or am craving a sweet bite, chocolate and nuts is quite often what I grab.

I love that I get the sweetness of chocolate paired with the protein of nuts ... it fills me up while simultaneously satisfying my {ever-active} sweet tooth!

Well, want to know a great way to incorporate that perfect chocolate-and-nut flavor match into an easy dessert?  

With this easy Chocolate Mousse Pie, of course! ... made with Silk Cashewmilk and topped with a delicious sprinkling of sliced almonds and chopped cashews.

This pie creation was inspired by one of my favorite snacks ... cashews and chocolate chips.  It's creamy and delicious, with just the right touch of crunch from the sprinkling of nut and mini chocolate chip topping.

Speaking of creamy and delicious ... have you tried Silk Cashewmilk? Made with the special creaminess of cashews, new Silk Cashewmilk brings an irresistibly creamy hint-of-cashew-taste that is perfect over cereal, in recipes or straight from the carton.


Simply combine together some chocolate chips, milk, and sugar in a saucepan until melted and smooth.  Let the mixture cool briefly, and fold in non-dairy whipped topping.

It's a great dairy-free option that delivers up the perfect match between creamy, delicious taste and fewer calories.

And let me tell you, just like the irresistibly creamy texture of Silk Cashewmilk, the texture of this easy Chocolate Mousse Pie is indeed irresistibly creamy, too.

I mean, just look at the fluffiness of that chocolate filling.  Truly irresistible, don't you think?

About the only thing that can make this rich, fluffy, nutty-chocolate-y, irresistibly creamy Chocolate Mousse Pie better is ... to enjoy it alongside a big glass of creamy cashewmilk!
