No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie (Easy Recipe)

By  | 

This Strawberry Jello Pie is the perfect cool and creamy treat to enjoy.

Grab Cool Whip, Jello and a graham cracker crust and you’re ready to make this quick jello pie. It’s the perfect comfort food after a long day or to serve last-minute guests. I especially love it on a hot summer day. Although I’ll happily eat this delicious strawberry jello pie all year round.

There is something about a cool Jello pie that is so comforting and delicious, and if you’ve never made one it’s shockingly easy to make. This pink Strawberry pie with Jello is the perfect no bake dessert for guests or a special weeknight supper. It boasts a fresh flavor with an easy filling nestled in a graham cracker crust. It’s a simple homemade offering at it’s best, just like my strawberry cheesecake pie or my no bake pumpkin pie.

No Bake Jello Pie:

When fresh strawberries are in season, I love baking with strawberries.

This is a quick recipe that kids can help make and is perfect for when you want something sweet and delicious but don’t want to be spending too much time in the kitchen.

It’s no-bake — so it’s great if you’re already using the oven for something else or if you just want to avoid turning on the oven!

It does take a while to set so ensure that you give yourself a good 5 hours before you want to enjoy this easy pie with your loved ones.

If you’re not a huge fan of strawberry flavoring, you can swap that out for any Jello flavor you’d prefer!

My boys love making it with other flavors so they can also get other colors. πŸ˜‰ They think blue or green pie is pretty magical. It makes them so happy, I let them get creative and experiment with their own jello pie recipes.

You could also top it with fresh strawberries (or other fruit) for an extra touch and burst of flavor.

Of course, my guys also pile on the Cool Whip on top of the pie before serving as well. I’m pretty sure Cool Whip is one of their favorite foods!

How to Make a Strawberry Jello Pie

Boil your water as you prepare your other ingredients.

Stir together the boiling water and strawberry Jello for two minutes until completely dissolved.

Add the ice cold water to the gelatin mixture and stir until slightly thickened.

Then whisk in 2 cups Cool Whip until well blended.

Smooth out into the prepared pie shell and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight before serving.

How to Serve a Strawberry Jello Pie

I cut generous slices and serve cold, topped with dollops of Cool Whip or whipped cream. A bright, fresh cherry on top is the perfect finish before serving.

You could also top with other fresh fruit, like strawberries.

If you have any pie leftover, just pop back in the fridge or freezer to keep cool until serving more.

My boys love the consistency and flavor. They could easily devour the whole pie in one sitting because they enjoy it so much. And I’ll let them as thanks for a job well done helping mama in the kitchen.

I hope your family enjoys this easy and yummy strawberry Jello pie as much as we do.

      The recipe calls for 2 cups of Cool Whip, so we picked up the 16-ounce tub. Enjoy!

    Wow! Beautiful dessert! I’ll have to find gluten-free graham cracker crumbs, but I’m definitely going to make this when I do.

    Can you use sugar free jello and plain greek yogurt in place of the whip cream?

      I haven’t tried it that way, so it might change the consistency but it’d be worth a shot!

        I make this frequently with sugar free jello, light cool whip. Lessens the sugar / calorie count.

    It was still liquid after 30mins in fridge. It’s supposed to be solid right before putting in the crust correct?

    • Layne Henderson

      February 18, 2019 at 1:08 pm

      You don’t want it to be solid because you need to pour into the crust. You put it in the fridge for 30 minutes and then pour into the crust to refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Good luck!

    In order to get this to settle quicker, could part of that four hours be in the freezer instead of the fridge? I love this recipe, by the way. I just find that it usually isn’t quite ready after only four hours and this time I forgot to make it the night prior.
