Are you ready for a recipe makeover? I recreated one of my favorite desserts, Chocolate Turtle Pie, and made it much healthier using whole foods. So, YES, you can have your pie and eat it, too! 😉
Have YOU ever experienced the amazingness that is chocolate turtle? It’s the scrumptious combination of chocolate, CARAMEL, and pecans! But in this pie, you won’t find any sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, bleached flour, or refined sugar in this recipe. So what’s it made of?? Unconventional ingredients that are delicious and good for you!
The chocolate filling is made with (gasp!) AVOCADO. (And no, it doesn’t taste like guac! Haha!) They make it so smoooooth and creamy.
Avocados make the perfect healthy swap for traditional chocolate pie filling. Blended with maple syrup, cacao and coconut oil, avocado takes on a delicious rich chocolate flavor that you don’t have to regret eating. And avocados are SO incredibly good for you.
This pie has a thick layer of caramel spread on the chocolate. But it’s made with 1 ingredient: DATES! Have you tried date caramel? It’s super easy to make and has a similar flavor to conventional caramel, but it’s vegan, Paleo and full of healthy fiber!
Don’t even get me started on PECANS. Freshly roasted with a touch of sea salt… Mmmm! But when you combine them with chocolate and caramel! It elevates them to a whole other level.
This pie would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner! Or if you’re looking for more healthy Thanksgiving desserts, check out my
