Most fruit icebox pies contain gelatin. Gelatin isn’t vegan (or even vegetarian), so I had to find a substitute. The secret ingredient that gets the strawberry filling to bind together in this recipe is agar agar. Agar-Agar is a vegan alternative to gelatin. It’s generally used to make jellies, puddings, and custards. It works much like regular gelatin- first, it’s brought to a boil and then you let it simmer for a few minutes. Agar agar is made from red algae, but don’t worry, there’s no seaweed taste.

I prefer to make my own graham cracker crust instead of buying the store-bought ones. Add the graham crackers to a food processor and mix until they are finely ground. Add the butter and pulse until combined. Press the crust into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish.

Add 2 cups strawberries, sugar, cranberry juice, and agar agar to a medium saucepan. Gently mash the strawberries using a potato masher. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly. Add the remaining strawberries and stir.

Pour the mixture into the pie plate and put it in the refrigerator. The pie will set in 4-6 hours.

I like to make this pie the night before, so it has plenty of time to set.

To make the whipped cream- pour the non-dairy whipping cream into a large bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Spread onto the pie using a spatula.
