This is a low calorie, no crust strawberry pie. It is made with sugar-free strawberry flavored gelatin and sugar-free vanilla pudding. It is very good! I've had the recipe for years, and to be honest, I don't remember where I got it. Garnish with light whipped topping if you like.

When using sugar free pudding mixes, I add a capful of vanilla extract (or almond or coconut, or whatever is appropriate) to take away the artificial taste. With the added vanilla, this dessert was just simply wonderful, esp considering its low calorie count. Read More

When I saw this recipe I just couldn t pass it up but after making it I wish I had. There are a couple of old adages that apply here. First you get out of something what you put into it and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. I arranged my beautiful strawberries in a lovely concentric pattern in a pretty white quiche dish. I was fairly confident at this point thinking this was going to be one pretty dessert. I mixed up and cooked the pudding/gelatin mixture as the recipe directed using the indicated cook-and-serve sugar free pudding and sugar free gelatin. It was already so thick I had to carefully smear it over the strawberries. At this point I m still hoping for the best but it s not looking good. The recipe indicates to chill this 4-6 hours. Are you kidding me? An hour later I had it cut and plopped on a dessert plate like a brick. The filling was thick congealed and rubbery not pudding-like or custard-like at all. If you can get passed the weird and unbecoming look color and consistency of this you won t be able to get passed the artificial taste or the acrid aftertaste presumably by an overabundance of sugar-free stuff. Whipped cream helped that somewhat but seriously should you need to mask the taste of your dessert? I m reluctantly giving this two stars rather than one only because the whipped cream made it edible. I so wish I could have my beautiful strawberries back. Read More

My husband and I just love this pie. It is not only delicious but low in calories. The only thing I changed was I slice the strawberries and add them to the pudding/gelatin mixture after it comes to a boil, then pour into the pie pan. This way the strawberries get a coat really well. I also have used less strawberries and add slices bananas which is great for a change. And it is also good using raspberry gelatin. Read More

Excellent, light, refreshing recipe. I substituted the cook and serve vanilla pudding mix, with the instant pudding. I waited until the gelatin had cooled then whisked in the instant kind. The recipe turned out very well. A keeper! Read More

I could not find cook and serve sugar free pudding so I used instant as a substitution. It still turned out well. This is a simple and wonderful recipe. I also used sugar free cool whip. I will be making this sugar free dessert again. Read More

I made this recipe for the holidays. My relatives who are diabetic loved this pie, and said it felt like they were eating a regular dessert. I changed the recipe slightly by using mixed berries, and put the fruit and gelatin mixture in a low fat graham cracker crust made by Keebler. I saved some of the berries and spread them on top of the gelatin for presentation. We even made one pie this week to help kick off our New Years diet. Light and refreshing. Read More

I have made this recipe a couple of times and everytime everyone raves about it. It is an awesome desert for diabetics and dieters alike. It tastes awesome! Not only that I changed it and made one that is just as good. I used orange jello and vanilla pudding and canned/drained madarine oranges it was fantastic. Every one want the recipe Read More

Unfortunately you can't escape the "after-taste" from the sugar-free products. Essentially this was just a molded gelatin salad with strawberries in it. Looked beautiful but I didn't feel like I was eating "no crust pie"---it was jell-o! As for the sugar-free ingredients if that after taste doesn't bother you go for it! I won't be making this again though. Read More
