Who doesn't love the classic Strawberry Cool Whip Pie (also known as strawberry fluff pie)! So easy to make with just a few simple ingredients, strawberry Jello, Cool Whip, Greek yogurt and graham cracker crust.
Why I love this recipe
• Pink strawberry pie is a family favorite. And this delicious dessert is so simple to make.
• Cool Whip pie is total comfort food for me. And I absolutely LOVE the pink color!
• So light and refreshing with a sweet berry flavor. Perfect for a hot Summer day.
• You don't have to turn on the oven to make this delicious strawberry jello pie. It's no-bake baby!
Greek Yogurt - This isn't in the original recipe. I added it so there would be some protein. You can omit if you wish and replace with Cool Whip.
Strawberry Gelatin - I used strawberry Jell-o but you can use your favorite brand. You could also try different flavors such as raspberry, cherry or orange.
Thawed Cool Whip - Any brand of frozen whipped topping will work in this recipe. Just make sure it is thawed before using.
Graham Cracker Crust - Oops, I forgot to put it in the photo. You can use a premade graham cracker crust (I used a gluten free graham cracker crust - Midel brand).
how to make this recipe
- In a large bowl, add ½ cup boiling water to strawberry jello powder, stir until dissolved. Add 1 cup ice cubes and stir.
- Then add ½ of an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip and 1 cup Greek yogurt to the gelatin mixture and whisk together with a wire whisk.
- Keep whisking jello mixture until it's smooth and creamy.
- Pour gelatin cool whip mixture into a ready made graham cracker crust. Refrigerate 4 hours.
• Garnish pie with fresh berries such as sliced strawberries.
• If you want to make a homemade crust, mix together 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs, ⅓ cup granulated sugar and 6 tablespoons melted butter. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes at 350°F. Let cool.
