Tiramisu Parfaits

Tiramisu Parfaits
4 servings

2 cups skim milk
1 package instant french vanilla pudding mix
4 ounces fat free cream cheese
1/3 cup leftover morning coffee (at room temperature)
24 Nilla wafers
2 cups fat free whipped topping
24 chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon baking cocoa

Whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add pudding and beat until smooth. Soak each Nilla wafer in coffee for a few seconds. Layer 3 Nilla wafers in the bottom of 4 parfait glasses. Top with half of the pudding mixture, 1 cup of the whipped topping and 3 chocolate chips. Repeat layers. Sprinkle each with a bit of cocoa.

This recipe is based on a recipe from Taste of Home magazine. But, by the time I had finished preparing it - I had made so many changes to the original recipe, I just decided to type it up the way I made it. ;-) It was very yummy for a low fat dessert! Mr. H. had no idea it was low fat and he just loved it. And, both my children scarfed it down, with my daughter commenting about "how rich!" it was. ;-)

Mrs H. I have been a reader of your blog for awhile now and thought it was high time I commented. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoy the photos, menus, recipes, bible verses, and quotes. Thank you! Julie of Dog Trot Farm

Hi Julie! Thank you so much for your comment. I appreciate knowing that you enjoy my blog. I knew exactly who you were when I saw that the comment was from "Dog Trot Farm"! My mom reads your blog all the time and LOVES it! It's one of her very favorites. :-) She's told me I really need to check it out, because I am hoping to get a few chickens this summer and that I can learn a lot from your postings about "your girls". Thanks again so much and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. :-)

I like these a lot. Simple ingredients that make for a fancy presentation when made as parfaits. Love it! Thanks for sharing on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday!
