    Beat gelatin mixture with electric mixer on high speed about 4 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until thick and fluffy; set aside. In chilled large bowl, beat whipping cream and icing sugar on high speed until stiff. Gently stir whipped cream and crushed strawberries into gelatin mixture. Pour into crust. Refrigerate about 3 hours or until set. Garnish with whipped cream and strawberry halves. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Special Touch: Spectacular garnishes will make this dessert even more irresistible. Try lime slices or another green fruit, such as kiwi.
  • Tip 2
    Success: Freshly squeezed lime juice is truly worth the effort! Purchased lime juice just doesn't enhance the fresh berry flavour as well.
