Light Chocolate Mousse Pie – Easy! Low-Carb – Kim’s Club

I was going to try for an `”Impossible” chocolate pie after the success of my coconut custard pie.  So that is NOT what I ended up with.  However, I did end up with a light, chocolatey, mousse-like pie, that I think is worthy of throwing out there for you all.  So here – try it!

“Impossible” Coconut Custard Pie – Low Carb and Paleo – Kim’s Club

coconut custard tart slice Low Carb

First of all – how do you like my plate??  I painted it myself!  It’s the only thing I’ve ever done in those pottery painting places that I really liked!  Those were the days when my daughter was young and on a rainy holiday it was one of the few indoor pastimes we both enjoyed.  I love these napkins too – a dear English friend gave them to me thinking they looked retro Americana, (as you know I’m American but live in the UK) – and they do!  I love them!

Anyway, another friend of mine posted a high carb, bake mix based “Impossible” coconut pie on FB.  It looked so good I just had to have a go at making it without grains, dairy or sugar.  Here is the result.  Although the “impossible” bit, the self-forming crust ended up on the top, rather than the bottom of this custardy pie, it came out absolutely yummy and SO easy.  My husband loved it too – AND as a bonus, it is actually pretty low in calories for a pie.  No messing about with 1/10 or 1/8 portions.  Let’s be real.  In MY world a piece of pie is 1/6 of the pie!  And that is what I have calculated here.  Well under 200 kcal a slice (183) and 1 net carb.  Enjoy!
