This pie is a twist on an old recipe. My mom has been making this low-calorie pie for years. It was not a favorite of mine because it just seemed like a loosey-goosey imitation of a good, rich chocolate pie. To me it was not worth eating. Someone got the idea to freeze it. Brilliant! It then is firm instead of watery. It seems rich and decadent. Who knew? The pie looks wonderful the way it’s presented. Who could resist?
It still has little nutritional value, but who eats chocolate pie for that? It contains all sorts of artificial sweeteners and other chemicals. But it’s low calorie, so make you peace with that if you can. It is much lower calorie and lower in fat than an ice cream pie, my favorite. I’d rather have an honest-to-goodness ice cream pie, which is easier and quicker to make. However most ice cream pies are loaded with sugar and fat. If you do make an ice cream pie, why not add some whipped cream and chocolate syrup drizzled over it as shown in the photo above? Freeze it all and be prepared for oohs and ahhs.
