Easy Strawberry Pie
 
Gosh, this is good..and we love it..Although it does have the
dreaded Equal in it...but it's great.


9 inch pie pan

Fill pie pan 1/2 to 3/4 full of chunked fresh strawberries

In a saucepan: Mix one Cook N Serve Sugar Free vanilla pudding
mix...a small one
One small Sugar Free strawberry jello
1 1/4 cups of water

Mix all well..with a whisk and bring to boil...Then pour over the
strawberries in the pie pan..Refrigerate until set..Slice like you
would a pie..and serve with topping..

any idea on carb count? sounds divine and I have two buckets of fresh strawberries sitting at my feet!

CarolynF 04-30-2004 05:31 PM

I think it all depends on how many strawberries you use..The
pudding mix has about 4 for 1/4 box..and you don't use milk..so
it would be very little for the whole recipe..just depending on
how many strawberries you would use..:)

I arbitrarily chose 4 cups strawberries and plugged the ingredients into MasterCook.

I just thought of something else. This would be GREAT with a graham cracker crust
to take to summer potlucks and picnics and stuff.

And, as luck would have it, I just happen to have a graham cracker crust recipe.

I think this is my Cinco de Mayo dessert (I know it isn't Mexican...but Strawberries are in season!!)

kip 05-02-2004 02:40 PM

This sounds so good, thank you. :)

woodswoman 05-03-2004 05:10 PM

Those numbers seem too good to be true!! Thanks, Carolyn, that one's definitely a keeper. :)

NorthernNisse 05-03-2004 06:31 PM

This looks GOOD! I think I will try it tomorrow after I make a stop at the grocery store. I don't usually use the packaged pudding mix, but this recipe stretches it out pretty far and I need something new. Strawberries are wonderful right now. :) Thanks for posting.

rrrhan 05-04-2004 02:57 PM

I am going to make this with white chocolate pudding mix. I will let you know how it turns out!

CarolynF 05-04-2004 03:19 PM

I love that "crust"...but this is sooooooooooooooo easy to
do without the crust..LOL...

Now..What other flavors would be good?? Do they make a sugar
free peach jello??? so you could have peaches in it?? Or...
raspberries would be wonderful..

Or: Make a small amount and put it on top of cheesecake or
custard pie..

How was the white chocolate pudding???

NorthernNisse 05-04-2004 03:58 PM

This recipe turned out to be quite delightful. Very nice, but as always on the first time around, I ate too much! :) I passed the recipe out to at least 6 low carbers at work today. They were very excited.

I will be curious about the white chocolate, because I think that only comes in instant Jello. The only boil kind of SF pudding is vanilla and chocolate....that's how it is around here anyway.

The peach idea is fabulous and they just started making peach SF Jello a couple months ago. I bet that would be delicious! Raspberry would be nice too...you could also do mixed berries with the raspberry Jello.

Thanks again for posting. This was really good.

rrrhan 05-04-2004 04:21 PM

white chocolate/kiwi strawberry
 
I havent actually eaten a slice yet, but I did taste it and its YUMMY!

I cooked the jellos just like the recipe calls for but didnt let it come to a full boil because it was already thick.

This is an awesome treat!

Thanks

Hey...how about strawberry and rhubarb pie with this filling??

I think you could cook the rhubarb in some water...to soften
it...then add the pudding/jello mix..and pour it over the strawberries...What do you think?

mmorris 05-05-2004 05:55 AM

Yummy:)

FurkidsMom 05-05-2004 07:27 AM

I just put mine in the refrig. I have one question - How will this slice? Will it make nice slices or globs?? Not that tasty globs are bad...but this is for company!! ;)

Blacknocream 05-05-2004 07:30 AM

yummy bump!

CarolynF 05-05-2004 07:33 AM

It slices just like pie...It is like a thicker jello consistency..Of course
it depends on the amount of strawberries in your pie..and if
you don't have enough jello mixture to hold them together..or if
you put too many strawberries in you might be a little more globby..I think you will be pleasantly surprised...:)

You could add some toasted almonds to put on top of the
whipped topping..or just a half of a strawberry for color..

Let me know how they like it..:)

rrrhan 05-05-2004 07:41 AM

OH! this is so good. So fresh tasting. I just had a slice for breakfast. It slices beautifully. I dont think this pie will last very long!

jewel1 05-05-2004 04:13 PM

Instead of the pie plate...I bet these would also be nice as a parfait...

Spoon a strawberry jello layer into a goblet and alternate with layers of SF whipped cream....

Or be lazy like me and just put whipped cream on top.

:)

parrotchic 05-05-2004 04:25 PM

CarolynF, I made this today and just had a slice with whipped cream on top.:up: Oh my this pie is so good! Just perfect for the summer months and so simple to make. Thanks for sharing:hugs:

FurkidsMom 05-05-2004 07:00 PM

This was sooo good! I made it in a quiche dish and it made 8 servings. It was perfect for every kind of diet that my guests were on too!!!
I think this is tomorrow's breakfast! Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

mama-dodge 05-06-2004 09:33 AM

CarolynF 05-06-2004 08:51 PM

You're welcome everyone...I haven't made my strawberry rhubarb
one..but I'm going to try it tomorrow..I'll let you know..;)

GL 05-07-2004 06:50 PM

This was awesome!!!:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

KLO1 05-07-2004 07:42 PM

Made this for my husbands B-day and oh boy is it ever good. I think the next time I'll try blueberries, lemon jello, and lemon pudding. The strawberry/rhubarb sounds really good too! Great recipe, thanks so much for sharing it with us.

SCOTTSDALEJULIE 05-09-2004 09:54 AM

This was fantastic! I only had instant pudding mix, white chocolate, so I did the jello on the stove, added the pudding mix, and added one cup of LC milk. OMG it is so fresh tasting and so heavenly. Thanks caroline, It was great. Julie

Blacknocream 05-09-2004 01:31 PM

Has anyone else tried this adding LC Milk with the Cook and Serve Pudding? How was your results?

I am going to make this pie this weekend for a Housewarming Party that I am attending!

argo2d 05-09-2004 09:43 PM

i use LC milk to make pudding, but not the instant pudding mix... too many starches etc

michele d. 05-10-2004 05:40 AM

THANKS CAROLYN!
 
I had this with a scoop of strawberry ice cream and chocolate sauce with whipped cream. It was almost sinful! Thanks again.
