Easy pudding with berries

My sister-in-law, Georgia, has been here on vacation and is on her way home to Tennessee.  We usually get to see her only once a year and had a good-bye dinner the other night … I was asked to bring dessert.   I needed to use whatever I had at home and because there was no time for a grocery store trip.  Seven people would be at the dinner … four of which are diabetic and I know that they rely on sugar-free instant pudding as a safe dessert.  There were strawberries in the fridge that “needed” to be used.  So, I came up with this combo and it was sooo simple and fast!

This is what I used … strawberries, sugar-free (or regular) instant pudding mix, milk, cream cheese and vanilla bean paste …

In a mixing bowl, beat softened cream cheese and vanilla bean paste  …

Add milk  … and pudding mix

 

Beat until smooth …

Scoop into dessert dishes …

Top with berries …

Garnish with whipped cream, if desired …

In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and vanilla until smooth.  Add milk and pudding mix … beat until smooth.  Scoop into dessert dishes.   Top with berries and chill until ready to serve.  Top with whipped cream if desired.

  1. Oh, so yummy to look at, and so refreshing as well. Now tell me, why does Georgia live in Tennessee and not Georgia? Then for sure she would be a Georgia Peach!! Hope the dinner was good!!

  2. This was very good. The cream cheese gave the instant pudding an extra creaminess. Both kids loved and I know the hubby will be happy to see a bowl for him in the fridge for his midnight snack. Thanks!
