I LOVE strawberries. Love their color, texture, fresh taste. The time of the year when they are in season though is so short that I try to maximize it and use them as much as I can.

This pie filled with lemon custard and fresh strawberries is gonna make your skirt fly up! Did I mention it is made with no dairy and no sugar?

Give this a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

for the crust

  • 150 gr of flour
  • 1 whole organic egg
  • 40 gr of seed oil
  • 50 gr of erythritol sugar (@zumub, discount code: EXPATCUCINA)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • pinch of salt

for the filling

  • lemon custard (follow this recipe but replace milk with soy or almond milk and use Erythritol instead of granulated white sugar)
  • 200 gr fresh strawberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free strawberry jam

Start by making the crust. Whisk up the egg with the erythritol and oil, add in the flour, baking powder, lemon zest and pinch of salt and mix them until you get a soft and smooth dough.
