Super Easy 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.
