We adore fruit. We love it raw, and we love to cook with it. We love that it’s “nature’s candy.” It’s sweet and delicious. The high amount of fiber in many fruits allows people with blood sugar concerns to enjoy them without worrying about spikes.
Every time we have an ad for Glucocil with a picture of a fruit pie, we receive the same comments. People always tell us that folks with blood sugar concerns can’t eat fruit pies. We always feel disappointed when we see those comments because they simply aren’t true, and it shows that people are missing out on delicious desserts that won’t upset their blood sugar. In the past, we have shared recipes for meringue pies. And we have featured classic American pies. In honor of National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day, we’re sharing four wonderful low-carb fruit pie recipes!
We love this apple pie! Apple Pies are notoriously hard to make low-carb. This one uses Granny Smith apples to lower the sugar content. And it’s not a pie with a goopy filling. Some people might like that; others might want to move on to another option on our list. We think this is a delicious option for anyone who loves the flavor of apple pie but hates all the carbs! A slice has 302 calories and seven grams of net carbs. Get the recipe.
Fruit and custard pies are scrumptious. This one is made with a pressed crust, and the custard is made in a blender. That makes the prep work just 10 minutes! You don’t have to pre-cook the custard! That makes this recipe a snap! It makes a creamy soft pie. Made with almond and coconut flours, it stays low in carbs while being delicious! A serving has 247.9 calories, nine grams of carbs and 4.6 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
The flavor combo of strawberry rhubarb is hard to beat. This pie has a flaky crust and a gooey filling! And, unlike a traditional strawberry rhubarb pie with 44 net carbs, this one won’t upset your blood sugar! The crust is a fat head dough. This isn’t a pie to eat hot as the center needs to cool to be gooey instead of wet. It’s best served cool or even cold. Don’t cut into it when it’s still warm from the oven! A serving has 258 calories, 11.6 grams of carbs and 5.1 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
Both strawberries and blueberries are in season. Of course, you can always use the frozen kind year-round. But we love cooking with fresh produce at its peak, so this pie is perfect right now! We love the beautiful lattice crust in the pictures of this recipe. But, we’ll be honest, while it looks pretty, it’s so much work, especially with this delicate dough! The crust is excellent any way you do it. If you do a full lid, just be sure to leave steam vents. A serving has 300 calories, 16 grams of carbs and six grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
