I had a small amount of strawberries to use and wanted something for a lunch dessert that wasn’t too heavy or rich. This recipe, adapted from one on Allrecipes worked out quite well.
SUMMER STRAWBERRY DESSERT
- 1-1/2 cups cold milk
- 1 (1 oz.) package of instant vanilla pudding
- 4 oz. softened cream cheese
- 1 cup whipped topping, thawed
- 2 cups (1 pt.) of fresh strawberries, halved (divided)
In a large mixing bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.
In another large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add whipped topping on low speed until blended. Add the pudding mix and mix on low speed until smooth.
When ready to serve, top pudding with reserved strawberries.
Makes 5 servings.
