  • Cool Whip pie is the epitome of comfort food for me. And who can resist that gorgeous pink color?
  • Light, refreshing, and bursting with a sweet berry flavor, it’s perfect for those scorching Summer days.

Ingredient Notes

Before we dive into the recipe, here are a few essential ingredient notes:

  • Greek Yogurt: Although it’s not part of the original recipe, I added Greek yogurt to infuse some protein into this fabulous treat. If you prefer, you can omit it and substitute it with more Cool Whip.
  • Strawberry Gelatin: While I used strawberry Jell-o, feel free to experiment with your favorite brand or different flavors like raspberry, cherry, or orange.
  • Thawed Cool Whip: Any brand of frozen whipped topping will work wonders in this recipe, as long as it’s thawed before use.
  • Graham Cracker Crust: Oops, I almost forgot! You’ll need a ready-made graham cracker crust. I personally used a gluten-free graham cracker crust from Midel.

Expert Tips to Elevate Your Pie

Here are a few expert tips to take your strawberry cool whip pie to the next level:

  • Pipe swirls of extra Cool Whip on top of the pie using a pastry bag fitted with a 1M tip for a stunning presentation.
  • Garnish the pie with fresh berries, such as sliced strawberries, to add a burst of color and extra fruity goodness.
  • If you’re up for it, you can make a homemade crust by mixing 1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs, ⅓ cup of granulated sugar, and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate, then bake it at 350°F for 10 minutes. Let it cool before adding the filling.
