Vegan Big Boys Fresh Strawberry Pie

Vegan Big Boys Fresh Strawberry Pie

“This Vegan Fresh Strawberry Pie offers a delightful combination of a nutty almond flour crust and juicy, sweet strawberries. The crust, made with almond flour, coconut oil, and a touch of sweetness, provides a perfect base for the luscious filling. The strawberries, sliced and nestled into the crust, are coated in a homemade glaze infused with maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. After chilling to set the glaze, the pie emerges with a burst of fresh flavor and natural sweetness, creating a refreshing and guilt-free dessert perfect for any occasion.”


For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar
  • A pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • 4-5 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the crust:

  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Mix almond flour, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt in a bowl until combined.
    • Press the mixture into a pie dish evenly to form the crust.
    • Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes until it’s lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

For the filling:

  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • Take about 1 cup of the sliced strawberries and mash them in a saucepan.
    • Add water and cornstarch (or arrowroot powder) to the saucepan and mix until the cornstarch dissolves.
    • Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir in maple syrup (or agave nectar), lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
    • Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly until it thickens into a glaze.
    • Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  2. Assemble the Pie:
    • Arrange the remaining sliced strawberries in the cooled pie crust.
    • Pour the glaze mixture evenly over the strawberries, making sure they are well coated.
  3. Chill and Serve:
    • Refrigerate the pie for at least 2-3 hours or until the glaze sets.
    • Once chilled, slice and serve the Vegan Fresh Strawberry Pie. Optionally, you can top it with vegan whipped cream or coconut whipped cream.
