Strawberry Delight Dessert – Suitable For A Diabetic

Yesterday, I opened the freezer and saw frozen strawberries and I remembered the recipe I am sharing with you today.  I discovered it on allrecipes.com last summer and never used it but I kept it because I thought it was a good recipe to adapt for a diabetic.  Splenda could be substituted for the white sugar, sugar free pudding instead of the regular pudding and sugar free whipped topping for the regular whipped topping.

Submitted by 93vette to Allrecipes.com

Prep time:  30 minutes   Serves 12

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4  cup white sugar
  • 1/3  cup butter, melted
  • 1      (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/4  cup white sugar
  • 2  tablespoons milk
  • 3  1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2  (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 and 1/2 cups milk

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and melted butter until well blended . Press mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan. Chill in freezer while you make the filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.. Spread filling over crust. Place the strawberries in an even layer over filling. Prepare instant pudding as directed on package, but using only 3 1/2 cups milk. Spread prepared pudding over strawberries. Chill 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Before serving, spread remaining whipped topping over pudding.

I think just the color of strawberries help to make a dish look more special.  There are no fresh strawberries growing in North Carolina now as the growing season ended in May.  The berries are usually available in grocery stores here throughout the year.  I think this recipe could be adapted to other fruit including blueberries which are currently available here.

Happy Monday Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
