Dress up instant pudding mix with this “famous” dessert that combines low fat dairy and fruit for a tasty, nourishing treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 instant pudding mix, banana or vanilla (3.5 ounce)

  • 1 yogurt, fat-free (8 ounce, or non-dairy whipped topping)

3. Layer fruit slices in the bottom of 8 dessert cups.

4. Pour the pudding mixture over sliced fruit.
