Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate Pie with Meringue

My cousin Penny has recently started her own Trim Healthy Mama journey. I’m so excited for her! We were close growing up. She’s older than me by exactly 364 days. So for one whole day every year we were the same age. I seriously loved that day. Penny was always so cool, and pretty, and fun to be around. As a kid I wanted to be just like her. Now here we are, sharing tasty, healthy recipes with each other – all grown up. 

A lovely perk of Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle is it’s so easy to modify favorite recipes to be on plan and weight-loss friendly. Our Nanny always made the most wonderful chocolate meringue pie during the holidays. Penny has transformed a family classic into a healthy, low carb, sugar free delight! Read on for a very special guest post from her.
