Reader Recipe: Diabetic Chocolate Mousse Pie

Diabetic Chocolate Mousse PieOne of my parent's closest friends is diabetic. Unfortunately, I didn't find out until after I made a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies for him. My sister and I felt really proud of our baking accomplishments, walked over to his house, delivered our goods, only to return home and have my mom say, "You know he can't eat those, right?" Luckily the grandkids were in town and devoured all the cookies, but it got me hunting around for a good diabetic dessert recipe. Turns out I didn't have to look very far, as TeamSugar member rlveronica recently posted a fantastic looking Diabetic Chocolate Mousse Pie. It looks tasty enough for even the biggest sweet-fiend and friendly enough for her diabetic dad to eat. If you want to check out the recipe,

My father is a diabetic and doesn't get to enjoy desserts anymore, so I thought I'd make a pie that he could eat and not feel guilty about!

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup whipped cream (I used Cool Whip Free)
3 tbsps of cold water
1 tsp vanilla extract
14 tsp artificial sweetener (I used Splenda)
1 tsp unflavored powder gelatin
1 store bought or homemade graham cracker pie crust

1. In a small saucepan, soften gelatin in cold water
2. Low heat 'til gelatin dissolves completely
3. Mix in a bowl: cocoa, vanilla & whipped cream until stiff
4. Add sweetener and the liquid gelatin and beat until well mixed
5. Place the mixture in a graham cracker pie crust
6. Chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour

(I added the rest of the whip cream on top!)
