Whether you are eating a low carb diet due to allergies, health reasons, or if you just want to lose a few pounds, you are going to love this easy-to-make, tasty treat that only has 2 carbs per serving. Shoot, even if you aren't on a low carb diet you'll want to sink your teeth into this no-bake, creamilicious peanut butter pie, because it is sooooo good!

Years ago, probably about 20 of them, I discovered low carb dieting and it helped me to lose the baby weight after having my daughter. In addition to losing weight in all the right places, I also noticed I felt great! My system seems to 'fire on all cylinders', so to speak, when I'm limiting my carb intake. I found a little paperback book for the Atkin's Diet and read it cover to cover. That book is where I found the recipe for this Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie. One taste and I was hooked! I got my neighbor hooked on this pie too. It seemed one of us always had it chilling in the fridge!

Over the years I've strayed from my low carb lifestyle, but for the past couple months I have been back on track and reaping the benefits. I have more energy, I'm more alert, my brain fog has lifted, and I've lost 30 lbs! Yep, I'm feeling great! I'm not advocating for a low carb diet, I'm just sharing what works for me. Not everyone reacts the same to limiting carbs, so be sure to listen to your body if you decide to go that route. It's always best to check with your doctor before making a lifestyle change.

To make this scrumptious treat I mixed peanut butter, cream cheese, and whipped cream together. Because I was sharing this with my mom and husband, I added a little bit of sugar substitute to sweeten it just a tad for them. And by little I mean one of those sugar packets like you put in your coffee. Yeah, it didn't need much. I suggest tasting it and adding sugar substitute a little at a time until it's as sweet as you like it, because we're all different.

Once I had it mixed up and tasting just right, I transferred it from the mixing bowl to a parchment lined 8x8" square pan and popped it in the freezer until set - about an hour. Then I store it in the fridge and enjoy a little piece each day. To serve I grated some chocolate on for garnish, but remember chocolate will add carbs, so be careful and use sparingly. Just a touch goes a long way! I look forward to the creamy goodness of this Peanut Butter Pie each day!
