Pecan Crusted Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie


dairy-free gluten-free low-sugar coconut cream pie



Let's be real. Showing up at the Superbowl party with a gluten-free, dairy-free, and low-sugar dessert, is not likely to score you any points.   But, bring something rich and decadent filled with sweet pecans, coconut chips, loads of chocolate shavings... AND never let them know it's good for them ... Touchdown!

This is by no means a low-calorie dessert.  It is rich, decadent and super filling, but you control the amount of sugar that goes in.  Trust me though....don't bother counting the calories.  Just enjoy!  Hope your team wins!
