Keto Silk Pie Ingredients
For this silk pie, we divided the ingredients between the three main components: oreo crust, chocolate cream cheese filling, and sugar-free whipped cream.
- The oreo crust is made with almond flour, cocoa powder, butter, and sweetener. This crust makes the pie extra chocolatey. A coconut flour crust is also amazing for this pie.
- This filling requires no baking, no egg yolks, and no powders. It’s all made from natural ingredients such as cream cheese, whipping cream, dark chocolate, and a low carb sweetener. I’d eat this chocolate filling on its own. You can do that too!
- For the homemade sugar-free whipped cream, you’ll need whipping cream, a powdered sweetener of choice and vanilla extract. It’s essential to use powdered sweetener to get a nice and smooth whipped cream.
How To Make Keto Silk Pie
Remember I’m a huge fan of extremely easy to make recipes. Well, this recipe it’s a breeze to make, and only the crust requires a bit more work. If you have basic cooking skills and know to use a blender or a mixer, you can make this pie. In the end, it’s totally worth it.
A food processor makes this whole process a lot easier.
- Simply add all the dry ingredients and butter, pulse for a few seconds until everything is well incorporated. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Pulse, pulse, pulse, and a few seconds later, this delicious pie crust is ready.
- Transfer to a greased 9-inch pie pan. Blind bake the crust until fully cooked. It’s important to cool the crust before adding the filling.
- Next, make the sugar-free chocolate cream cheese mousse. You can find detailed steps in the recipe card below.
- In fact, making the chocolate filling is quite simple but very delicious. Simply mix all the ingredients until light and fluffy.
- I love to whip up homemade whipped cream because it’s insanely easy to make and we prefer it over the sugary varieties found in stores.
- It’s time to assemble the pie. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving. Top each pie slice with a healthy dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
Devour with your friends and family. That’s it!

Got Keto French Silk Pie Leftovers?
This low carb silk pie is best stored in the refrigerator. It should last for about 3-4 days. You want to keep the chocolate filling firm, and for that, you need a low temperature.
Keto Silk Pie is excellent to make ahead of time since the filling needs at least 6 hours to set.

So good! Creamy & decadent! Chocolaty goodness! So much to love!
Thank you so much! I’m so happy you liked the recipe!!
What kind of erythritol sweetner Do you use? Granular or powdered?
I used granular erythritol, but for the chocolate filling, you can use powdered sweetener.
Can use or should use powder? 🙂
Yes, a powdered sweetener is the best choice.
This pie looks really good. I’m going to make it for the holidays. In the ingredients, the link to Amazon for the erythritol is for confectioners Swerve. Then, for the topping, it’s “powdered erythritol”. So my question is, what is the difference? Or did you mean to link the granular Swerve for the “erythritol” link? Please advise.
Yes, it works with both, the Amazon link is wrong. You need to powder the erythritol for the topping so it can easily dissolve into the whipping cream.
So use swerve confectioners?
Yes, or any of your favorite low carb powdered sweetener is great to make this keto chocolate silk pie!
Best keto chocolate pie ever. Had so many compliments during Thanksgiving. Thank you. Definitely making this again and again.
This makes me so happy!! I’m thrilled this pie was a success for you! Thank you so much 🙂
The crust was very nice and would work for many other pies. Had to use a stand mixer for the filling which was very thick, then finally put most of a stick of room temp butter in to get the consistency right. French silk pie traditionally contains quite a bit of butter, that is what gives it the silky texture for which it is named. Cream cheese is not lower in carbs than butter so I think replacing most of the cream cheese with room temp butter would be a better idea and improve the flavor/consistency to be more like french silk. Worked for us!
My filling was also very thick. Thought I did something wrong. Thinned it with additional HWC. I will try your butter tip next time. The taste was delicious, we all love chocolate and this was thumbs up from the family.
Hi. Can I use Bakers Chocolate for the dark chocolate?
I’d say you can, but I haven’t tried it.
Thanks so much for the recipe I made it for Christmas and my dad who is not doing keto love it he still talks about it so I am going to make one for him for Father’s day.
This recipe is so decedent, it will not only have your friends second guessing it’s keto-friendliness, but you’ll be double checking yourself. You can whip this up so quickly. It’s so amazingly rich you’ll find yourself in a heavenly chocolate coma afterward! Can be eaten without the crust and 10x better if you allow it to set overnight. TRUE mousse quality. Even non-Ketos will want the recipe! Don’t miss out!!!
How do you recommend melting the chocolate
You can either use a double boiler or the microwave to melt the chocolate. Chose the one that’s right for you.
Hi! In step two, you list sweetener twice. Can you clarify or adjust? Thanks!
It’s a typo, so sorry for that. You need to add sweetener only once! Thank you so much for noticing. Hope you’ll like the recipe!
Hi Iona, can the pie be frozen?
Yes, you can freeze this keto french silk pie. I just pre-slice it and freeze the slices individually, then defrost in the fridge overnight.
My crust was not crumbly at all. It was pretty soft and hard to press into my pie plate . What could I done wrong ? It looks good though
You can add more almond flour until it the crust gets the right consistency. You can also add a little coconut flour because it absorbs moisture much quicker.Hope this helps!
