On my way back from the gym I always pass a grocery selling the freshest fruits and vegetables.  I always pass  by and long for the gorgeous berries but never stop.  Today was different.  I had $5 in my pocket specially for those berries.  I bought a pint each of blackberries and raspberries, my favs!  I hurried home and did a taste test, and folks they were delicious…perfectly ripe, juicy and sweet.   I decided to make a quick healthy dessert that showcases the berries and it’s freshness.


Mixed Berry Parfaits


1 pint blackberries

1 pint raspberries

1 box french vanilla pudding

2 cups skim milk

low fat whipped topping


Whisk pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes.  Rinse and dry berries.  I use wine glasses, but you can use what ever floats your boat.  Just layer berries and pudding, then top with whipped topping and enjoy!
