How to Make Buttery (And Flakey) Keto Pie Crust

Being on a keto diet doesn’t necessarily mean you need to give up the good stuff. With just a few tweaks of a recipe, you can easily prepare a low-carb counterpart that fits the keto guidelines and that’s exactly what I did with this keto pie crust. Check it out:

  • Grease. Using some non-stick cooking spray or butter, grease your pan.
  • Make the crust mixture. Combine your butter, sweetener, almond flour and salt.
  • Press the dough into the pan. Press the dough mixture onto the bottom of your 9-inch pan. Prick the bottom with a fork.
  • Refrigerate. This will help solidify the crust.
  • Bake. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

How to Make Keto Strawberry Cream Pie

How does one resist a good strawberry cream pie, especially if it is low-carb and keto-friendly? The answer is: you don’t. The strawberry cream filling is ridiculously easy, as you’ll see below:

  • Heat gelatin mixture. Dissolve your gelatin in water in a small saucepan. Set aside.
  • Prepare your strawberry powder. Using a coffee grinder or blender, grind the freeze-dried strawberries into powder. Set aside.
  • Prepare the rest of the cream filling. Combine the cream cheese and sweetener. Then add the lemon juice and strawberry mixture.
  • Whip. Lastly, add the gelatin mixture and heavy cream and beat everything together until whipped and airy.
  • Pour. Pour the strawberry cream filling into the pan with the prepared crust.
  • Refrigerate. Refrigerate the strawberry cream pie overnight.
  • Top with whipped cream. Optional: top with sliced strawberries.

Are Strawberries Keto-friendly?

Yes, strawberries are keto-friendly in moderation. Bear in mind that fresh strawberries are the best as they contain the original water content and no added sugars. Sugar-glazed strawberries on the other hand, are an example of a non-keto friendly variant.

Per 1 cup of strawberries (sliced): 12.7 grams of carbs (3.3 grams dietary fiber) = 9.4 grams net carbs.
