Keto Easy Strawberry Pie
Dessert is one thing I hate giving up no matter what diet I follow. That is why this Keto Easy Strawberry Pie is a great choice for a keto or lowcarb lifestyle. It gives me the flavor and sweetness I love without going outside of my macros.
Keto Easy Strawberry Pie
I love anything strawberry flavored. Strawberries are my most favorite fruit and thank goodness they are keto friendly in moderation. After I made my Very Best Keto/Low Carb Lemon Pie I thought that I could create a keto friendly easy strawberry pie as a spinoff of that recipe. This Keto /Low Carb Strawberry Pie is so easy to make and delicious. From start to finish it only takes a few minutes; in fact, you’ll spend more time waiting for it to set up in the freezer than making it. Also, if you don’t love keto approved flours, this recipe doesn’t contain any flour at all.

How to Make a Keto-Friendly Easy Strawberry Pie
First, crush the pecans for the crust.
Add butter and Monkfruit Classic to the crushed pecan mixture and pulse to combine all ingredients.
Pour pecan crust into greased pie pan and use the back of a greased spoon to smooth and spread the crust.
In a bowl, use a mixer to beat heavy whipping cream for several minutes on medium/high until the heavy whipping cream begins to form stiff peaks.
Beat on high until all the ingredients are combined and the strawberries begin to break down. When they do, you will notice that the mixture turns pink.
Add the beaten heavy whipping cream to the strawberry mixture.
Beat again until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, and the easy Strawberry Pie filling is smooth.
Spoon the pie filling into the pie pan and freeze for a couple of hours so that it sets before serving.
Serving Keto Friendly Easy Strawberry Pie
It is so important to be patient while this sets up in the freezer. Since you aren’t using gelatin in this easy strawberry pie recipe to help set it, you have to depend on the freezer.
When you pull this out of the freezer to serve, run a knife under hot water before slicing. This little tip makes sure you have nice clean cuts and that the Keto strawberry pie recipe will be easy to serve. Top each slice with a sliced strawberry and a sprig of mint for a beautiful serving option!
Easy & Delicious Keto Strawberry Pie
This Keto /Low Carb Strawberry Pie is so easy to make and delicious. From start to finish it only takes a few minutes; in fact, you'll spend more time waiting for it to set up in the freezer than making it.
For the Crust:
Add butter and Monkfruit Classic to crushed pecans and mix thoroughly. I added the ingredients to my mini processor and pulsed until all of the ingredients were combined.
Grease a pie pan then add crust mixture.
Grease the back of a spoon and use it to carefully smooth the pecan mixture in the bottom of the pie pan and up the sides.
Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.
For the Filling:
In a large bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks.
In a separate bowl, add one cup chopped strawberries, softened cream cheese, Monkfruit Powdered, and vanilla then beat on medium speed until the mixture is smooth and the strawberries begin to break down turning the filling pink.
Add the heavy whipping cream to the strawberry mixture and beat again until smooth.
Pour filling mixture into pecan crust and freeze for 1 to 2 hours before serving so that it sets up. (You may store pie in fridge and pop in the freezer for about an hour or two before serving.)

I’ve made your lemon pie and your key lime mousse no I put it in a Pecon crust also.
Just a couple comments on both. I followed the directions exactly on the lemon pie. Putting it in the freezer was not a good idea. Maybe my freezer is colder than yours. But it was too hard to cut, even after warming the knife In hot waterIn hot water. Then I made the mousse and I put it in a crust also. I did not put it in the freezer. But I did refrigerate for two hours. It was perfect! Therefore I do not recommend the freezer step.
I just want to say these are two outstanding recipes. Next I’m trying the strawberry one. I’m sure it too will be fabulous!
This is one of my husband’s favorites, so I’m making for his Father’s Day dinner. This time, I’m making them in silicone muffin pans. The leftover filling, I put in mini muffin pans for bite-sized snacks. They are in the freezer now. I know they are going to be ahhh-mazing. Thanks for sharing!
I made this strawberry pie for my husband’s birthday. We are diligent on the keto gig (at least currently). This pie was WONDERFUL! Followed the recipe exactly and was very pleased with the results. Will definitely make again. Yummo all the way!
Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
