Servings: 12-15

  • 1 large container strawberries, cut into small cubes or slivers
  • 2 peaches, cut into small cubes or slivers
  • 3 packages instant chocolate pudding (try the Trader Joe's version - it's low fat, gelatin-free, and easy to make - you can also use the Jello brand low-fat instant pudding mix as well)
  • 1 (8 oz) container of low-fat or non-fat vanilla yogurt (Trader Joe's Non-fat French-Village Vanilla and Mountain High Low-Fat Vanilla are both good options )
  • 1 small box graham crackers (you will only use about 20-30 crackers max)
  • Optional: Carob Chips or Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Prepare pudding and put aside to chill for at least five minutes
  • Use a large, clear, glass serving bowl (or a footed trifle bowl if you have one) 
  • Cover base of bowl with a solid layer of graham cracker
  • Layer on ingredients - 2" of vanilla, strawberries, crushed graham cracker,  2" of pudding, then peaches
  • Repeat your layering pattern 
  • Top with remaining fruit, graham crackers, and any optional ingredients
  • Let chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour
  • Enjoy!
