My mom use to always make this pie, because of my allergies to milk-fat.

This is a quick and easy recipe that my husband enjoyed immensely. It has become a permenant addition to our menu. The recipe must be follow precisely or it will not chill correctly and you will have a runny pie. However, I have changed using the ice cubes to just adding 3/4 cup water and have found that works better. I also have added a layers of sliced strawberries to the pie and garnished with kiwi. It definitely a good recipe.

I eliminated the strawberries and used the fat-free whipped topping to lower the calorie count. Overall, this is a pretty easy recipe...but you MUST follow it exactly or do as the other review said and cut back on the water/ice mixture...or it will be runny.

I followed this recipe exactly and in the 15-20 minutes it was in the fridge, a large portion of liquid separated out and sat at the bottom of the bowl. I had to throw the whole thing out and start over. I don't think the whipped topping should be stirred in with a wire wisk; it should be gently folded in with a rubber scraper.
