Strawberry Gelatin Pie with Pretzel Crust

This is a light summer pie that is super easy to prepare. The crunchy pretzel crust adds a nice contrast to the smooth filling. This is not your typical overly sweet dessert. Note that it is sugar-free and low in carbs.

 

Ingredients

 

Crust

1 cup(1-½ ounces) pretzels

1 cup rice krispies cereal

4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

 

Filling

1 box (1/3 ounce) sugar free strawberry gelatin dessert powder

1 cup boiling water

6 ounces fat-free vanilla yogurt

3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

 

Directions

 

Strawberry Gelatin Pie with Pretzel CrustPreheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

In a small food processor, chop pretzels. Add rice krispies and melted butter. Process until well mixed. Spoon into 9 inch pie pan and press firmly into bottom and sides of the pan. Bake for 8 - 12 minutes or just until beginning to brown. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.

 

In a medium bowl, combine gelatin powder and boiling water. Stir until dissolved. Let cool for 10 - 15 minutes. Add yogurt and mix well. Refrigerate 15 - 30 minutes or until thickened but not completely set. Using an electric mixer, beat gelatin mixture for 4 - 5 minutes or until about double in volume. Add strawberries and stir to mix. Spoon into crust. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
