Recipe Tips

How much gelatin for the pie to set? To make the strawberry layer, you need 3 to 4 gelatin leaves. I found that 4 gelatin leaves make a better set but you can use 3 gelatin leaves if you prefer a softer set.

Don't have gelatin leaves/sheets? You can use gelatin powder instead. You'll need a tablespoon (11-12 g) of powdered gelatin for every 4 gelatin leaves. If using gelatin powder, you'll need to sprinkle it over about 4 tablespoons of water before adding to the hot strawberry sauce and cooking for a few seconds until fully dissolved..

Is the dough sticking to the pan? Make sure to like the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. It also helps grease the sides where the parchment paper can't reach with a little more butter or coconut oil.

Finally, if the pan has a removable bottom part, place it in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes to harden. Gently press the bottom up to lift the dough off the sides. This will help prevent sticking as the pie crust bakes.

When making the strawberry filling, you can speed the cooling process down by placing the saucepan with the hot strawberry sauce in a bowl filled with ice water and stir until cool.

Allergy-Free Recipe Options

Can't eat nuts? You can make this recipe nut-free! Simply skip the almond flour and use the same amount of ground sunflower seeds. Alternatively, use this Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust instead!

Can't have dairy? No problem, you can make this recipe dairy-free! Simply skip the cream topping and use whipped coconut cream instead. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make fluffy coconut cream. You can also use water instead of cream to make the egg wash.

Can't eat eggs? You can make this recipe egg-free! To do that, use this Keto Multipurpose Egg-Free Pie Crust instead and skip the egg wash.

Want to make this pie vegetarian? Simply use agar powder instead of the gelatin leaves or gelatin powder. Agar powder can be substituted 1:1 with gelatin powder. This means you'll need 1 tablespoon of agar powder.

Ingredients (makes 12 servings)

Pie crust:
  • 1 3/4 cups almond flour (175 g/ 6.2 oz)
  • 1/4 cup plain whey protein or egg white protein powder (25 g/ 0.9 oz)
  • 1/4 cup powdered Erythritol or Swerve (40 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter, ghee or coconut oil (30 ml)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream (15 ml)
Strawberry filling:
Cream topping:


  1. Start by making the pie crust. We are using this Sweet Keto Pie Crust recipe. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Mix the almond flour, whey protein powder and powdered sweetener. Add softened butter (or ghee or coconut oil) and egg. Use a spoon or your hand to mix until thick dough is formed.
  2. Place the dough between two pieces of cling film and roll using a rolling pin. Transfer the dough (without the cling film) into a 24 cm (9 inch) pie pan lined with a round 24 cm (9 inch) piece of parchment paper. (See recipe tips to prevent the dough from sticking to the sides of the pan.)
  3. Using your hand or a small roller, press the dough down the bottom and up the sides to create an edge. You'll need about 4 cm (1 1/2 inch) edge to hold the filling.
  4. Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down. You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles. Place in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  5. To make the egg wash, combine 1 egg yolk with a tablespoon of cream. Remove the pie crust from the oven and brush with the egg wash (discard any leftover egg wash). This will help keep the filling in the crust as it will seal better. Place back in the oven and bake for 3 to 5 minutes. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  6. Remove the pie crust from the oven and let it cool down while you prepare the filling. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  7. Prepare the strawberry filling. Place the gelatin leaves in a small plate and add water to soften. (See recipe tips if using gelatin powder or agar powder.)
  8. Slice half of the strawberries and place them in a saucepan. Add the sweetener (Allulose or Erythritol), vanilla extract and lemon juice. Gently heat up until the juices start to release, for 3-4 minutes. Once softened, mash with a fork or a potato masher and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  9. Take off the heat. Add the softened gelatin leaves and stir to combine until fully dissolved. Set aside to cool down to room temperature. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  10. Slice the remaining strawberries and place them into the cooled strawberry sauce. Stir to combine. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  11. Place the cooled pie crust on a tray or a large plate. Pour into the pie crust and carefully transfer into the fridge to set. This will take 1 to 2 hours. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  12. When the strawberry filling is set, whip the cream with a teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of powdered sweetener until stiff peaks form. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  13. Use a spatula to spread the cream on top, or use a piping bag. Refrigerate for an hour before slicing. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie
  14. This strawberry pie can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. Low-Carb Fresh Strawberry Pie

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
