Lou Wright’s luscious strawberry dessert is a pretty after-supper sweet. “People rave about this pie,” she says from Rockford, Illinois. And best of all, it’s a low-sugar sensation that you won’t feel one bit guilty to eat.

"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.

"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."
