I wanted to make something yummy for Easter dessert that showcased one of our foods for our guests. We are still doing Keto so I wanted it to be something that we could stick to our diet but would still impress everyone.
Since we have been eating low carb high fat, I have been a big fan of the Low Carb Maven. I love coming up with my own recipes, but sometimes without the flour and sugar I have been used to most of my life things can get tricky. So, for this dessert I combined two of her recipes and added our banana baby and everyone else food to make this show stopping pie.
Even more timely, I had just become addicted to watching Zumbos Just Desserts on Netflix. The episode I watched that day was "Franken Desserts". I think as they say in the show that this dessert fit the brief. I combined a banana cream pie which is one of my favorite desserts and a french silk pie which mom loves.
Now, let me be clear this was still a bit of a cheat on the diet. Layering 2 cream pies makes a super high fat dessert. When I made mine, my pie pan could not hold all of the chocolate pie filling. I had about a quarter of it left. If you use all of both fillings and cut the pie into 12 this comes in at 44 g of fat. Since we are on 80% fat 6% carbs and 14% protien we are happy about the amount of fat. It is 23 g of carbs though, so we had to save most of our carbs for this treat.
That is what desserts are about anyway right? So go ahead and treat yourself with this creamy dreamy pie
* Nutrition facts are based on 12 slices of pie using all the filling the recipe calls for but, you will likely have left overs.
