Bring the coconut milk and salt to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Whisk in honey and vanilla.
Sift in the arrowroot powder, then remove from heat.
Cool slightly for a minute or two, then whisk in the chocolate until melted.
Beat with an electric mixer for another 3 minutes to add some air and smooth out the texture.
Cool the custard in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Pour into a prepared crust. Check out the crust recipe here: http://www.tgipaleo.com/2011/11/05/monument-chocolate-pie/
You may have some filling left over like I always do…just pour it in a mug and chill in the fridge for a late-night snack.
Refrigerate for at lease 4 hours or overnight, then spread the whipped cream on top before serving.

    Im beginning to question some of the recipes being posted here. A lot of the ingredients on a lot of the recipes on here are not Paleo! Take the Monument Chocolate Pie, Salt, Honey, Vanilla and Whip? Not paleo! I signed up to this website to get Paleo recipes not recipes, for that I have tons of cook books and cooking channels online I can go to. Please keep the recipes Paleo, otherwise don’t call your site Fast Paleo, it is misguiding to what an actual Paleo diet is!

      Hi there, we are monitoring the recipes, and you are correct, that not all recipes are strictly paleo. We cater to paleo and primal folks here at FastPaleo.com. This makes it a great resource for a lot more people.
      Also, paleo as it stands is still an ever evolving “diet”, with new research popping up about all kinds of food items. So, for instance, green beans have been largely accepted as a paleo friendly legume. When in doubt about a recipe we make sure to research the ingredient and will decide on a case by case basis whether or not to post the recipe. We always reject recipes that include grains and sugars of course. But we will post recipes with ingredients, that are accepted in the greater paleo community as an occasional treat.
      When it comes down to it, you have to make your own informed decisions on what you want to eat and what to stay away from. Paleo is not a prescribed diet, it encourages each individual to find the foods they find to beneficial to their health and wellbeing.

    I agree with paleoking. There are far too many recipes which use for example potato starch, stevia, honey, large amounts of coconut milk, as well as many of them promote frying with olive oil etc… Anyway, most of so-called ‘paleo desserts’ are not really paleo, but please, keep it clean from unnecessary unhealthy crap. This one doesn’t even look tasty. It seems like it’s been caused by huge sugar craving of creator

    I thought the same thing when I 1st started Paleo 8 months ago, but I’ve found that while some recipes are not strictly Paleo, most can easily be adapted to the general Paleo lifestyle. There are so many different types of Paleo and there’s not 1 right choice. While I do use caution and don’t necessarily think that just because a recipe is on FastPaleo that it’s 100% what I would consider Paleo, it’s still a wonderful site with lots of great ideas – so I enjoy it for what it is.

    While not all recipes are good for some they are perfectly fine for others. Dont critisize if something doesnt work for you, just dont eat it. I love this pie! And I have no problem with its ingrediants. Honey can be found in nature, paleo indians actually used vanilla beans and cacao, skip the salt, and the whip. (Sometimes I cheat and use organic whipping cream. Hehe) My point is, all recipes are adaptable to personal preference. It just take a little imagination. This is a great site for anyone who is looking for a healthier lifestyle. Paleo or not!
