*Neufchâtel is a cream cheese that is a little sweeter than regular cream cheese and has less carbs; go figure! You can certainly just use regular cream cheese if you can’t readily find it. What’s more If you don’t’ have access to mulberries you can substitute with your favourite berry. Any berry would work with this simple yet delicious pie.

Not familiar with mulberries? Well mulberry trees grow throughout the eastern half of the United States and in many cases in the wild. The flavour tastes like a cross between blueberry and raspberries. They are also very high in vitamin C, 61% of the RDA as well as 23% of the RDA for iron! Not to mention the antioxidants and phytochemicals. That’s a lot of nutrition in a little serving of mulberries.
