In the chocolate cream pie recipe we used a tbsp of gelatin to help thicken the pie filling up and give it a gelatinous form and texture. The grass-fed gelatin we use is rich in collagen protein that provide key amino acids to support the joints, skin, nails, bones and intestinal lining. So this ingredient improves the texture and provides great nutrient support for the body.
If you don’t have the gelatin or are a vegan, you can try replacing it with chia seeds, which have a solubility factor that helps with the texture, but I don’t think it will work quite as good as the gelatin.
We used stevia in this recipe as it is a healthy natural sweetener that does not impact your blood sugar and has nutritional value. If you don’t do well with stevia, you can also try the Honest keto maple syrup here or the Lakanto brand keto maple syrup here. Both of these are made from natural ingredients and do not contain anything that elevated blood sugar levels.

Coconut provides healthy medium chain fats that are easier to digest and easier to convert into ketones than long-chain fats we find in other foods. This makes the process for your body to use fat as fuel significantly easier and in combination with a very low-carb, high healthy fat diet, this turns you into a fat burning machine!
Raw cacao is rich in polyphenolic anti-oxidants, PEA’s and theobromine which all work together to improve circulation throughout the body and support healthy neurotransmitter levels. Chocolate is called “mood food” because it supports optimal serotonin, dopamine and endorphin levels that give us a sense of bliss.
