Fruity Summertime Cooler Gelatin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust

This is an unusual gelatin dessert recipe but it is the perfect gelatin and cool whip pie recipe for a hot day. The resulting gelatin pie with graham cracker crust will be semi-set rather than solid, unlike some other gelatin recipes, and the lime, kiwi, and apricot flavors blend very nicely.

The buttermilk gives this cooler pie a creamy texture and it enriches the overall flavor. You can use a different flavor of preserves if you like and strawberries are also good, instead of kiwi fruit, or any fresh berries or fruits in season can be used to top this delicious summer cooler cool whip and gelatin pie recipe.

If you are a fan of fruity flavors, you will really enjoy this delicious gelatin pie with graham cracker crust recipe. The buttermilk and Cool Whip add a sumptuous texture. The tang of the lime gelatin is great with the extra sweet pineapple, kiwi, and apricots. Kiwi cannot be used in gelatin because an enzyme in it stops gelatin from setting, but it can be used to top a gelatin pie, like in the following recipe for kiwi and apricot gelatin pie.
