Ms. G's Kitchen | Light and Sweet Jell-O (and Cool Whip) Pie

Wow, the holiday season is finally here! It's also that challenging time of year when some of us are trying to end the year on (not under) the healthy lifestyle wagon, but we also want to enjoy some of those sweet treats that seem to be everywhere. Well, I've got a light and tasty dessert recipe to accommodate both!

As I've shared before, my #MAWM "Ms. G" has always been one to try new and lighter-versions of foods that we love. In comes one of her most famous desserts; Jell-O (Gelatin) Pie. Growing up, it was always in demand. From her daycare students, our church family, and neighbors, this lighter alternative to key lime or rich cheesecake was a hit. This pie delivers a fluffy, citrus-forward experience with just the right amount of sweetness for you to enjoy without any guilt.

How it's Made

- 2/3 cup boiling water
- 1 Packet (3 Ounces) Sugar-Free Flavored Gelatin (Jell-O)
- Ice cubes
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 Container (8 Ounces) Lite Whipped Cream (Cool Whip)
- Graham Cracker Crumb Pie Crust

Helpful Kitchen Tools:

Instructions: Boil 2/3 cup of water and add a full packet of flavored gelatin mix in a large, heat-safe bowl. Carefully stir the mixture for up 2 minutes or until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Once dissolved, add 1 cup of ice water to cool. Remove any cubes of unmelted ice. Gently and gradually whisk in the whipped topping until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture into a pre-made graham cracker pie crust and cover. Refrigerate for approximately 3 hours or until firm.

Recipe Substitutions:
- Low Carb? Go for full-fat whipped cream and swap the graham cracker crust for a nut flour-based crust.
- Not dieting? Go for the original (sugar) gelatin and full-fat whipped cream.
