Strawberry Cream Pie
Strawberry cream pie is a smooth, refreshing taste of summer.
We pick about 25 pounds of strawberries each season to use for homemade jam, pies and freezing for smoothies. This year we worked hard to edit recipes so that they would be clean eating approved, like this strawberry cream pie.
The trick to this pie is letting it cool completely, freezing it over night would be even better. Unlike other cream pie recipes that use, well … cream, this strawberry cream pie recipe uses Greek yogurt. Unfortunately it doesn’t hold up as well as thick cream. So make sure to serve very cold.
We used Greek yogurt of course to cut the fat and keep the recipe clean eating approved, but this also makes the pie super high in protein. Food just tastes better when you know it is a healthy version.
This pie only takes a few ingredients. The most important is to start with a pre-baked clean eating approved crust like this one from Clean Eating Mag Whole Grain Pie Crust
Here is how to make it!
