If you're looking for a cool creamy easy pie, this is it!


Whether you make a strawberry cream pie, raspberry, cherry, banana or even peach you can create a delicious confection with just a few ingredients.


This is one of the easiest desserts you'll find, and everyone I make it for raves about it.


Strawberry seems to be the top flavor in our home, but I have made these cream pies with just about every fresh fruit there is.


This pie doesn't have any cream cheese or sour cream in it.


The mixture is a blend of pudding and jello and so light with the addition of whipped cream.


I will give you some delicious ideas in this article below.


The pie is light with just a few steps of cooking that will take virtually more time in the refrigerator than with cooking time.


Fresh fruits are in abundance all summer long and you can enjoy your favorites by getting creative additions.


I love that you can even make this pie festive with colors of a Holiday theme, like a Patriotic theme by adding blueberries and more whipped cream.


This was so exciting to see how it turned out in flavor, ease, and with a few pantry ingredients, this will be your new favorite recipe for dessert.


Not only is this strawberry cream pie delicious to eat, it really is quite pretty to serve.


Scroll down and print it off once you see the ingredients, I know you're going to want to make this one ASAP!

Fun Creations



Get creative with this pie, the skies the limit and you can use any fruits with the basic recipe mixture you choose.


You could even do a fruit medley which would be superb!


If you've never checked all the jello flavors out there in your markets, you will be so surprised to see so many flavors.


Here are some other jello flavors I have tried: blackberry, apricot, mango, strawberry banana, orange, just to name a few!


Just get the same fruits as the jello you choose and follow this recipe.

Pie Crust



Not a baker? No problem, just use a deep dish store-bought pie crust found in the frozen food sections of your grocery store.


You can also use the refrigerated pie crust found in the dairy case.


If you love to bake then try my mom's recipe for pie crust, it's so flaky and a delicious addition for this pie.


Just remember to poke holes in the bottom of the crust before baking so it doesn't puff up while baking or use pie weights.

The Filling



This is one pie filling with a light texture that doesn't have cream cheese in it.


The fruit, whipped cream and jello mixture blend perfectly together to give this pie the perfect sweetness.


It's not overly sweet and when cut it's held together perfectly, without getting watery in any way.


The pie firms up nicely with the addition of the pudding in it.

Off Season



You can mix and match flavors as I said before and I have made another combination that I really like for fall.


I found one of my favorite apple jellos by a jolly rancher brand and used that with vanilla pudding, the same recipe instructions below, just using fresh apples in it.


I love how easy this is with so little cooking involved, just the crust is baked and the mixture has to come to a boil.


The refrigerator does the rest of the work!

The Kids Fight Over the Bowl!



Well, I said kids, but they are really grown men now, funny how that seems to happen overnight.


My two boys went from being little to having a family of their own in a blink of an eye!


The first time I made this, after folding in the whipped cream and pouring the mixture in the pie shell there were remnants left in the bowl.


I made the mistake of asking one of my boys to test it out and he said it was the best pie he ever tasted with strawberries in it besides shortcake!


The other one wanted a taste but he had licked the bowl clean so fast there wasn't a drop left in it.

Best Family Dessert!

.

When all the men in my family love this jello style dessert, I was shocked


That was a tell-tale sign I hit the jackpot of desserts.


After I put the pie together and made the pretty arrangement on top with some mint leaves, they were afraid I wasn't going to cut it up!


Luckily it was only for my photos and they were happy to dive into that pie after dinner and ruin how pretty it looked!


I really didn't want to take a photo of the empty tin, you get the picture!

Make two it goes quick!



Needless to say, the pie was gone that night for dessert with 3 grown men and my husband was the third who loved it!


They each had two large pieces!


I did get a fork full out of it, sigh.

Sugar-Free Version



If you're still not convinced how great this recipe is, just give it a try once, taste it and I am willing to bet you will be excited to see how delicious it turns out.


First time I read the ingredients I was skeptical, now for years we all totally love love love this recipe.


I sure hope you and your family will love this strawberry cream pie too!


Last but not least, this can be all made SUGAR-FREE, just substitute all sugar-free ingredients
(jello, pudding, whipped cream) this recipe calls for.


As for the crust omit the white flour and make a lower carb wheat pie crust.


For a completely no flour recipe try using this recipe 1 1/2 cups almond flour, 1/4 cup sweetener like Truvia or Stevia, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup butter melted. Mix together. Press into a pie plate, prick holes in the crust and bake on 335 degrees until browned.

Cool and fill as directed in the recipe card.



This is the same recipe for strawberry cream pie using pineapple jello, vanilla pudding and whipping cream. This pineapple pie is in a deliciously baked pie crust filled with that pineapple filling and topped with crushed pineapple



One of my Favorite Cream Pies



Using pineapple jello, whipped topping and vanilla pudding topped with crushed pineapple!


Pineapple Cream Pie! Enjoy everyone!


A tropical delight!


You can even add a little coconut on top and a few maraschino cherries!


Hope I gave you some great ideas for a fabulous summer dessert!


Like I said before get creative with your favorite flavors and create a new pie every time!
