Pie. It’s a southern staple that graces my memories. Cherry pie was the first pie I ever learned to make under the watchful eye of my grandma. Homemade crust and all!! I remember my grandpa saying that it was really good if you used fresh cherries. Grandma said no one had time to pit all those cherries!! Now, I have some chocolate shakeo that might be older than I care to admit but I refuse to toss it. Since I’m having a love affair with my vegan strawberry, I decided to go in search of recipes for the chocolate. The first was a mug brownie which wasn’t too bad but I intend to tinker with it. My hubby,the brownie hound, wasn’t impressed. Enter honeymoon pie. The recipe isn’t mine but I found it on a website. Basically, it’s a tofu based refridgerator pie. Remember the French silk pie kits that were so popular in the 90’s? Like that but way healthier. So, I whipped it up and stuck it in the fridge. The initial thought was, meh. It’s alright. Hubby thought it wasn’t sweet enough. This morning after my workout, I thought I’d give it another go. Overnight chilling really helped! It tastes sweeter and I’m enjoying it. At 249 calories with 14 grams of protein, I’m digging it! It’s certainly a treat but one anyone can feel good about. I’ll find the recipe and post a link in the comments. Pie, pie oh my!!!!
