Simple enough for the kids to make, this yummy fresh-fruit parfait is always a welcome addition to our dinner table. Substitute fresh peaches or berries for a delicious change! If desired, garnish with a whole strawberry.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pkg. (4 serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
- 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Prepare vanilla pudding according to package directions, except do not chill.
In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together strawberries, jam, and sugar until jam is melted and the mixture is heated through, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
In each of 4 parfait glasses, layer 1/8 of the pudding and 1/8 of the strawberry sauce. Repeat layers. Chill 45 minutes, or until set, before serving.
