No Bake Strawberry Pie

It’s a snow day today and National Pie Day!

Translation: stay in to make your favorite pie.  Naturally, I made our favorite No Bake Strawberry Raspberry Pie.  Note, we usually use rhubarb but since it’s not in season, we happily substituted with raspberries.

Since snow days are synonymous with lazy days in my family, I knew we’d want to enjoy a pie without having to put in all of the effort of actually baking a pie.

I was so happy to have found the ready-made graham cracker crust when I was storm shopping yesterday at my local market.

After simply boiling the berries and sugars and letting it sit for about 2 ½ hours in the fridge, the filling had perfectly gelled and we delightfully squirted on some whipped cream and shaved chocolate.

You must know that the pie is super sweet (you can offset the sugar by using stevia or another sugar substitute if you’d like).

But, you’re looking for sweet without the heat, this No Bake Strawberry-Raspberry Pie is a winner!  It’s too easy to pass up.
