"Healthy" Chocolate Pie Recipe

Everyone loves a decadent dessert but as we're recovering from the holiday feasts and fêtes, we wanted to experiment with a healthier version of chocolate pie. Using superfoods dark chocolate and avocado, it is served in a gluten-free almond crust too. Feel free to indulge without the guilt!

And if you don't want to fuss with making a crust, you can easily substitute a pre-made, store-bought one. Plus, you can add so many different toppings to give it your own unique flavor combo.

Prep-Time: 15 mins.
Cook Time: 15 mins. (plus overnight cooling time) 
Servings: 1 pie (about 6 slices)
