Day 9--Low Sugar Fruit Pie

Happy Mother's Day to all Moms!
My mom was diabetic and loved this pie as a 'sweet' treat. Make it with fresh or well drained canned fruits and dollop with sugar free topping to make it extra special. Strawberries and peaches are especally tasty. And don't forget a bit of garnish--a sprig of mint will do the trick.

Fruit Pie

1 package sugar free cook and serve vanilla pudding
1 package sugar free gelatin to match or compliment your fruit
1 reduced fat graham cracker crust
enough fruit of your choice to fill the crust

Mix pudding with 1/2 cup water until smooth. Stir in an additional 1/2 cup water and cook until thickened. Add the gelatin and mix well. Set aside and fill the crust. Pour the glaze evenly over the fruit. Chill until set.
