One of my favorite foods is the 7-layer dip that my Mom used to make. When I came across a 7-layer dessert, I swear my tongue did somersaults! This dip is not only delicious, it isn’t too bad for you either! Another thing I love about this dip is that it can feed a group of people so it is perfect for a BBQ! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
7-Layer Dip Dessert
4 cups of skim milk
1 (5 oz) box of instant chocolate pudding
1 (5oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
3 medium bananas, thinly sliced
1 cup crushed pretzels (I crushed mine with a food processor)
1 cup sliced honey roasted almonds (or any kind of roasted almonds)
1 pound of strawberries, thinly sliced
8 oz cool whip, thawed
In a smaller bowl whisk 2 cups of milk with the vanilla pudding. In a separate bowl whisk 2 cups of milk with the chocolate pudding. Stick both bowls in the refrigerator and let it set.
After your pudding is set, add your ingredients in this order in a 9 x 13 inch pan: chocolate pudding on the bottom, then add sliced bananas, crushed pretzels, vanilla pudding, sliced almonds, sliced strawberries and then spread the cool whip over the top. I topped it with more almonds.
Stick it in the refrigerator and keep cold until you are ready to serve. I served mine with Vanilla Wafers and Graham Crackers.
You can switch out many things to make it healthier:
You can use more fresh fruit, use more pudding instead of cool whip, and use raw almonds instead of honey roasted
For a Non Healthier version:
Use Graham Crackers instead of pretzels, or add chocolate chips for another layer.
