EZ CREAMY STRAWBERRY PIE
This luscious strawberry pie is low-carb, gluten-free, and probably the easiest pie you will ever make!

Ingredients:
1 (9-inch) Almond Pie Crust, recipe below, baked and cooled
8 ounces frozen strawberries (to make 1/2 cup of cooked puree)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
10 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
16 ounces (two 8-ounce tubs) whipped cream cheese
8 ounces plain, Greek yogurt with live cultures
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Liquid sweetener, such as EZ-Sweetz* or LC-Sweet, equal to 14 tbs of sugar
A few grains of salt
Whipped Cream and a perfect strawberry to garnish, optional

Directions:
Place frozen berries in a large saucepan over medium-low heat and cook, stirring frequently, until reduced to 1/2 cup and as thick as jam, about 20 to 25 minutes. Whisk or stir with a fork to break up any large berry pieces. Stir in lemon juice and let cool.

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese and yogurt until smooth. Beat in vanilla, EZ-Sweetz, cooked berry puree, and salt. Fold fresh berries into cream cheese and yogurt mixture. Spread evenly in baked pie shell and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.

Filled pie can be refrigerated for 24 hours. Store filling and crust separately for longer storage. Top with Whipped Cream sweetened with EZ-Sweetz and garnish with a berry.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

  1. Good job on the videos 🙂 I really like them, and I definitely think you should make some more!

  2. Does ez sweetz contain gluten?

  3. Thanks, Ancestral Chef! It was a big job, but it was fun too. Glad you liked them.

  4. Anonymous: no EZ-Sweetz does not contain gluten. There are several different formulations (stevia, sucralose, monk fruit, etc.) but all are sugar-free and gluten-free.
