Light Strawberry Pie

People rave about this luscious strawberry pie. Best of all, it’s a low-sugar sensation that you won’t feel guilty eating. —Lou Wright, Rockford, Illinois

    Super easy and very delicious! I made this during the quarantine so I had to use whatever ingredients I could find in the store. Most things were not unsweetened or sugar-free but we still enjoyed the pie and will certainly make it again.

    I don't know what I did wrong, but my pies look NOTHING like the picture with the recipe. I will not be making this again. It just made a disgusting hot pink mess in my pie plates with strawberry slices.

    This is very similar to a Weight Watchers recipe that I've been making for years--minus the graham cracker crust and pineapple. This is our favorite summer dessert, so I will definitely try it with the pineapple for July 4th. We like it best without the crust and topped with light whipped topping. I've also made it with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries added to the strawberries. To the poster who asked about instant pudding, I have used both kinds and it always turns out well. I may try the cook'n'serve lemon pudding the next time I make it, too.

    I had an "extra servings size" graham crust so I upped the strawberries to 4 cups. I used regular pudding (3 3oz Vanilla Cook N Serve) and regular strawberry Jello. I drained 2 Pineapple Dole Bowls, ran them through the food processor and then drained them again. Perfect. This hit the spot on this hot June day. I will definitely give it a try with other berry/gelatin combinations. Thanks so much to Lou W for sharing the recipe!

    I prepared this pie yesterday and it is delicious. I'm always looking for recipes with low sugar for my husband. I did have a hard time finding cook and serve sugar free vanilla pudding mix but finally found some. It is an easy pie to prepare and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this pie.Volunteer Field Editor

    Is there something else besides crushed pineapple I can use?

    Easy to make on a hot summer day. Delightful dessert to enjoy at sunset with friends. Everyone loved it.

    This was a good dessert for a family dinner. I used regular pudding and jello since I can't have artificial sweeteners. I tried slicing the strawberries with my egg slicer and two of the wires broke on the first one. I guess maybe the berries were a little too hard, but I won't be trying that again.
