Celebrate anytime with this sensational strawberry jello pie recipe. This easy no-bake creamy pie is made for strawberry fans, with both strawberry jello and fresh strawberry slices.
Nothing screams beautiful weather like a punnet of fresh strawberries, so why not turn that into this creamy strawberry jello pie? It takes just five ingredients to make this pie recipe: strawberry jello (of course), whipped topping, fresh strawberries, a store-bought graham cracker crust, and water (both hot and cold). Fortunately, it’s so easy to make and there’s no baking required, just some chill time in the fridge for it to set.
One of my favorite parts about this strawberry jello pie recipe is that it makes enough pie filling for two pie shells. So keep one for you and your family and then take one to your next summer gathering. No one can turn down a slice of strawberry pie (it’s a fact). It’s simultaneously fresh, creamy, and oh-so-sweet.

Then pop the pie filling in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Pour it out into the prepared pie shell and smooth it over.

Serve your strawberry jello pie with homemade whipped cream and sliced strawberries on top. It nearly looks too good to eat (nearly 😉).
Store pie leftovers in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 3 days. I don’t recommend freezing the pie (lucky it’s super easy to make).
- Here are some different substitutions and variations to make this jello pie your own:
- Swap the strawberry jello for a different jello flavor and fun color, like grape jello for a purple pie!
- Serve your pie with a dollop of whipped cream, Cool Whip, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Decorate with fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries, shaved chocolate, or a maraschino cherry.
- Swap the graham cracker pie crust for chocolate graham crackers or an Oreo crust. You could also make a homemade pie crust.
- I recommend using fresh strawberries over frozen strawberries in this pie recipe.
