My mom was a weight watcher and she made this pie all the time. It was really very good!!! Made me think of the Shoney's Strawberry Pie. If this strawberry pie is not my favorite low-calorie dessert recipe, it’s definitely one of my favorites. The recipe calls for Equal and that's what my mother always used. I prefer Splenda.

NOTE: Betty Warren added up the WW points, this is what she came up with. Strawberries are free, sugar free Jello is free, Argo Starch is 1 point for each Tbsp. (2) and I used Reduced fat graham cracker crust Redi Crust,(20) entire crust is 20 points. Lite cool whip is 1 point for each Tbsp. 1 tbsp on each piece(6). 28 points for entire pie or 6 servings less than 5 points each.

THANK YOU BETTY WARREN!!
