Ready for a pie that just screams Valentine’s Day? We've got you covered. This Chocolate Raspberry Pie is so simple, you may want to make a second for when the first one magically disappears.
The recipe includes multiple layers of chocolate, almond butter and berries that will keep you coming back for more. All ingredients are dairy free and the recipe can be made gluten free as well!
It starts with the homemade crust, which includes a ton of good-for-you ingredients, such as almond flour for fiber, monk fruit sweetener for all-natural sweetness and, of course, Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides! Now where else can you get that much out of a pie? (Did we mention we have you covered?)
We better get baking, because by the time it’s done, you may want the whole thing to “be mine!”
