Say “Yes!” to Low Carb Chocolate Pie

This low carb chocolate pie does not taste low carb at all. It is creamy and chocolatey and sweet. And, it is a perfectly chilled summer dessert. Oh, yeah, this low carb chocolate pie is on constant rotation in my house.

Looks delicious, right? Because I have to count calories, the calorie count is a bit high for me, but I have a fix for that. Scroll down to Tip Time if you want to cut the calories, carbs, and fat grams.

Tip Time!

Tip #1: To reduce the calorie and carb counts, forgo the crust and serve in dessert cups. Without the crust, a serving of this yummy chocolate treat comes in at only 231 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 3 net carbs!

Tip #2: Use a silicone whisk when thickening the filling. Compared to a wire whisk, a silicone whisk won’t damage your saucepan or make that awful scraping noise as it hits the bottom of the pan over and again.

You’ve got the ingredients list, you’ve got the directions, not get yourself a chocolatey, low carb treat!

Happy eating, my friends!
