Instant Vanilla Pudding & Berries—Easy Summer Recipe

You can all close your mouths now. You know, the mouths that are open in shock because I, self professed non cook, am posting a recipe.

There are two things you need to remember:

1. It's not that I can't cook, it's just that I prefer not to.

2. If I must cook, I prefer things to be as easy as possible.

And that's where this recipe, that I made up all by my little old self, comes in.


1 package instant vanilla pudding (nobody cares which size...just whatever works for you).
1 package frozen mixed berries.
Whatever amount of milk is required to make your pudding.


Read your vanilla pudding package and do what it says with the milk and a whisk.
Pour the pudding into pretty bowls or goblets or something.
Put in the fridge to set for a few minutes.
Thaw out the berries in the microwave for a minute or so.
Put them on top of your set pudding.

Voila! A lovely, quick and yummy summer dessert.

  5. Looks like YUM! I too am capable of cooking, but try to avoid it as best I problem is, I do actually like eating. Actually, I don't always mind cooking as much as the cleaning up afterward...actually, I don't really like EITHER...
