Perfect Keto Kickstart Guide

Keto Berry Cheese Pie

Obviously, on a low carb keto diet, regular pie is out of the question. Don’t even get me started on the side-effects that gluten has on our health.

So, what’s a girl to do? Well, create a deliciously simple low carb pie of course! One that would have even a skeptic believing in this lifestyle. That’s what I hope this easy keto berry cheese pie will do.

I have a large mulberry tree in my backyard that my mother-in-love planted years ago. She truly had a passion for gardening but her number one rule was that whatever she planted needed to be something we could consume.

She was a very practical woman and although she now lives in heaven, I cherish her many words of wisdom and keep them close to my heart.

With that being said, my hubby didn’t inherit her gardening traits.

LOL, I think he feels we have an obligation to feed the many birds that visit our backyard with this ginormous mulberry tree; or maybe he just didn’t want to tackle trimming it back every year. Either way, when the mulberry season comes this girl takes full advantage of free organic berries.

Benefits Of Mulberries

Not familiar with mulberries? Well, mulberry trees grow throughout the eastern half of the United States and in many cases in the wild.

  • The flavor of a mulberry is a cross between blueberry and raspberries. T
  • They are also very high in vitamin C, 61% of the RDA
  • Mulberries are high in iron. It has 23% of the RDA for iron
  • They are also high in antioxidants and phytochemicals.

That’s a lot of nutrition in a little serving of mulberries. Which is why I love having these berries for as long as the season lasts.

Creating A Double Crust Keto Pie

Lately, I had been craving pie. Specifically, I  was missing traditional high carb pie crust. I know there are some people who really don’t care for the crust on a pie, but I truly feel it’s the best part and I was really craving pie crust.

That craving for pie is what pushed me to pull up out my apron and create a keto berry pie, that featured not one crust but two crusts.

I wanted to create a pie that had a double crust because I wanted an excuse to enjoy as much crust as possible; just keeping it real folks! But that is the truth, my friends.

Keto Berries and Cream

While coming up with this recipe I thought that it would be nice to add a cream cheese layer to this low carb keto berry pie. I didn’t really want cheesecake layer, although that would have been tasty too. But what I wanted was something to complement the berry flavor but not compete with it.

I wanted the mulberries to be center stage in this keto berry pie.

I decided to use Neufchâtel cream cheese because it’s a little sweeter than regular cream cheese and has fewer carbs; go figure. You can certainly use regular cream cheese if you can’t readily find Neufchâtel cheese.

Of course, not everyone is blessed to have a mulberry tree, so feel free to substitute the mulberries with any other low carb berry of your choice.

Easy Keto Recipes Are Must

I’m a real fan of keeping the keto diet easy. Which is why my keto recipes are simple to recreate. I aim to create low carb keto recipes with ingredients that are readily available and that don’t require endless steps.

Frankly, when I see a recipe that has lots of difficult to acquire ingredients or too many steps I just move on.

One of the main reasons I began to create my own recipes, was because I knew there had to be an easier, less expensive way to convert high carb favorites into delicious low carb options.

Probably, what will take the most effort in this recipe is making the crust. This low carb nut-free crust is one that I use whenever I want to make pie and it’s what I used to make a mock apple pie and my blueberry pie.

It has a perfect mouthfeel and tastes as close to a real crust as you can get. It’s a delicate crust that needs a gentle touch when using.  However, don’t let that stress you because if a crack occurs all you have to do is simply pat the dough to smooth it out perfectly.

How To Make A Keto Berry Pie

Making a keto berry pie that features both a top and bottom crust is worth the little extra effort. In order to ensure that you have the necessary items and technique, I’m going to list the ingredients you’ll need and walk you through the recipe.

Keto Berry Cheese Pie Ingredients

Keto Pie Crust

  • 1 cup of unsalted butter melted and cooled. You can also use coconut oil rather than butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of cold water

Keto Berry Filling 

  • 1 ½ cups of fresh berries (I used mulberries)
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar substitute
  • 8 ounces of room temperature neufchâtel cream cheese or regular cream cheese

Keto Berry Cheese Pie Directions

Keto Coconut Flour Crust Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt and set aside.
  • To the dry ingredients add the 4 eggs, melted and cooled butter, and a tablespoon of cold water.
  • Mix all the ingredients together of gently until dough forms.
  • Divide dough in half to make the top and bottom layers of pie crust.
  • Roll out each dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Transfer one of the crusts into a 9-inch pie pan. Being careful to smooth out any cracks.(Note: the crust is fragile and it will crack easily. However, it is also very forgiving and patting the dough will bring it together easily).

Keto Cream Cheese And Berry Filling

  • Next, add the cream cheese layer to the bottom of the crust. The cream cheese needs to be soft so that it spreads easily and doesn’t tear the bottom crust.
  • To the cream cheese layer add the 1 1/2 cups of fresh berries that have been sprinkled with two tablespoons of sugar substitute.
  • Once both the cheese and berries have been added to the pie you can then add the top crust.
  • Make sure you add several slits at the top of the pie to allow the crust to vent.

Baking Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Bake the keto berry pie for 25 minutes until the top crust is lightly browned.
  • Allow the pie to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

Pie can be served cold or warm. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

  1. I'm on the "eat fat burn fat" bandwagon now too! Here's a low-carb high fat treat I came up with: Mix a single-serve pack of Justin's nut butter with a scoop of cream cheese and some finely chopped pecans. (It tastes kind of like cheesecake.) Bon appetit!
