Health Benefits:

Strawberries are extremely high in antioxidants, and Vitamin C.  Given their unique combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, it's not surprising to see strong research support for strawberry health benefits in three major areas:  (1) cardiovascular support and prevention of cardiovascular diseases (2) improved regulation of blood sugar, with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, and (3) prevention of certain cancer types including breast, cervical, colon, and esophageal cancer.   

 

 Strawberry Pie Recipe

  • 4 cups of fresh frozen strawberries, hulled
  • (let berries thaw for 1 hour at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (8 inches)
  • 2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping

Directions

  • Set aside four whole berries for garnish. Slice remaining strawberries and set aside. In a large saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin and sugar until dissolved. Stir in sliced strawberries. Pour into the crust. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  • Cut reserved strawberries in half. Garnish each serving with whipped topping and a berry half. Yield: 8 servings.
