7-Layer Dip Dessert

7 layer2

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.

    I’m diabetic, and wish I could eat all of your delicious looking recipes. Do you have, or do you plan on making, any low-carb dishes, or any that use Stevia and Swerve “natural” sweeteners? A lot of other recipes I’ve seen on the internet that claim to be sugar-free, low-carb, and etc. use honey and agave nectar, but they have a very high glycemic index. Also, too many use chemical based that are very unhealthy such as Stevia, and Aspartame. Hope Six Sisters would consider a section for diabetics in the future. Ya’ll do an excellent job. :)
