Is it a Keeper?
Yes, yes, yes!!! This pie is a great dessert for hot, summer nights! It’s cool, fluffy and light. Perfection! And, it’s an easy dessert to whip up when you find out you’re getting unexpected company!
It’s so easy to make variations on this recipe too! My MIL did the strawberry version, like the recipe called for, but then, she made a pineapple version that was just as good! She used Island Pineapple Jello, Pina Colada yogurt and added a small can of drained crushed pineapple!
I love the idea of adding fruit to the pie too! Next time, I’ll add chopped fresh strawberries!
As we were devouring our dessert, we were discussing the different variations that might be good, such as:
- Orange Jello/Creamsicle Yogurt/Mandarin oranges
- Cherry Jello/Cherry Yogurt/Chopped fresh cherries
- Raspberry Jello/Raspberry Yogurt/Fresh raspberries
- Lemon Jello/Lemon Yogurt
- Peach Jello/Peach Yogurt/Chopped fresh peaches
Or, you could mix up the crusts by using an Oreo crust or a shortbread crust!
This recipe is just so versatile! You can make whatever your family loves!
Next time, when I make it, I’m going to use sugar-free Jello, yogurt and Cool Whip. It will be a great treat for my diabetic grandmother!
