All it takes is a little Cool Whip and a box of JELL-O to make delicious pudding pies.
To help minimize the chaos at our house with the start of school, I decided to make a couple of them – one for my husband who does not eat chocolate, and another for those of us who do. Then when someone wants a snack or when we have guests over and want dessert, all I have to do is pull one out of the freezer.
The base of the pies is made with a box of JELL-O pudding and an 8-ounce carton of Cool Whip. Pudding pies are a cinch to make and you could easily adapt the base recipe to suit your tastes.
For Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie, I bought the following:
- a box of JELL-O Strawberry Crème instant pudding mix,
- 2 – 8-ounce cartons of Cool Whip,
- cream cheese,
- some strawberry kefir,
- some sliced sweetened strawberries,
- and a prepared graham cracker pie crust.
After allowing the cream cheese and Cool Whip a little bit of time to soften and thaw (about 30 minutes), I am able to whip up the pie in only a matter of minutes. Granted, it does need to freeze for a couple of hours before serving, but the amount of work going into the pie is minimal.
