White Chocolate Raspberry Pie {THM:S}

A lightly sweet, deliciously creamy & rich pie!

Ahh, it feels good to be back with an actual recipe!

I feel guilty on occasion sharing pictures of my creations, because while I thoroughly enjoy making a 25 step, 60 ingredient, 2 day-process dessert recipe, I know there are MANY people out there who do not share in that joy. I imagine they groan when they see me sharing those pictures, because WHO ON EARTH has TIME to do THAT!?!?!

It’s now become my goal to share more ingredient, time, & shopping list friendly recipes with you all, so I don;t have to hear groans. 🙂

This recipe came about whilst (once again!) I was at work testing a seasonal cream pie recipe. (It was a Pumpkin Cream Pie recipe, in case you’re wondering!). My mind is now OVERFLOWING with variations of pie recipes to bring you.

Mint Chocolate Chip, anyone? How about Peanut Butter Chocolate…..Coconut Joy…..Pumpkin….Lemon Gingersnap?? (I think you get the picture. I hope to bring you those recipes & more this fall!) Any other suggestions from you, my dear viewers?? I love suggestions & welcome the challenge.

This pie is on the rather rich & sumptuous Heavy S side, what with the almond meal crust, cream, chocolate, & neufchatel cheeses, so you will easily be able to get 10 servings out of this. I like to enjoy it as my snack or meal, rather than an add-on to my meal.

White Chocolate Raspberry Pie {THM:S}

A lightly sweet, deliciously creamy & rich pie!
Course: Dessert
Keyword: dessert, gluten free, Low carb, pie, raspberry, sugar free, THM-S
Servings: 10 slices

Ingredients

  • 1- 9 inch pie crust of your choice, baked (I like to use about 3/4 of this recipe, with the cinnamon omitted)
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • cup Swerve confectioners style sugar (or equivalent of other on plan sweetener)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar free white chocolate chips (I prefer the Lily’s brand.)
  • 2- 8 oz. pkgs. neufchatel cheese, softened
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2-6 oz. pkgs. packages fresh raspberries, divided (it will be approximately 2 2/3 cup raspberries, TOTAL)

Instructions

  • Bake pie crust of your choice & set aside to cool.
  • While crust is cooling, whip together using either a hand or stand mixer, 1 ⅔ cups of heavy cream with the vanilla and sweetener until slightly stiff peaks form & set aside.
  • Over VERY low heat or in top of double boiler over barely simmering water, melt white chocolate chips and ⅓ cup heavy cream together, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Whip the Neufchâtel cheese until smooth, using either a hand or stand mixer.
  • Add melted white chocolate mixture, salt, & lemon juice to neufchatel cheese and whip until smooth again, scraping bowl down as necessary.
  • Add half of raspberries (you could probably use all of them if you so desire, I just like to garnish the pie with them!) to neufchatel cheese/white chocolate mixture & mix on low until mixed in and pie is lightly tinted pink. (There will still be chunks of raspberry.)
  • Fold ½ of whipped cream into berry mixture and scrape into cooled pie crust, spreading to fill crust evenly.
  • Either pipe or spread the remaining half of whipped cream decoratively over top of pie.
  • Garnish with remainder of fresh raspberries and a few white chocolate chips if desired!

Notes

Divided amounts for ingredients:
Cream: 1/3 cup for melting white chocolate, 1 2/3 cup for remainder of recipe.
Raspberries: 1-6 oz. package or 1 1/3 cups per step.

Until next time!!! Stay safe….& eat pie!

I started Trim Healthy Mama (THM) in December 2017, as a last resort to get my weight under control, but ended up quickly falling love with the balanced way of eating, food freedom, and grace the plan brought. I’m still a work in progress, but I don’t plan on quitting...over 30 pounds gone with 30 more to lose. Now I’m transforming my favorite pre-THM recipes into healthy, blood sugar balancing, delicious and nutritious recipes. Eat. Enjoy. LIVE! Besides Trimmifying recipes, I enjoy baking, cooking, photography, traveling, reading, healthy living, and spoiling my 21+ nieces and nephews.
