How long does it keep?

This is a great make ahead dessert, perfect if you are planning to serve it as part of a big feast. Once the jello has set, cover the pie with plastic wrap and it will keep well for 3 days.

It’s best not to freeze it, as the texture of the jello can change quite considerably once it is thawed.

How do you serve it?

This strawberry jello pie, in my humble opinion, should be served with some fresh whipped cream. Vanilla ice cream also makes a nice topping. It’s also never a bad idea to add a little grated chocolate to the top, if you like.

Recipe Variations

This pie is pretty delicious as it is, but it’s easy to use this base recipe to make any fruit jello pie you like. You can easily adapt this to use different fruits and flavored jello. Raspberry and orange are both great choices.

To make this pie super easy, I used a store bough pie crust, but of course, if you have a favorite crust recipe, feel free to use that.

Tips!

  • Use fresh rather than frozen strawberries for this recipe. Frozen fruits are either likely to stay frozen, or, release too much liquid into the jello.
  • Let the pie crust cool fully before adding the strawberries and jello.
  • Allow 2 to 3 hours for the pie to fully set before serving.
