Reviews for Light Strawberry Pie
"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?"
"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."
"easy and good. I sliced the strawberies with my egg slicer"
"It was real refreshing in our weather with a heat index of 105! Loved it!"
"Very easy and very good. Also tried using 2 c. fresh peach slices, 1 c. fresh blueberries with sugar free peach jello....also very good. Will make this again and again."
