Chocolate French Silk Pie (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

I'm back on a chocolate phase... whoops. Doesn't that look so good though? Yeah, that's not mine... It's my photo though, does that count for a little? Yes, my photo, one taken with a camera! I got half a camera for my birthday (which is in 6 days!) so I can take better pictures for all y'all.  

This weekend my family and I flew out to Alberta to surprise my grandpa for his 70th birthday. We went out for dinner and had ethiopian food and amazing pies for dessert (PS that's the pie I had up there)  It was so good but of course, carbolicious. So when I came home I decided to make my own, à la low carb. That's the one down below I made.

Not quite as beautiful, but just as scrumptious and plus, it's better for you! 

Makes one pie

Almond flour crust
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz (one brick) cream cheese, softened
3 tbsps cocoa powder
3/4 cup xylitol or erythritol

Whip whipping cream until firm. Add all other ingredients and mix until completely combined and smooth. Pour into cooled pie crust and chill for at least an hour. Cut and enjoy!
