One of the finest berry desserts of summer is a strawberry pie made with fresh strawberries and topped with coconut whipped cream. It’s filled with fresh, juicy strawberries and coated with a sugary strawberry glaze that solidifies to look like a delicious strawberry jam!

For the entire strawberry season, I have been preparing lots of amazing vegan strawberry recipes that are also gluten-free, like Vegan Strawberry Cobbler, Vegan Strawberry Cream Pie, Strawberry Ice-Box Cake, and Strawberry Banana Bread. 

Vegan Strawberry Pie 

This recipe is a simple summer treat than traditional strawberry pie, as it calls for only a few simple ingredients. It is easy to put together last-minutely because it uses a pie crust that has already been cooked.

You can use store-bought pie crust in this easy vegan strawberry pie recipe, and the filling can be either homemade fresh strawberries or store-bought.

A slice of strawberry pie with coconut cream is a delicious way to end any dinner. Because it’s served cold, this pie is the ideal treat for spring or summer. It’s an impressive treat that’s ideal for last-minute guests, potlucks, and poolside snacking!

Why You Will Love This Pie?

  • It’s a tasty dessert! The filling for this pie is delicious and simple to prepare, and when combined with the flaky crust, the result is nothing short of sublime. The strawberry mixture can be used in a variety of other baked goods, such as a crisp or cobbler.

Picking Fresh Strawberries

Last weekend my hubby and I went to an organic strawberry farm near me to pick the last strawberries of the season. Here in Florida, the “winter strawberry capital of the world”, strawberry season is over for us while it is just beginning in California and other parts of the USA.

It is so easy to make this strawberry pie recipe. All you need is 7 ingredients, including your prebaked pie crust and coconut whipped cream. You can prepare one of my 3 vegan gluten-free pie crust recipes: Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust, Almond Flour Pie Crust, or Graham Cracker Pie Crust

For this easy strawberry pie, the filling is so simple to prepare. I decided to thicken it with cornstarch, crushed strawberries, sugar, and water. The natural flavor of the sweet strawberries was able to pop! This was the best strawberry pie I have had. My entire family enjoyed it, so it didn’t last very long at all.

Strawberry Pie Ingredients

  • Pie crust, baked or storebought: You can use my Gluten Free Vegan Pie Crust, Almond Flour Pie Crust, or Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Pie Crust You can also use a ready-made pie crust to make it very easy. (In the freezer area of Aldi, there is a pack of delicious pre-made vegan crusts.)
  • Fresh strawberries: 2 pounds of fresh strawberries are required. The best strawberries are those that are currently in season.
  • Organic cane sugar: Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, add more or less sugar.
  • Cornstarch: By this, the liquids in the pie thicken as it bakes, preventing runny filling after baking and cooling.
  • Water
  • Salt: A pinch of salt adds flavor to the pastry.
  • Coconut whipped cream: This pie is best topped with coconut whipped cream frosting, as it maintains its shape and doesn’t deflate, but you can also use any vegan whipped cream you prefer to buy.
