Low Carb Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe

A Super Easy Lower Carb Dessert

It is hard to find a dessert that will fit into a diabetic or a weight loss diet. Because I am a diabetic myself, I am always on the lookout for something that I can eat for dessert. A piece of this pie has about 21 grams of carbs. It isn't something you should eat all the time, but it does make a treat that you can eat when you feel like you just have to have something sweet and good. Be sure to add the carbs in when figuring the intake in your meal plan.

Warning - This is a low carbohydrate dessert, but it is still high enough that you can not eat it all the time.

I make one of these whenever our family gets together for a holiday party. That way when I hit the dessert table there is something there I can eat. Many of my family members are diabetic too, so they appreciate me bringing it. .

I used a purchased graham cracker crust that I found on sale at the store. These can be purchased inexpensively when they are on sale. If you prefer to make your own, that is fine too.

This sounds delicious! I love pie. Recently, I started eating gluten-free because of my health issues. For Thanksgiving I made a gluten-free pumpkin pie. My son's therapist is also a nutritionist and she said I can substitute gluten-free cookies for graham cracker crust. So, as long as I can get away with that, I can certainly try this recipe!

That sounds like a winner. This pie is good and I don't know why it wouldn't be just as good with the cookies.

I think you can lower the carb count even more by using cream instead of milk and real whipped cream with sweetener for the topping. Think I'll try one, too.

When I make desserts, I usually cut the amount of sugar given in half, and that really is plenty. I've been doing that for quite a while now.

Barbara, the pie is so beautiful I would like the frosting. I don't do chocolate it triggers migraines, but I will try this for the next party for my friends who are dibetic.

Barbara Kay 2 years ago from USA Author

Shyron, You can make it in any flavor if you can't have chocolate. It seems vanilla would be a little plain, but you could make it into a butterscotch or a banana pie. The bananas would raise the carbs though. Thanks for viewing.
