Low Carb French Coconut Pie
Last weekend we went to my mom’s house to spend time with my family in Georgia. My mom is an amazing southern cook. Everything she makes is delish. She especially has a special touch with desserts. When we walked in the door from traveling my mom had her homemade French Coconut Pie waiting for us. However, since we have been following Keto for a while, we haven’t cheated even once. Since we wanted to continue our no sugar streak, we said no to pie. It wasn’t easy, but we left proud of ourselves for staying strong.
When we got home, I was looking in a cookbook that my mom made for me when I first got married with all my favorite recipes including her French Coconut Pie. After looking at the ingredients I thought I could make a couple of changes to the recipe and make it low carb. I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out as low carb desserts can be tricky. Even my kids said it was pretty good for keto. I won’t tell you it tastes exactly like my mom’s pie, but it’s a good alternative.
