I have been making this dessert forever! Well, as long as I’m married, anyway. It is light, cool, wonderful for summer, and easy as pie to make, well, easy as parfait, anyway!

This can be make a little bit ahead of time, but not more that an hour or so, because of the bananas…no one wants to eat brown bananas!

Fruit and Pudding Parfait

2 packs. instant pudding (I use either vanilla, white chocolate, or cheesecake, depending on my mood! You can also use sugar-free if you so desire!)

2 cans pineapple chunks (in juice)

2 bananas

2 cans mandarin oranges

1 pt. fresh strawberries, quartered

1 large can fruit cocktail (in juice)

1 container cool whip

maraschino cherries for garnish

Put all fruit, (drain all EXCEPT pineapple!) in a large bowl. Sprinkle pudding mix over fruit and mix together. Let it sit a few minutes to thicken. Use pretty tall glasses, parfait glasses, or anything that would show the layers and be pretty. Layer the fruit mixture and cool whip to the top of the glass, finishing with cool whip and a cherry. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. They are so pretty and a healthy dessert alternative! Enjoy!
