Fruit Forward Summer Pie

Fruit Forward Summer Pie

I know people like to make fun of Jello dishes but honestly, Jello totally brings this Fruit Forward Summer Pie together. I’m all for whole foods and this pie is fruit forward full of them (being stuffed to the brim with berries as it is). Choosing a bright Jello flavour to match just ramps the whole pie up a notch and holds it all together in a delightful way. So, no Jello snobbery here. This is not your Grandma’s mystery jelly-moulded food. This is summer at its best.
