Easy, No Bake Strawberry Pie

Easy, No Bake Strawberry Pie

Don’t revoke my foodie card. I know this recipe contains things that I don’t normally cook with like Cool Whip and pre-made graham cracker crusts BUT trust me….this strawberry pie is good. No, wait, it is GOOD. So good that when I took it to a party recently, I had a LOT of complements. Yep. Loads.

You see, this is the pie that my Granny took to church lunches. Our church had lunches after services for all kinds of occasions. Tables and tables of food. Delicious, delicious food. These church lunches have such fond memories for me. The entire church was like extended family for me. Okay…they really were family but still.

All the women getting the food ready in the fellowship hall, pouring sweet tea, cutting the cakes and pies. Did I mention that there was always a table FULL of desserts? Yep…full.

The great thing was that my mom let me have more than one thing. It was awesome. My Granny made the best desserts so I always made sure to get a piece of her dessert first and then branch out from there. Her strawberry pie was high on her list of desserts to take and I never, ever complained. This is hands down my favorite pie that she made.

So, yes, it contains processed ingredients and I really should try to reformulate the recipe with real whipped cream. Until then, make this pie. You will not regret it and it will meet with rave reviews.

Process

Mix the lemon juice and condensed milk

In a medium bowl, mix together the condensed milk and lemon juice until completely mixed and thickened.

Fold in the Cool Whip

Mix in Cool Whip until completely mixed.

Fold in Food Coloring and Strawberries

Add red food coloring to get a nice pink color (can be omitted if you like). Fold in strawberries. Pour half of the strawberry mixture in to each of the pie crusts.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Could this be made with the strawberry gel as opposed to actual fruit?

If your strawberry gel/jello was quite firm, I don't see why not.

I've never tried it but I bet you can. Also check out my Millionaire Pie recipe that uses the same base but with pineapple, peaches and mandarin oranges!

If it's no bake, it's for me! I love using fresh from Florida strawberries in my recipes.

I've always made this pie and froze it for picnics. The only difference is I don't use the milk and lemon juice, I use 2 containers of yogurt and the fruit that matches it, like blueberry, strawberry or peach, what ever is in season.

Looks delish and I love the history with this dish. So fun to remake those classic favourites!
