This strawberry cream pie is the stuff of dreams, with a delicious keto strawberry mouse filling in an almond flour shortbread crust. Easy to make and only 4 net carbs per slice.
Let’s just go ahead and call this keto strawberry pie a celebratory dessert. What are we celebrating, you ask? Well for one, it’s strawberry season. Fresh gorgeous local strawberries are now available in the pacific northwest and this makes me unbelievably happy. Better yet, my own backyard strawberry plants are finally producing and I can walk out of my house and pick half a pint every morning.
But if that’s not reason enough to celebrate, I also want to take a moment to point out that Easy Keto Desserts launches in ONE MONTH TODAY! I can’t tell you how excited I am for this book, because low carb baking is my passion. My true and ultimate passion! And the pre-sales are going amazingly well. So well that Barnes and Noble is really pushing for it and wants me to make sure you know it’s available for pre-order through them! It’s also available on Amazon, but I am giving B&N some love here because they are really working to promote my book.
Now, this strawberry cream pie recipe is not actually in Easy Keto Desserts, but it fits the theme perfectly. It’s so easy to make and it doesn’t require any baking. In fact, it’s quite similar to the Mocha Cream Pie recipe that I did include in the book. They are both no bake pies with an easy shortbread crust and a creamy, mousse filling. But I won’t give any more away on that. You will just have to buy the book to get the other recipe!
How To Make Strawberry Cream Pie
As I said, this creamy dreamy keto pie is so easy to make, but there are a few things to keep in mind.
- You can leave the crust unbaked, or you can bake it first. It’s up to you! I served mine with an unbaked crust, similar to my No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Pie. But to be honest, I felt that it would have been even better had it been baked. If you do choose to bake it, prick the bottom all over with a fork and bake at 325F for 15 to 20 minutes. Let it cool before adding the filling!
- Don’t skip the gelatin, because it’s what helps this low carb pie set properly. Grassfed gelatin, such as Great Lakes brand, is best. If you use regular gelatin like Knox, you need to sprinkle it over the strawberry puree first and let it “bloom” for a few minutes before warming it.
- Let it set properly! It needs a good 3 hours at least.
- Want to make it even lower carb? Make it without the crust and you have yourself a gorgeous keto strawberry mousse!
Really, words cannot describe how delicious this pie is. And it’s honestly the best way to celebrate strawberry season and the start of summer, because it shows off those fresh berries perfectly. I can’t get enough of them at the moment. I go to my local farmer’s market and I get about 4 pints, just to let my kids munch on them all day long. And then every morning, I go out to my own yard and pick the ripest berries. I have forbidden my kids to pick them, because I take so much pleasure and pride in it myself.
And Easy Keto Desserts comes out in one month and I am so proud of this book. Putting it together was such a pleasure, and creating the recipes brought me such joy. There’s nothing quite like that sort of creative endeavour. I sincerely hope you will consider pre-ordering your copy now!

Keto Strawberry Cream Pie
- In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, sweetener, and salt. Stir in melted butter until dough comes together and resembles coarse crumbs.
- Turn out into a glass or ceramic pie plate. Press firmly with fingers into bottom and up sides. Use a flat bottomed glass or measuring cup to even out the bottom. Freeze while making the filling.
Strawberry Cream Filling:
- In a blender or a food processor, puree the strawberries with the water. Transfer to a medium saucepan and whisk in the gelatin. Set over medium low heat and bring to just a simmer, whisking to dissolve the gelatin. Let cool 20 minutes.
- In a large bowl, combine the cream, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Beat until it holds stiff peaks.
- Pour in cooled strawberry mixture and beat until blended. Spoon into the prepared crust and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.
- Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and fresh berries.
