Heaven on my plate.

It’s been some time since I posted a recipe, and seeing as food is kind of a big topic for this blog, I thought I should get one on here!  So last night we had dinner with the In-laws.  Because my FIL in diabetic I wanted to make something low sugar for desert. 

I came up with this slice of heaven:

Cappuccino Cloud Pie


Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal, 1 cup

Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey: Vanilla Ice Cream, 1cup

Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, 3 tbsp

Smart Balance “LIght” with Flax Buttery Spread, 1/4c melted

Salt, 1/8 tsp – optional

Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp

1/2tsp baking powder

Mix the almond meal, salt and protein powder  & baking powder together.  Pour in the melted butter and vanilla and stir until clumpy.  Press into a pie pan and bake at 350 for 10-12 min until the edges start to brown.  Let it cool.


Jell-O fat-free/sugar-free Vanilla pudding mix, dry, 2 boxes

Milk, 1%, 1 cup

Instant Coffee granules, 1-2 tsp (depending on how much coffee flavor you like)

Chobani (Non-Fat Greek Yogurt – Plain), 6oz

Whipped Cream, Cool Whip, Sugar Free 1/2 container

Bailey’s Irish Cream, Coffee Flavor, 17% Alcohol, 1 oz OPTIONAL

Dark chocolate for garnish

Dissolve the coffee granules in the milk.  Add the coffee milk  and yogurt to the 2 packages of pudding mix.  Stir well, it will be very thick.  Stir in the Baily’s Irish Cream if using.  Fold in the whip cream and spread into your pie crust.  Garnish with shaved chocolate and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
