Oh Strawberry Cream Pie, how I love thee!
Strawberries are EVERYWHERE in the summer months. You can find them at your local grocery stores (usually on sale), at Farmer’s Markets or even better, pick them yourself! I typically buy mine at the grocery store. I got two cartons the other day for $4. My kids eat strawberries like they are going out of style. I was amazed that I had any left for this recipe.
Well, I did put a note on the package that said, “Don’t touch!”. Thankfully, they listened to me and I was able to make this luscious, dreamy Strawberry Cream Pie. Maybe it should be called Strawberry Dream Pie because it’s like a dream come true.
Strawberry Cream Pie
It’s light, creamy, sweet and is like pure heaven in your mouth. Strawberry lovers will go nuts over this easy pie recipe. Seriously, it’s soooo good.
It’s not entirely no-bake though because you do have to cook the pie crust. I kept things simple and used a frozen pie shell that I could bake at home. I recommend buying the deep dish pie shell so you have more room for that heavenly strawberry filling.
It has both strawberry Jello and vanilla pudding mix as well as loads of Cool Whip to give it that creamy texture. Sliced strawberries are mixed throughout.
It may not be the healthiest dessert, but oh well. Indulge a little!
How to Make Strawberry Cream Pie
It’s very simple to make this summer pie. To start, add the Jello, vanilla pudding mix, water and lemon juice to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until it comes to a boil and then remove from heat. Pour the mixture into a bowl and chill in the fridge until it thickens up. I let mine sit a couple hours.
Once it’s ready, fold in Cool Whip and stir in the sliced strawberries. You can make your own homemade stabilized whipped cream if you don’t have Cool Whip.
Pour the mixture into your prepared pie shell and chill in the fridge until set. I left mine overnight so we could enjoy it the next day.
Garnish with a dollop of Cool Whip and more strawberries if you like!
