    My mouth is texture sensitive. Can anyone tell me a little bout the texture. Applesauce consistency, firm, like jello with lumps. Sounds good want to try it but don't know. ty

    To save a ton of calories, make this delicious recipe as is but do not pour into pie shell! Instead, put in a nice bowl, refrigerate and serve with low-fat whipped topping when set. It is still yummy!

    Strawberry pineapple pie is delicious and easily made. The only thing I would not include is the tapioca, as some of my children are deathly allergic to it and I will not hurt them that way. This pie is a keeper, though, and definitely going in my recipe box.
