Frozen Vegan Strawberry Pie

Imagine lots of healthy fruits, nuts, seeds and honey or agave, frozen into a vegan strawberry pie for summertime dessert!

Vegan Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Desserts To Welcome Spring and Summer

A beautiful spring morning in a field of strawberries, a cool mist settled over the leaves, reminded me of the crystals that form over the top of a frozen summer dessert. I knew exactly what dessert would be made of my morning basket of strawberries.

After a long cold winter, a strawberry plant beginning to show fruit gives me hope that spring is close. 

Strawberry Patch

For this reason, I keep a few strawberry plants indoors that usually bare fruit a month before the outside patch is in bloom. 

When strawberry season arrives, we are suddenly overwhelmed with this scrumptious sweet fruit and so this frozen strawberry pie was created to enjoy long after strawberry season is over. 

It’s Vegan But Shhhhh Don’t Tell

It’s vegan. Okay, so what? Well, since this luscious frozen pie doesn’t have dairy or eggs, or even gluten ingredients, it is idea for everyone!

Nuts, dates and hemp seeds make up the crust, while coconut milk and lots of strawberries make up the creamy filling. 

Honey or agave is really not needed in this dessert unless your strawberries are not very sweet. With each bite, remember those sweet dates are in the crust, so taste the strawberry cream once it’s pureed and see if your strawberries need a little kiss of sweetness.

Healthy Frozen Summertime Desserts

Many decadent swaps can be made from this Frozen Strawberry Dessert, but today, while still in “pre-bathing suit” season, I opted for my favorite gluten-free, dairy-free, very little sugar dessert that satisfies each, and every time I make it… regardless which fruit I use in it!

Vegan Strawberry Custard In A Date And Nut Crust

While a Strawberry Shortcake is certainly the desired dessert around Mother’s Day, since the strawberries just arrived, I am in want of less calories and a healthier option for the rest of the summer. 

Freeze Now Enjoy Anytime

I often keep a batch of Mason Jar Lids, already prepared with my date, nut and hemp seed crust so all I need do is take them out and fill them. They are small and just enough for a sweet tooth. 

Date Nut and Hemp Seed Crust

For a luncheon size dessert I will opt to fill a few individual size spring-form pans I bought with the same crust for an impressive dessert. 

As for the easy strawberry filling, slightly sweetened with a very ripe banana, you have a fabulous frozen pie or even just a ‘Nice Cream’ with strawberry. 

Freeze a batch now and enjoy all summer.
