Healthy French Silk Pie Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Low-Cal French Silk Pie

FitSugar reader Connoisseur4TheCure shared this low-cal recipe for chocolate cream pie in our Healthy Recipe group.

This no-bake chocolate pie is fantastic! You won't know it's healthy while you are eating it! This recipe contains tofu, which is high in protein. One slice of this pie has about 230 calories, which is about half of the calories in a regular chocolate pie.

Chocolate is believed to have many health benefits from its antioxidant properties. Go here for more on the research of chocolate and its anti-cancer properties.

The evidence on the use of tofu for breast cancer patients is very controversial. The isoflavones in soy mimic estrogen, so some doctors advocate it as a means to suppress the body from making too much estrogen. Others say that it can be dangerous for women with estrogen receptive breast cancer and they should avoid soy. Here is more information on the soy debate. I am not a physician or dietician. Please consult your doctor before making any dietary changes if you have ever had cancer.

This recipe reminds me a lot of the chocolate mousse recipe I posted a couple of weeks back. Go here for that recipe. The consistency of the pie is thicker than the mousse, which has a more fluffy pudding like consistency.

This chocolate pie is very rich, so it can serve 8 to 10 people. This would also make a wonderful pudding or mousse. Just omit the crust and serve in parfait glasses.
