Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - TREAT!! Chocolate Cloud Pie

After a fabulous weekend at The Arnold Sports Festival 2013 - it was time to relax a bit. All the hard work done, the dieting, the workouts, the cardio - time to take a brief rest before diving back in. After meeting my awesome sponsor, Mike at Champion Nutrition, and discovering he's got a bit of a sweet tooth ;-) it seemed like a great time to share this recipe. It's not mine, though I made a few tweaks including omitting the crust - who needs a crust when you're dealing with some serious chocolate?

And just in case you don't think you have room for a treat? Check out the nutrition on this bad girl... per serving: 102 calories, 3 grams protein, 5 grams carbs, 7 grams fat, 57 mg sodium, 3 grams sugar, 2 grams fiber. 3 grams Net Carbs.  UNBELIEVABLE!

    1. 1/16 of the pie - it's a full regular pie size, so you just cut it into 16 slices. It's so rich that a larger slice would be too much ;-) Feel free to lick the spoon (and the bowl) on this one! It's amazing!!!
