At this time of year, we look for the simple things and there is nothing more simple than making a layered pudding dessert. Besides cooking the berries, it is literally layering your ingredients. It looks amazing and it is what I call a “wow” dessert.
Here is what you need:
– vanilla pudding
– 4 cups of berries – we used blueberries
– ¼ cup of sugar
– 2 tsp of cornstarch
– cool whip/whipped cream
– shredded coconut
Step 1: Combine berries, sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until the berries begin to break down. Remove from heat and set aside until cool.
Step 2: To assemble, layer the pudding and berries in your containers starting with the pudding on the bottom and alternating back and for with the berries.
Step 3: Add a spoonful of whipped cream or cool whip to the top and sprinkle generously over the top shredded coconut. Serve immediately.
