Ingredients

  • 1 AIP Pie Crust, 9 inches (I used this one from Elenaspantry.com)
  • 3 cups Fresh Strawberries sliced in half or quarters, depending on size of berries + additional for serving
  • 3 tablespoons Gelatin
  • 3/4 cups Water
  • 3/4 cups Apple Juice
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 3 tablespoons Arrowroot Starch
  • Mint leaves, garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Prick bottom and sides of piecrust with fork, and bake according to the directions.
  • Let cool. Puree 1 cup of strawberries and then set aside.
  • Place the remaining strawberries in the pie crust.
  • Sprinkle the gelatin over the water.
  • Stir to combine then set aside.
  • Add the pureed strawberries, juice, honey and salt to a small saucepan then stir to combine.
  • Heat over medium heat until boiling, reduce heat a bit and simmer about 5 minutes, until thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and then sprinkle the arrowroot starch and gelatin mixture into the saucepan and whisk.
  • Pour strawberry gelatin mixture over strawberries.
  • Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or until the pie has set.
  • Serve with additional strawberries and fresh mint leaves.

Notes

Use a food processor or immersion blender to puree the strawberries. It’s a small amount so an immersion blender would be the easiest.
I used the AIP piecrust from Elena’s Pantry but you can switch it out for your favorite AIP, Paleo or gluten free pie crust.
Using in season strawberries will yield the best results for this pie. The fruit is just a little bit sweeter during the peak of the season.
Read your labels. Make sure to use apple juice that is just apple juice and doesn’t contain any additional additives or sugar.
