Now is certainly the time to treat yourself to the delicious flavor of fresh strawberries. This recipe features the flavor of sun ripened berries in a light, airy dessert. It's easy to make and a great addition to summertime tables.


  • 4 cups fresh strawberries 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 small package vanilla instant puding mix
  • 1 (8) ounce container thawed whipped topping or an equal amount of freshly made whipped cream (my personal preference)
Wash and remove stems from berries. Add them and sugar to your blender and process until smooth. Strain to remove seeds. Add back to blender with the pudding mix and process again, until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a bowl and gently fold in the whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate until time to serve or spoon into serving dishes before refrigerating. Before serving, garnish with a fresh strawberry, chocolate curls, a mint leaf or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

Cook's Notes

  • You can also use frozen berries if fresh aren't available
  • To make a healthier version, use sugar-free pudding mix and low fat whipped topping.
