Low Carb Chocolate Silk Pie

This low carb, trim healthy mama s chocolate silk recipe is amazing!

This pie is a dream for someone who is sugar-free. I haven’t had an on plan chocolate pie, ever that I liked. My Granny always made the dressing for the holidays and she made two chocolate pies. They weren’t on plan but they were good. We lost Granny to a tragic accident this year. I decided, in her honor, to make one. Our holidays are going to be very different but we are going to make the best of it.

This is a special occasion pie.

Unless you need to lose weight, I wouldn’t eat this everyday. For holidays and special occasions, this is great!! If you have been missing chocolate silk pie, this as close to the original that I have tasted. I adapted my chocolate mousse recipe to make it more like pie filling. If you want a pie that is low carb that will wow guests, this is it. It is mousse like, creamy, and decadent.

I used xanthan gum in the whipped cream to help stabilize it.

It seemed to work really well. I used a trim healthy mama chocolate bar that I grated on top but you can use whatever kind of chocolate your have, or even none at all. Despite this dessert looking so pretty (if you are a decorator you can really wow this up, I just used a ziploc baggie), you can have this dessert made in about 30 minutes, with a little planning ahead. You really want your cream cheese and butter at room temp. That is really keep to make sure there aren’t any lumps in your pie filling. Now, here’s the recipe.
