Enjoy!

Okay, well, I don't think that I have ever shared a recipe on my blog so here is a first!
I originally found this recipe on My "Losing" Motivation and she found it on another blog that I have recently started reading called Honey, I shrank myself!. I made a change to the amount of strawberries because I didn't have that many and well, I don't really think you need that many. Anyway, this is great! I hope you will try it and let me know what you think.

Crustless Strawberry Pie

2 cups sliced strawberries
1 small box fat free sugar free cook & serve vanilla pudding
1 small box sugar free strawberry jello
2 cups water
Layer sliced berries in bottom and up sides of 9 inch pie plate or round pan.
Mix pudding mix and water and bring to a full boil.
Remove from heat and add dry jello mix, stirring well.
Let cool down about 5 minutes.
Pour over berries in pan.
Put in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to chill.
Serve with fat free cool whip free add points if needed.

Special Notes

  • Make sure pudding mixture is thickened enough or berries will rise to the top. The strawberries are the "crust".
  • I served this with 1 tbsp of FF redi whip!
  • I am going to try this with other fruits and jello flavors. To make a dreamsicle pie add Mandarin oranges instead of strawberries and orange SF/FF Jello. To make a peach pie add peaches instead of strawberries and peach SF/FF Jello. I have not figured out the points on either of these yet.
  • If you are doing the CORE program, you could add FF milk instead of water to the pudding. you can add this on FLEX too, but you have to add the calories/points. It was really good with just the water though and I did not have to add those points!

nutrition information:
2 cups sliced strawberries (100 calories)
1 box ff/sf pudding (80 calories)
1 box sf strawberry jello (40 calories)
total recipe is 220 calories, no fat and 6 fiber (from strawberries)!

Entire pie is only 4 points and is very yummy!!!! Great summer time treat!

P.S. I went to step aerobics yesterday and spinning class today! I am soooooooooooo glad I joined the gym. Plus my kids seem to look forward to the childcare! Win - Win! I have already earned 17 APs this week!

Oh good, I'm glad you liked this dessert! I thought it was delicious! Funny, as I didn't use as many strawberries as the recipe called for either. I used about 2 cups like you and that was PLENTY! I didn't even think to reduce my points. hee hee! Thanks so much for stopping by and you are such a great motivation to me!!

Glad you like this. The first time I made this I definately did not use that many strawberries either. Glad you pointed that out!
