This recipe for strawberry jello pie was a cornerstone of my childhood. Seriously, this was one of my favorite treats. A couple times a year my mom would whip this pie up, and it would all be gone in one evening. I think it was a Weight Watchers recipe. I’m almost positive it was a Weight Watchers recipe. Maybe it was two points? Lemme check on that and get back to you.
Either way, points or no points, it’s super simple and very tasty.
How do I make Strawberry Jello Pie with Graham Cracker Crust?
It really doesn’t take much to make it. Strawberries, jello, pudding, a graham cracker crust and boiled water. That’s honestly it. It does not get much simpler than that, folks.
I purchase graham cracker crust from the grocery store, then I slice up the strawberries and add them to the pie crust. I use an entire container of strawberries every time I make this pie.
Then I boil water, and add the jello packet and vanilla pudding packet to the water. Stir the mixture until all the powder is dissolved, and then remove from heat and pour over the strawberries.
Move the strawberry jello pie to the refrigerator and let the jello mixture set up. This takes about four hours.
How Long does Strawberry Jello Pie with Graham Cracker Crust Last?
In our house, this strawberry jello pie typically doesn't last more than a day. However, if you are making this recipe for a barbeque or party and want to plan ahead, this strawberry jello dessert will last a week in the refrigerator.

Remember a couple months ago when strawberries went on sale and I had them coming out my ears because they went way on sale (like 99 cents a pint on sale)? And I made this strawberry jelly, and these strawberry jalapeno margaritas? This was one of the recipes I had to make and share. Just like when I was growing up, the pie did not last long.
The last time I made this, I made it with my favorite pulled pork recipe--which I put on some buns with barbeque sauce for my boyfriend and his roommates. Gone so quickly. RIP, Strawberry Jello Pie.
One thing I like about this recipe (other than how easy it is), is how budget-friendly it is. I figured with the strawberries on sale for $1.39 a pint, a graham crust for $2.39 and strawberry jello and vanilla pudding for $1 each, you’ve got an entire pie for less than $6. It’s perfect for a night at home, or a picnic, or potluck, and you’ve hardly invented any money into it.
