You won’t believe this Chocolate Silk pie is made with healthy ingredients. Tastes JUST like a conventional pie made with flour, sugar, butter and eggs, but has NONE of those ingredients! Vegan & paleo approved!
You’re gonna need to trust me, ok? I know it’s going to sound WEIRD, and maybe like “WHAT? No WAY”, but I PROMISE it’s GOOD.
But first, THE CRUST. I seriously can’t believe how much it tastes like a “REAL” pie crust. Crisp and buttery, but there’s no butter! It’s made with healthy, whole foods like almonds and flax! Completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and allergy-friendly. Yay!
Now here’s the SECRET: It’s made with AVOCADO and ZUCCHINI. Haha! Yes!!! And it’s SO good. You would NEVER KNOW by tasting it that it’s filled with vegetables.
One of my favorite parts about serving healthy desserts is the shock factor: being able to say “You won’t believe what it’s made of!! … Zucchini! Haha!” And my kids reply with, “What!? Oh my gosh!” Haha. Not only that, but I don’t feel guilty about feeding these desserts to my kids, or eating them myself. And who doesn’t need an extra serving of veggies 😉
Don’t be afraid! The avocado and zucchini make it incredibly silky smooth! It’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup and gets its rich chocolatey flavor from raw cacao, which is full of health benefits!! Did you know cacao has 40x more antioxidants than blueberries, lots of iron, magnesium and MORE calcium than MILK? It’s true!
A pie full of green VEGGIES, antioxidants, vitamins, protein and fiber that tastes like pure chocolate bliss?! Dessert with health benefits?! Yes, it’s TRUE!
If you have never tried a dessert made with avocado or zucchini, DO IT. Like, today. I promise it will change your life 😉
