Vanilla Berry Parfait

I am a recipe person. Meaning...I need to follow a recipe. It is just how my brain works. My Madison, however, is much more creative. In fact she thrives on creativity, and I am often in awe of her. Today, she made dessert for us. Without a written recipe. And it was good! If you would like to give it a try, she told me how she made it. And I'm putting it down here because again...I require a written recipe. : )

Vanilla Berry Parfait
  1. One large box Instant Vanilla Pudding
  2. One tub Cool Whip, thawed
  3. Three cups milk
  4. Fresh whipped cream
  5. Graham crackers, finely crushed
  6. Assorted fresh berries
  1. Combine pudding mix and milk.
  2. Pour small amount into parfait cups. Or... plastic works too. : )
  3. Mix three-fourths of the Cool Whip with remaining pudding and layer on top.
  4. Top with remaining Cool Whip.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. Right before serving, layer crushed graham crackers on top.
  7. Then cover with whipped cream and fresh berries.
  8. Enjoy! : )
She added some food coloring into the Cool Whip and pudding mixture.
Just because. : )



  1. Oh how good is that?? thanks Billie Jo (Madison, smiles)--have a beautiful day friend.

  2. I'm totally a recipe person too! Not a creative bone in my body. This looks yummy!

  3. Oh my word -- that looks delish!! Wish I had one right about now! Like you, I also need a written recipe! Have a good day!

  4. This recipe sounds like a winner :) My husband and son love anything with berries and whipped cream so this is definitely something we would love to have. And I love the addition of the graham crackers. Well done, Madison, and thank you :)

    Hugs to you, Billie Jo!

  5. Looks so gorgeous and I bet it was yummy! I am like Madison. I like to throw things together. You should try it sometime, Billie Jo!😂😂

  6. This looks delicious! I love it! Definitely going to give it a try. I love how she put food coloring in the cool whip! xx

  7. Oh this just sounds too delicious!
    Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,

  8. This Sunday wonderful...a perfect summer dessert!

  9. That certainly does look good, it gets your tastebuds going.

  10. Good morning Billie Jo,

    You and I plus my daughter and your daughter equal a matched set. I am a needy recipe person and she creates her own recipes.

    The parfait looks delicious!


  11. Yum! What a creative young lady you have. I will have to make this for my family. Thanks for sharing! Hugs


Thanks so much for saying hello!

Billie Jo
