Strawberry Pie THM-S

Nothing says summer like a freshly picked, sun-kissed strawberry. As a young teen I spent many hours picking strawberries for produce stand. Strawberries are the first berries to ripen followed by raspberries a few week later. This strawberry pie is a makeover of an old family favorite. It pie never last long at our house and I am sure it won’t at yours either. My regular recipe asked for strawberry jello but I have substituted Strawberry Kool Aid and unflavored gelatin to be able to make it sugar-free.

1 cup of strawberries had only 49 calories and is rich in Vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. My garden plot has always had room for strawberry bed. They are very easy to grow and take very little maintenance besides weeding and fertilizer. I prefer to use glass pie pans but this time I used an old metal pie pan that was my mother’s. It has a very well used look and I really wonder how many pies were baked in it over the years. My Ninja Food Processor does a great job mixing pie crust and I wouldn’t want to do without it.

This is another on of my favorite kitchen tools. I use it every day. It is so handy to make whipped cream for this pie.
I have a mixer just like this for 28 years already. It still works great.

  1. Just so you know, your link for Kool Aide goes to CHERRY flavored.

    Thanks for the recipe! I’ll be making it just as soon as I can but ONE packet of Kool Aide (we stopped buying it over 25 years ago). That way the younger children won’t begin drinking my stash! (We have 13 children with only the last 3 at home now.)

    Thank you for your recipes!
