It’s the season for Fresh Strawberry Pie! A few years ago, I remember searching “How to Make Strawberry Pie” and I was stunned by how easy the recipe is. How could the best strawberry pie with jello be this easy? This time, I’ve decided to make it a slab pie, throw in a few blueberries, and use a graham cracker crust.
Strawberry Pie Slab with Blueberries
I didn’t set out to make it a strawberry & blueberry slab pie with a graham crust, it’s just because I was lazy.
I was too lazy to go the store for pie crust and I sure as heck wasn’t going to make my own. Even with my friend’s perfect pie crust tutorial, I was not interested in trying yet. I already had the strawberries and I had a few boxes of graham crackers for any last minute bonfire S’More’s party.
I also had a few blueberries, so why not add those too, right?
To make this strawberry pie even better? I had some sugar free strawberry jello already in my cupboard. I was destined to make some strawberry slab pie!
If you want to use regular jello, that works too, but if you’re trying to cut some sugar from your diet, the sugar-free jello works great.
I love that I can make this strawberry pie in its regular form or in a slab form.
My family finished this slab pie off in 2 days. I may have had a couple of pieces myself. Nutrition information is approximate and taken from using MyFitnessPal for a full sugar version.
Because I was using sugar-free jello, I only used one cup of Truvia. But, I don't even think I needed that.

I’m not much a whipped cream kind of girl, so I always forget that some may expect it. As in my husband. His first question before taking a bite was “is there whipped cream?”
So by all means, if you want, slather on a layer of whip topping over the top after it’s chilled. Completely optional. We didn’t have any, and he still managed to eat half of the pan.
I have a feeling we’ll be making the sugar-free version of this Strawberry Pie Recipe a lot this summer!
