Easy No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie Recipe

This No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie is very similar to a classic strawberry pie, but the strawberry flavor is amped up by using strawberry Jello instead of unflavored. Rather than baking the crust, you’ll use a store-bought graham cracker crust, and the topping is made with Cool Whip.

See? So easy!

Creamy Strawberry Jello Pie is made for springtime and hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven to bake. It’s so simple, it’s the kind of recipe you’ll find yourself making again and again!

steps to make no bake strawberry jello pie

How to Make No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie

1. Prep the Strawberries

Slice a cup of strawberries and refrigerate them for later. Chop the remaining strawberries and set aside.

2. Make the Gelatin

Add the boiling water to the gelatin mix and stir for 2 minutes, or until it’s completely dissolved. Next, add enough ice to the cold water to measure 1 cup and pour this into the gelatin mixture. Stir until slightly thickened and remove any unmelted ice.

3. Finish the Filling

Fold the Cool Whip into the gelatin mixture and stir in the chopped strawberries. 

4. Chill

Refrigerate the filling mixture for 20 to 30 minutes, or until it’s thick and can be mounded. 

5. Assemble and Finish

Spoon the filling into the crust. Refrigerate the pie for 6 hours or until firm. Top with additional Cool Whip and sliced berries before serving.

How to Store No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie

Can I make strawberry Jello pie ahead of time?

Yes, you can! I recommend making it no more than a day in advance so it’s super fresh. While it will keep in the fridge longer than this, it’s at its best after about a day.

How can I garnish strawberry Jello pie?

I recommend serving each slice with a dollop of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry on top. You can also use a combination of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries or add a sprig of fresh mint.

Can I use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip in this recipe?

No, regular whipped cream won’t work for this No-Bake Strawberry Jello Pie. Cool Whip doesn’t lose volume in the fridge like whipped cream does.

  1. I use sugar free jello to reduce the amount of sugar and calories. I have also made this with other jello flavors like lime.
