There's plenty of sweet berry flavor in this refreshing dessert. Made with sugar-free gelatin and a graham cracker crust, the summery pie is easy to fix and attractive enough to serve to guests. I sometimes substitute fresh peaches and peach gelatin. —D. Smith, Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania.

"I followed this exactly as is EXCEPT I used regular strawberry jello and regular graham cracker crust (not sugar free). Our little family of 4 nearly finished this pie in one sitting. So good and super easy to make. I can't wait to make this for my Mom who is mindful of her sugar levels."

"Light and refreshing and so easy to make!! My husband is diabetic and also needs to watch sodium intake. One slice of pie was only 2 carb choices--far less than most other desserts. I did use real whipped cream instead of whipped topping, which neither of us cares for, and it made for a rich-tasting dessert that's pretty and healthy. I liked the idea of an earlier poster who served it in a parfait glass. You could layer the strawberries with chunks of angel food cake, shortcake or pound cake and it would look and taste great with minimal fuss on your part. Can't wait to take advantage of the yummy strawberries in season and try this again!"
