Pretzel Pie? Berry Nice…

Have you heard of strawberry pretzel pie? It sounds amazing, no question: a pretzel-crust pie filled with sweet strawberries. But that crust is usually made with loads of butter, and the filling is typically a sugarfest! Good news: We turned that pie on its head, and all the excess calories fell out! Our guilt-free recipe is the only one you need...

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

Cool: 30 minutes Chill: 4 hours

Ingredients:

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)


3 tbsp. cornstarch

Two 1/4-oz. envelopes unflavored gelatin

8 cups (about 4 pints) sliced strawberries

1 cup pretzel sticks, crushed

1 cup natural light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip)

Directions:

Spray a 9" deep-dish pie pan with nonstick spray.

In a blender or food processor, combine sweetener, cornstarch, gelatin, 2 cups strawberries, and 3/4 cup water. Puree until smooth.

Transfer mixture to a nonstick pot. Set heat to high, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to low. Cook and stir until mixture begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat, and let cool for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add remaining 6 cups strawberries, and stir to coat. Transfer mixture to the pie pan. (It will be very full!) Let cool completely, 10 - 15 more minutes.

Refrigerate until firm and chilled, at least 4 hours.

Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed pretzel sticks and top with whipped topping.

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.
