Low Carb Keto Strawberry Pie
"Let me take you down cause I'm going to... Strawberry Fields."
I made a strawberry pie today, so I decided to get my Beatles on. It turns out that "Strawberry Fields Forever" is even trippier than I remembered.
The Beatles video below is actually one of the first music videos ever made.
It revolved around this wild looking instrument called a Mellotron. It was a keyboard that triggered loops of recorded taped instruments at different pitches. It's similar to the idea of a synthesizer except it plays actual recordings of the instruments. It made for this trippy, warbley flute sound. Very groovy.
Strawberries are in season right now so I've been snatching them up at the farmer's market. Local farm grown strawberries are just the best. They are so much more flavorful than the ones you buy at the grocery store. They're like little candies.
But any kind of strawberry is good in this Low Carb Keto Strawberry Pie.
To make the pie, you start with an almond and coconut flour crust. Then you make a glazed strawberry filling using fresh strawberries and Sugar Free Strawberry Jello. And that's about it. You'll have a tasty low carb strawberry pie with only 5g net carb per slice. Very groovy indeed.
Strawberry fields forever!
