Sugar Free Strawberry Pie! - THM S or E

Since beginning my journey on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, I have found that there are a lot of wonderful recipes to tweak.  I began with a simple recipe for Shoney' Strawberry Pie and decided I was going to come up with my own sugar free plan approved version.  I mean what else are you going to eat during strawberry season!  This recipe is great for a summer time treat!

For an S pie, you can use an S pie crust from Elana's Pantry found here :

For an E pie, you can use a pie crust made from Oat flour, like this one:  Just use olive oil or Coconut oil instead of grapeseed oil.

But the beauty of this recipe is that it can be used with an S crust or an E crust!  Yes it's just that easy!  I'm drooling looking at the picture right now.  :)  YUM

Sugar Free Strawberry Pie - S or E depending on the crust.

1 cup water
1/3c THM Sweet Blend
1tsp glucomannan
1 tsp strawberry extract (optional but does add extra flavor)
3 strawberries mashed (gives it that deep red look)
2 packets of unflavored gelatin
2-3 cups of sliced strawberries (depending on the size of your crust)
Your favorite S or E crust recipe!

Mix the water, Sweet Blend, strawberry extract, mashed strawberries, and Glucomannan in a pot. 
Whisk until dissolved and starts to thicken (mine did not actually thicken that much) 
Pour in gelatin packet and whisk until dissolved. 
Heat for just a few minutes until bubbly and remove from stove top to let cool. 
While cooling, place sliced strawberries in a cooked and cooled S or E crust of your choice. 
You want it to fill the crust!
Make sure you have your pie crust with the strawberries on a plate before the next step!  Sometimes it get messy!
Pour cooled wet mixture over berries in crust and place in fridge for at least 2 hrs.
Whip up some whipped cream and put a dollop on top!  ENJOY!
