1/2 cup orange juice
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1-1/2 cup nonfat sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 12-ounce container light frozen, thawed whipped topping

For the crust
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
In a small saucepan, bring orange juice to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle gelatin over orange juice, stirring until gelatin dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk and orange peel. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, prepare crust. In a 9-inch pie plate, combine graham cracker crumbs, honey, and margarine. Mix well. Pat crumb mixture evenly over bottom and up sides of plate.
Fold whipped topping into orange mixture. Spoon orange mixture into prepared crust; smooth top. Sprinkle top with orange peel strips. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
