Make this light and lemony strawberry chiffon pie with a base of gelatin and frothy topping made from whipped nonfat dry milk. Frozen strawberries give you the freedom to make this pie year-round.


  • 1 prebaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie crust
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed, drained, juice reserved
  • 1/2 cup water, room temperature
  • 1 envelope (7 grams) unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1/3 cup ice water
  • 1/3 cup dry NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


FREEZE small mixer bowl and beaters. Pour 1/2 cup water into small bowl; sprinkle with gelatin.

COMBINE 1/4 cup sugar and flour in small saucepan. Add strawberry juice and gelatin mixture; mix well. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in strawberries and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Pour into large mixer bowl. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until thick and syrupy, but not set.

BEAT ice water and dry milk in chilled bowl for 3 to 4 minutes or until soft peaks form. Add remaining lemon juice and beat for 3 to 4 minutes or until stiff. Fold in 2 tablespoons sugar; blend on low speed. With wire whisk, mix whipped topping into strawberry mixture.

POUR into pie crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

Easy to Make

I enjoyed making this recipe with my mom when my parents came to our house. I thought that it might be difficult, which I'm up for challenges, but it was so easy. My husband is a bit picky at times and he ate most of the pie. Next time I will make 2 pies instead of 1 so we can all have more. :)

Made the pie for dinner and there was none left for later. The family loved it. The recipe takes a little time to make but is well worth it. This is the best I've tasted so far.

This is easy and oh so yummy. Very light and hits the spot when you crave the dessert. It doesn't stay long in my house, everyone eats it faster than I can make it.
