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 : http://elanaspantry.com/paleo-pie-crust/
For an E pie, you can use a pie crust made from Oat flour, like this one: http://newvegmom.blogspot.co.uk/2009/08/oatmeal-pie-crust.html 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
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!
