Fruit pies are the perfect dessert as we head into warmer weather. For particularly warm days, enjoy a tart and refreshing berry or key lime pie. For days when you want something a little more hearty, try a banana cream pie! These pies don’t require any dairy and taste just as good, if not so much better than their non-vegan counterparts. Give these vegan fruit pies a try to see for yourself!

Many people think that a gluten-free and vegan pie crust is boring and bland. But this pie crust is anything but. It is satisfying, delicious, and healthy. The crust is neither heavy nor greasy and it’s full of flavor. It has a rich wholesome nutty taste and a crumbly-crispy texture. It also holds well together and can be the base for all sorts of fruit pies, pecan pies, or even cream or pumpkin pies. In fact, the crust is just as tasty as the topping. It also handles well and is all made in the bowl of a food processor. This Plum Pie by Julie Zimmer is so tasty!
