• Strawberry Jello Pie

    Need a simple, delicious, light, low-fat dessert ? This light strawberry pie blends smooth creamy cool-whip with sweet strawberries in a simple 1-bowl recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.

    5 Fresh Strawberries, wash & Cut into chunks (Optional)
    1 -3oz pkg strawberry jello
    1 8 oz container Cool-Whip
    1 graham cracker pie crust
    1/2 c. boiling water
    1 c. ice cold water

    Sprinkle the strawberry chunks over the bottom of the prepared graham cracker pie crust, set aside. In a medium
    size bowl, dissolve the strawberry jello in 1/2 c. boiling water, until granules of sugar no longer appear on the spoon. Immediately add 1 c. Ice Water, stirring well, fold in 1 full container of Cool-Whip.

    Pour into pie crust over the chopped strawberries. Refrigerate at least 1 hour prior to serving. The total prep time for this recipe is less than 10 minutes.

    To get the Layered look, as pictured above, increase the amount of boiling water to 1 c. (instead of 1/2 cup).

    Please note, do not use store brand (generic) cool-whip in this recipe as it will separate and create a pool of oil in the bottom of your pie crust, leaving
    yellow oozing mess.

      Hi there,

      I'm from little old New Zealand at the bottom of the world, and we don't get cool whip here. I've looked and just can't seem to find it. I was wondering if there was an alternative to it or a way to make it?

      I've heard that it's similar to our whipped cream, but I'm not so certain about that. If anyone can help me I would be most grateful!
