Strawberry Pie

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

This Fresh Vegan Strawberry Pie is the best way to enjoy summer! The sugar cookie pie crust is perfectly crisp with soft, flavorful strawberries piled high. This easy homemade strawberry pie will be your new go-to this Summer and Spring.

I swapped out the plain old buttery crust for this delicious sugar cookie crust because it

  1. Adds Sweetness

  2. Crunch

  3. & Dimension to the Dish

Frankly, regular pie crusts do not do it for me. I am the person that will eat the entire filling and leave the pie crust, so I decided it was best to make something that I would 100% eat.

If you are curious, the basic components of a fruit pie come down to this:

  • Pie Crust

  • Sugar

  • Fruit

  • Cornstarch

Simple, right? That's why I love making them. They are easy to make and all you have to do is throw it in the oven for 45 minutes and call it a day.

This Vegan Strawberry Pie recipe:

  • Is Easy to Prepare

  • Healthy

  • Refined Sugar-Free

  • Gluten-Free Option

Plus it is hands down, the best strawberry pie! If you are gluten-intolerant, you can substitute the all-purpose flour out with a gluten-free blend!

For this week's spiritual pit stop, I want to ask you what are you doing to reach your goals?

If the answer was a sheepish, "Nothing..." That's okay. You are here to start and are ready to learn, expand, and grow.

To me, taking small actionable steps, are the cornerstone of your success. Whether that is finally setting up a blog, asking for help, research, going to the gym, or anything else. That is

taking a step towards your dreams and goals. It is saying that you believe in yourself and that you are willing to take the steps to make your life happen.

So what is your first step going to be?
