Light n' Fluffy Fruit Pie

This is a pie from my childhood.  I remember when raspberries started to be in season my Mom would make this.  It is super simple and screams summer!  It isn't glamorous but it is delicious!

Light n' Fluffy Fruit Pie

1 graham cracker crust
1 3oz Jello package (raspberry)
2/3 cup of boiling water
2 cups of ice cubes
1 regular container of Cool Whip (reduced-fat)
2 pints of berries, mix of blueberries and raspberries

Add the boiling water to the Jello in a medium bowl.  Stir for 2 minutes to make sure the Jello is dissolved.  Then add the ice cubes.  Stir until the mixture starts to thicken and remove any access ice cubes.  Fold in the cool whip and then the berries.  Place the bowl in the refrigerator so that it can set a bit, about 1-2 hours.  Pour the mixture into the graham crust.  Cover and allow it is sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 more hours.  Enjoy!
