I made two of these pies the other night. I wanted to make something for my friend and her husband (He is a diabetic -loves sweets.). He has been very sick. since I didn't want to make a heavy, sugar-laden pie, I ended up making two pies, one sweetened with sugar-free gelatin; and the other one with regularly, sweetened gelatin.

This is a light pie with only 4 ingredients plus a graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust.

Their preacher came to visit and also is a diabetic. They all enjoyed the pie! I enjoyed making it (and having a slice) It's EASY, QUICK -and light! Pie anyone??

Prep:

15 Min

Ingredients

3 oz
gelatin (sweetened with or without sugar)
10 oz
frozen and/or strawberries (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 c
minature marshmellows
1 c
heavy whipping cream, whipped
1
graham cracker pie crust (or chocolate pie crust)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dissolve a 3 ounce package of gelatin in one cup of boiling water. For your needs and likes, choose to use gelatin sweetened with sugar, or sugar-free (sweetened with Splenda or other artificial sweetener.)
2
Add 10 ounce of frozen strawberries or a combination of fresh and frozen. You can use sweetened or unsweetened. If you use fresh strawberries, don't sweeten.

Stir well until the strawberries separate (if frozen) and gelatin mixture thickens.
3
Fold in 2 cups of mini marshmallows. NOTE: If a diabetic, you may need to do an exchange for the marshmallows. If using the sugar-free gelatin, they are the only ingredient that contains sugar (and there would be a smidgen in the cookie crust.) If you didn't want to use a bought crust that contains sugar -you can easily make your own crust without any sugar or sweetener.

You be the judge on what you can and can't have.
4
Fold in 1 cup of whipped heavy (whipping) cream.
5
Pour into a 9-inch cookie crust -graham or chocolate cookie.
6
Decorate with sliced fresh strawberries, if desired. Chill until firm.
7
Enjoy a slice of strawberry marshmallow pie! Yummy! Yummy!
