Deborah from Taste and Tell suggests buying a ready-made pie crust which will cut the time in this quick and easy pie recipe. However, if you google healthy homemade pie crust, many will pop up that are so simple. Five minutes are all you would have to add to this chocolate dream pie recipe process.
The recipe suggests using semi-sweet chocolate chips but using dark chocolate can add some additional health benefits. Dark chocolate is the best chocolate. That’s right, dark chocolate which is over 70% cacao is good for you. Quality, high cacao chocolate contains iron, fiber, copper, magnesium, manganese and other minerals. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, which protect you from free radicals, one of the things that can lead to disease. So go ahead and take a chocolate recipe and make it a healthy dark chocolate recipe. For those of you that needed an excuse to eat more chocolate, you’re welcome!
Not only is this chocolate dream pie recipe one of the more quick and easy pie recipes but it will very quickly become one of your best pie recipes do the fact that you can make this pie recipe even healthier than you had thought possible which is always a satisfying feeling. Taste and Tell calls for using cream cheese and milk so why not choose half the fat cream cheese and skim milk. Remember choosing fat-free options, though often promoted as a healthy option is not always so. Some fat in the dairy can help u absorb fat soluble vitamins that are added to dairy products like vitamin A and D. Now how do you top off an already dreamy chocolate pie, why with whipped cream of course and nothing takes the cake – or pie that homemade whipped cream.
Whip cream is the area that you should not, would not cheat on. Yes, it’s made with cream and powdered sugar but in all seriousness, it’s pie and is very rare to dessert recipes that are one hundred percent healthy. So go ahead, whip that cream and feel good about it! Whatever you do, do not substitute the whipped cream with cool whip thinking you are going a healthier route with it having fat free and sugar free options because you are doing your body a disservice. High fructose corn syrups, sweeteners, artificial flavors, and unpronounceable ingredients are much worse than a little bit of cream and sugar, plus its whipped cream so go big or go home! Thank you to Deborah from Taste and Tell for sharing one of the best dessert recipes ever with this Chocolate Dream Pie recipe.**
