Gee whiz people…If you don't want to eat this pie don't make it… this recipe isn't promoting pie as a wonder drug for weight loss or great food for diabetics, it a recipe for slightly healthier Cherry Pie. This is geared to those of us who want to sin occasionally and this is much better for us than making a pie with regular white sugar, that's all. Lighten up, if you want healthy living, no calories or low carb. deserts, just go on out into the backyard and graze. Please save us your righteous indignation, we don't care and we actually do know it's not perfect!

Sorry, all bad ingredients…
- How about some fresh cherries?
- Pudding is made from corn starch. Starch is a simple carb that raises one's blood glucose. Corn is 90% GMO. Sugar free? What's in it? Aspartame (marketed as Nutra-Sweet or Equal)? I hope you are not drinking this poison. Google it.
- The same applies to sugar-free gelatine.
- Pastry shell is made from simple carb-white flour, a non-no for diabetics.

I made this, but instead of pie crust I used a thin graham cracker crust only on the bottom … Tastes great. I don't know how many carbs that got rid of, but I'm guessing it's a good bit.

Sounds good but the carbs are too much for 1/8 of the pie. I'm thinking there must be a way to make a crust with less carbs. Oh phooey…eat more and make it a whole meal.

This is not the calorie count for 1 pie! It is for 1 serving. If you can read a label, you know the cherries have more calories than this and then add the pie crust and other ingredients. You are kidding yourself if you convince yourself you can eat the whole pie, but your body knows the truth

I wish it would list the amount of fiber in this Cherry Pie recipe so that my weight watcher calculater can tell me the number of points per serving.
