Creamy low carb strawberry lemonade filling in a no-bake almond flour crust. This might be the keto frozen dessert of your dreams this summer! Made with (and sponsored by) Pete and Gerry’s Certified Humane Organic Eggs.
I’ve joined a vegetable CSA for the first time this summer and I find myself both excited and a little worried. I am excited to see all the wonderful produce that comes my way and worried that I will be overwhelmed with how to use it up. I’ve resisted joining them in the past, not because I don’t care where my food comes from (I do, I really do care very much), but because I know that there is a bit of pressure to use all that glorious produce in its prime. I joined the CSA at the request of a friend, who wanted to go in on a share together, but I also have a number of my own veggies planted again this year. I was already drowning in tomatoes and zucchini last year and now I’ve just added more veggies on top of that. What was I thinking!??!?!?
As I do care so much about where my food comes from, I am particularly mindful about eggs. We’ve all seen those horrible factory farms where hens are virtually are stacked up one upon the other, no space to roam. That’s been of concern to me for a long time, so I am thrilled to be partnering with Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs this year. I’ve purchased their organic free-range eggs for quite a while because their values align with mine. All the certified eggs come from small family farms with strict standards for humane practices and sustainability.
You see plenty of “cage-free” eggs on the market and that’s quite a hot buzzword these days. But cage-free may not actually mean much in terms of humane treatment, as many of these facilities still crowd too many hens into small spaces – floors upon floors of them. Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs, on the other hand, works with farmers on real farms, and require the farmers to give the hens real access to the outdoors, with grass, dirt and fresh water whenever they want it. And space for them to behave the way hens want and need to behave…roosting, dust bathing, and interacting socially. I like knowing my eggs come from happy, well-treated hens – and we eat a lot of eggs in this house.
Now what do to with all those eggs and all that fresh produce? My CSA farm also grows berries and I have no worries about using those up. From drinks to snacks to frozen treats, I can’t stop dreaming up recipes for fresh local berries. Especially in the summer, when no-bake and frozen treats are in the order of the day. And this low carb Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie fits that bill perfectly. The filling is made semifreddo style, with eggs and egg yolks to keep it softer in the freezer. It’s creamy, smooth, tangy and delicious. A perfect marriage of eggs and berries!
