No Bake Berry Pudding Parfaits - Pinterest Summer Challenge

I was reading Centsational Girl's blog last week and saw that she is co-hosting the Summer Edition of the Pinterest Challenge on Tuesday, July 10.  This was just the boost I needed to make one of the many recipes I have saved in my "For the Stomach - Recipes" board.  Just one big problem, it has been hotter than an armpit here in Michigan and I couldn't fathom actually baking, cooking or grilling anything.  It was that hot.

So when I found this pin from Stop Lookin, Get Cookin, I knew I had a winner! No cooking. Eat it right  from the fridge. Used fruit. Perfect!!

Well, it was perfect until I checked my pantry and my fridge.  I had no pudding (how did that happen) and I only had 1/2 pint of raspberries (um, yeah, that is because I ate the other part of the pint).  So I checked the freezer in the garage and found some of last season's blueberries - so those got added to the recipe. Then when I was at the grocery, I accidentally got one box of cheesecake pudding and one box of white chocolate pudding. Yup, it was that kind of day.  However, on the plus side, I did get stuff for us to make s'mores later this week!

I think my modified recipe looks quite patriotic, just the ticket for a hot evening in the week of Independence Day!

  1. Oh yum! And so easy for the hot days here I won't even break into a sweat making it!

    1. These are so easy but so tasty! The kids are asking when we can make them again and if we can try different fruit. Figure it can't be bad if it makes them want to eat fruit, right?

  2. Great minds think alike! And I think we even have the same footed dessert bowls from Crate & Barrel. :-)

    1. Those are the C&B footed bowls! Good eye. Your parfait looks so tasty! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I adore parfaits and this one includes all my favourite ingredients. I bet it makes the perfect summer dessert - can't wait to try!

  4. Yummy! Thanks so much for sharing at Frugal Treasures Tuesday.
