Add another delicious pie recipe to your list with this sweet and tasty strawberry 7 Up pie! This dessert pie is similar to a fruit pie because it’s filled with strawberry pieces, but it’s also different from the usual fruity pies. For this recipe, 7 Up (or lime soda) is added into the strawberry jello and cornstarch mixture to make the thick strawberry pie filling. The 7 Up gives the dish a subtle lemon-lime flavor that tastes well with the sweet and tarty strawberry. Complete the pie dessert with some homemade whipped cream on top, and then serve this after a satisfying meal of roast chicken.

Tips on Making 7 Up Strawberry Pie

This strawberry 7 Up pie is a fruity upgraded pie version of the popular Sprite pie recipe or the traditional water pie or “desperation pie.” Instead of just combining water or Sprite with flour and sugar, this 7 Up pie mixes in the sweet flavors of strawberries. And there are more ways for you to level up the taste of this unique dessert pie. We listed some helpful tips below for you to try so you can fully enjoy this delicious 7 Up strawberry pie!

  • Use fresh or frozen strawberries. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries for this recipe. Just make sure that you give the frozen strawberries ample time to thaw before adding it into the pie mixture. Although, if you’re planning to make this pie ahead of time, then it’s better to use fresh strawberries so that it will last longer uncooked. 
  • Blind bake your own pie crust. For a fresher pie taste, you can challenge yourself by following this simple homemade pie crust recipe made with all purpose flour, butter, and other ingredients. You can also use pastry flour for a tender and flaky pie crust. Instead of buying one of those ready-made frozen pie crust, a homemade one will taste more delicious when it’s freshly baked!
  • Try adding in vanilla extract for a sweeter tasting pie. Add about a teaspoon of vanilla extract into the pie filling mixture. You can also use maple syrup as a substitute. Either way, adding in a bit of vanilla extract or maple syrup will definitely enhance the flavor of this 7 up pie. 
  • Add toppings. This pie will taste even better with a creamy, sweet, or fruity topping. Aside from the whipped cream, you can also add strawberries or other fresh fruits. You can also top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a strawberry-flavored one.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between water pie and Sprite pie or 7 Up pie?

The differences between a water pie and a Sprite or 7 Up pie are the main ingredient used, and the history behind it. As the name suggests, water pie uses water to make the pie filling, and 7 Up pie uses carbonated soda such as Sprite, 7-Up, or lemon lime soda. The water pie recipe originated from the Great Depression era, hence the name “desperation pie.” On the other hand, the Sprite pie was popularized because of TikTok. It’s basically a modern version of the water pie. Instead of water, most of the flavors will come from the lemon lime soda so it’s more sugary and buttery.

Why is my 7 Up strawberry pie so runny?

A runny pie filling is common for fruit pies, especially in this case with the added 7 Up. The extra fruit juices and liquids can cause a soggy pie crust. We recommend that you thaw, drain, or dry your strawberries first before adding it into the pie. Adding more fruits than necessary can make the filling runny so stick to what is required in the recipe. To prevent a runny pie filling, add 1 more teaspoon of cornstarch into the pie mixture to thicken it.
