Chocolate cream pies are one of those desserts that everyone loves. Even if you don’t have a huge sweet tooth, you’ll be licking your fingers after eating this silky keto chocolate pie. The filling resembles a chocolate mousse that is fluffy and super creamy. There are three separate tasks that are required to make this keto pie, but the extra effort is totally worth it. I especially love that this recipe is no-bake! (other than the crust) So I love to assemble it and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to allow it to “set.”

Keto Chocolate Pie Ingredients:

  • Pecans, butter, and Besti Monkfruit Allulose Blend Crystalized sweetener: This makes a deliciously crunchy keto crust. The pecans add those healthy omegas. Check out other keto nut crust options below.
  • Heavy whipping cream, cocoa powder, cream cheese: This makes your luscious mousse filling for your chocolate pie.
  • Besti Monk fruit Allulose Blend Powdered Sweetener: This sweetener is used in the homemade keto whipped cream, AND in the sugar-free chocolate pie filling. Check out other sugar-free sweeteners you can use below.
  • Sugar-free Lily’s Chocolate Chips: This is melted and added to your cream cheese mixture for an added chocolate boost! Lily’s chocolate chips, sweetened with stevia, are fantastic for the keto diet.

Steps for how to make keto chocolate pie:

Step 1: Grease a deep dish 9” pie plate. Crush pecans then add butter and sweetener. You can use a food processor, chopper, or blender to crush the pecans. Mix well.

Step 2: Press your crust into the bottom of your pie dish and up the sides a bit. Bake for 10 min then remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Step 3:  While it is baking, add the 3 cups heavy whipping cream and sweetener to a bowl and beat for approx. 5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Your whipped cream should have doubled in size.

Tip: Make sure the bowl and any utensils you use are completely dry. If the bowl is fresh out of the dishwasher and still warm, you’ll want to chill it in the fridge before using it. Otherwise, it can interfere with the heavy whipping cream fluffing into stiff peaks.

Step 4: Add softened cream cheese, cocoa powder, sweetener, and beat until combined. In another small microwave-proof bowl, add the sugar-free chocolate chips and butter. Microwave until completely melted. Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture. Do not overcook the chocolate chips.

Step 5: Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture. Then fold in 3 cups of the homemade whipped cream until just combined.

Step 6: Spoon your chocolate mousse filling into the pie crust.

Step7: Top your finished chocolate cream pie with the remaining homemade whipped cream and garnish with sugar-free chocolate shavings. A Lily’s sugar-free chocolate bar works great. This step is optional, but it really makes the pie look so decadent.

Making your keto chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse is pure heaven. Creamy, chocolatey, rich but still light. Who could hate that? If you love it as much as me and don’t want to make an entire pie to enjoy it, check out my keto chocolate mousse recipe! Cream cheese, butter, and heavy cream are high in fat, making it the perfect keto-friendly dessert. All you need to do is substitute the sugar for a sugar-free sweetener.

For this keto chocolate cream pie recipe, I used Besti Monk fruit Allulose Blend Powdered Sweetener, which I think has the least after-taste. If you want to use other sweeteners, you can use Swerve Confectioners, and Lakanto Monk Fruit Powdered, both have a 1:1 ratio with the sweetener I use.

Keto chocolate pie pecan crust

This crust mimics your traditional graham cracker crust but is the perfect keto version. You don’t want to leave it out! Baking it ahead of time allows the crust to become nice and crunchy. Pecans are high in omegas and good fats, which is what we want on the keto diet.

If you want to use a DIFFERENT nut to make your crust, you can, but it will slightly change the total net carbs per serving.

Other nuts that will work for your pie crust are:

  • walnuts
  • brazil nuts
  • macadamia
  • hazelnuts

Keto chocolate pie tips

Making keto chocolate mousse is NOT difficult; just make sure you don’t take shortcuts and follow each step accordingly.

  1. As with most pie recipes, prepping your ingredients ahead of time will ensure the best results.
  2. Allow your pecan crust to cool completely! This will ensure your chocolate pie mousse does not melt.
  3. If you want a super-thick crust, double your crust ingredients!
  4. Make sure the heavy whipping cream is very cold, and the bowl and utensils used to make the homemade whipped cream are dry. If the bowl is warm or if the heavy whipping cream has set out, it might not form stiff peaks. 
  5. Use a rubber spatula to “fold” in your whipped cream. Folding whipped cream is a technique used in baking, especially with mousses. It maintains a light and airy batter.
  6. Make sure to chill your pie for at least an hour before serving.

Can you freeze your keto chocolate mousse pie?

Yes! A mousse pie should last up to 2 months in the freezer. Make sure to wrap it well with plastic wrap. I would also place the entire wrapped pie in a freezer-safe container to make sure it does not experience freezer burn.

Allow your pie to defrost in the fridge overnight for the best results!

Crust Ingredients

Chocolate Filling Ingredients:


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease a deep dish 9” pie plate.
  • Crush pecans, then add the butter and sweetener and mix well.
  • Press crust into the bottom and slightly up the sides of a pie plate.
  • Bake for 10 min then remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • While your crust is baking, add 3 cups heavy whipping cream and sweetener to a bowl and beat for approx. five minutes or until stiff peaks form, and it has doubled in size.
  • In another bowl, add softened cream cheese, cocoa powder, sweetener, and beat until combined.
  • In a small glass bowl, add your sugar-free chips, and butter. Microwave for 25 seconds, then stir. Microwave again for 10-15 seconds and stir. The chocolate mixture should completely melt and begin to smooth as you stir. If not, you can microwave for another 5 seconds but do not over-heat as the chocolate will seize.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture and stir.
  • Add 3 cups of the homemade whipped cream to the bowl and FOLD the whipped cream gently into the mixture until just combined.
  • Spoon chocolate filling into your pecan pie crust.
  • Top with the remaining homemade whipped cream and level it out.
  • Garnish with shaved chocolate shavings from any sugar-free chocolate bar. (optional)
  • Freeze for at least an hour before cutting.



*If you want to use another sweetener, I recommend Swerve Confectioners or Lakanto Monk Fruit Powdered; both have a 1:1 ratio with the sweetener I use.
Nutritional Information: The sugar alcohols and fiber from the sweetener and sugar-free chocolate chips are not included in the nutritional information since most subtract to calculate net carbs.

  1. Hi! I really want to try this recipe but my husband is allergic to pecans , would the crust still work with regular peanuts instead ? Thanks !

    Need your help please. I would like to make this the day before. At what point can it be frozen? Would you freeze without whipped topping? Would it be ok to freeze overnight? Need your suggestions……….. thank you…

    1. It would be fine to freeze overnight without the whipped topping. I would then let it thaw a bit before adding the whipped topping and serving.

    Tried this recipe and was proud to serve it for my son’s Birthday. I have a comment that might help in making this recipe. When you have the chocolate portion done, take the whipped cream and put the bowl & cream on a scale. Add one cup (8 oz) into the chocolate mixture and whip with a hand mixer. That gives you a negative reading on the scale, but you don’t have to measure it that way. I know – more dishes, but the mixer does help. After you have the chocolate mixture smoothed out as shown in the author’s video, then add another 8 oz (take bowl off, turn off scale – it returns to 0). Fold it in leaving the fluffy part of the whipped cream. Eyeball how much you’ll need for the topping and either add the rest to the top, add more to the filling, or make some small mousse cups with some of the remaining filling and the rest of whipped cream.
    Thanks for the delicious and decadent dessert!

  4. Trying this for the first time. Can you clarify, is this supposed to remain frozen or do you just freeze it initially to set and then keep in the fridge?

    1. I keep it in the freezer and let it thaw a little before serving. Just seems to keep and serve better in the freezer.

    Love, love, love this recipe! I usually have problems making low carb desserts, they never turn out like the recipe. And my crust did not make the correct amount for this pie, but I think that was really my fault. I made this for my daughter and myself because we are both watching our carb count. I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I just made this tonight because i was craving for something sweet. This is by far, my favorite dessert recipe from you, Ms Kasey! Couldn’t believe how fudgy this is!
    I ran out of swerve confectioners so i did 1 cup and 1/2 cup or allulose for the filling. It came out amazing!
    Thank you so much!

    1. Fria, thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

    If I could give this 10 stars- I would. This pie is good time after time!!! The only thing I’ve changed is I double the crust- all those yummy pecans!! AND I’ve made other Keto pies with yukky crusts- so I’m using YOUR crust with other fillings like keto p-nut butter, etc! Thank YOU for a go-to pie that’s good for us & the best in flavor!!!👍👏🤣

    1. Awwww….thank you very much! I am sooo glad that you love it so much! Blessings to you for taking the time to comment and rate the recipe.

    Is the carb count per serving or for the whole pie?

    So thankful for your coconut flour recipes!! Thank you for sharing!!

    1. It is per serving. I’m so glad you enjoy my recipes! Thanks for taking the time to comment and rate the recipe.

  9. 5 stars
    Second time making this pie and it is delicious. Was wondering if you recommend salted or unsalted butter?

  10. This pie is so good! Makes a large pie so I cut it in 14 pieces and so satisfying. One of my number one desserts on my low carb diet. Thanks for sharing! 👍👍

  11. I am wanting to make this but have a question about carb count. Is there an estimate on net carbs per piece if I were to use the sweeteners recommended?

    1. Hey Doris, the nutrition information on the recipe card gives this. A serving of the pie would have 5 net carbs. Hope you love it!

    It’s so hard yummy keto recipes that my whole family can enjoy, but I made this for my family yesterday morning and everyone loved them! My family had eaten all of it by the time I went for seconds, which never happens when I bake keto! I’m going to make it again today or tomorrow. These are definitely a new family favorite. Thank you!
