Vegan Strawberry Pie
Servings: 8 slices
Vegan Strawberry Pie is the perfect summertime dessert, made with plenty of fresh strawberries and a sweet homemade sauce with no Jell-O! Only 6 ingredients and easy to make.
Bake the pie crust: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. If using my pie crust recipe, prepare the crust according to instructions and line a 9 inch pie pan with the crust, trimming the edges as needed. Poke all over the bottom with a fork and bake for 15-20 minutes. If worried about the crust puffing up, you can place a piece of parchment paper inside the crust and put about 1 cup of dried beans or rice on top. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, wash and hull the strawberries. Slice if desired (I left them whole).
Take 3/4 cup of the strawberries and add to a saucepan. Mash them with a fork or potato masher, then stir in the sugar, water, cornstarch and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and cook for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat.
Place the rest of the strawberries in the cooked pie crust, pointy side up (for prettiness!). You will probably have 2 layers of strawberries; simply arrange them fairly evenly.
Pour the thickened strawberry sauce into the pie pan with the strawberries, evenly distributing the sauce over the berries.
Chill in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours before serving. The pie will thicken and become sliceable. Serve with a dollop of Coconut Whip Cream if desired and enjoy!
- For gluten free, use my Gluten Free Pie Crust.
- If you want to lower the sugar, you could probably go down to 1/2 cup sugar, or use coconut sugar or even maple syrup if desired.
- Try serving with swirls of Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting for a delicious alternative to whip cream. It's quite tasty, like a strawberry cheesecake!
- The nutrition facts do not include the pie crust, as it will vary greatly depending on which crust you use.
