Chocolate Berry Parfait

This creamy dessert is easy to make for weekday dinners, yet pretty enough for company. Instant chocolate pudding is layered with a mixture of pureed strawberries and whipped cream to create yummy parfaits. For quicker results, use whipped topping rather than whipping cream...or serve in a single bowl.


4 to 6 servings


2 cups cold milk
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (10 ounce) package frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
sliced fresh strawberries, optional


In a bowl, beat milk and pudding mix until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes; set aside. Drain strawberries (discard the juice or save for another use); place berries in a blender. Cover and process until smooth; set aside.

In a bowl, beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in strawberry puree. Divide half of the chocolate pudding among four or six parfait glasses or bowls. Top with half of the strawberry mixture. Repeat layers. Garnish with a strawberry slice if desired.

Additional Information

2 cups of whipped topping may be substituted for the whipping cream and sugar.
