Homemade Strawberry Pie & Whipped Cream

I’ll be honest, we don’t eat many desserts around here. I just don’t like to bake, and I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. But homemade strawberry pie and fresh whipped cream is irresistible. 

  1. I cheated and used a frozen pie crust, this was a last minute decision to make pie. Preheat the oven and cook your pie crust while you make the filling.
  2. Cut 5 – 6 cups fresh organic strawberries, I like my pie full of strawberries! (use this same recipe for peach pie) 
  3. 3/4 cup organic sugar (or coconut sugar 1:1 replacement) 
  4. 3 T instant clear gel. – We get this in Landcaster at a bulk foods store. 
  5. Mix your strawberries till they are a little bruised and the clear gel and sugar is thoroughly mixed in.
  6. Dump strawberry filling into cooled pie crust.

    Fresh Whipped Cream

    • 1/2 cup organic heavy cream (or if you have raw milk just scoop that fresh cream right off the top of your cow’s milk, yum!)
    • 2 tablespoons organic sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (keep any eye out for my diy vanilla extract post.)
    • Whip for about 2 minutes, not too long or you will have butter!
    • Top your freshly made pie and enjoy!
