Did you know you can make an amazing pie crust using our Smart Portion Rich Double Chocolate Muffin Tops?

No? We didn’t either! But recently, after a little experimentation, we came up with a simple recipe to turn our Smart Portion Muffin Tops into a wonderful, fudgy crust that is simply irresistible. We filled the crust with a delicious chocolate-cream pudding, and a Smart Portion Double Chocolate Pie was born! One taste and we were in chocolate heaven – and we think you will be, too!

Do we really need to say that our low-fat Smart Portion Muffin Tops fill your Smart Portion Double Chocolate Pie with plenty of healthy probiotics, Omega-3s, vitamin D, calcium, fiber and protein? Of course! You can feel extra-good about having a slice – and serving it to your family and friends!
