Diabetic Recipe - Dessert

Source: The Recipe to Healthy Living with Diabetes, Albertson's, Inc. 2006

Strawberry Cream Pie


2-1/2 c strawberries
1/4 c sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tbsp frozen limeade concentrate or frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 slightly beaten egg whites
1 tbsp tequila or orange juice
1 3-oz package ladyfingers, split
2 tbsp orange juice
1/2 or an 8-oz container frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
sliced strawberries (optional)
fresh mint (optional)


Place the 2 1/2 c strawberries in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until nearly smooth. Measure strawberries (you should have about 1-1/2 cups). In a medium saucepan stir together the sugar and gelatin. Stir in the blended strawberries and limeade and lemonade concentrate. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture bubbles and the gelatin is dissolved. Gradually stir about half of the gelatin mixture into the egg whites. Return mixture to the saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat about 2 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened. Do not boil. Pour into a medium bowl; stir in tequila or orange juice. Chill until mixture mounds when spooned, stirring occasionally (about 2 hours). Meanwhile, cut half of the split ladyfingers in half crosswise; stand on end around the outside edge of a 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom or a 9 inch springform pan. Arrange remaining split ladyfingers in the bottom of the pan. Drizzle the 2 tbsp. orange juice over  the ladyfingers. Fold whipped topping into strawberry mixture. Spoon into prepared pan. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until set. If desired, garnish with the sliced strawberries and mint.

Makes 8 Servings.
