Chocolate Strawberry Parfaits

Chocolate Strawberry Parfaits

1 package (10 ounces) frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed
1 cup heavy whipping cream (or 2 cups whipped topping)

Beat milk and pudding mix until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes; set aside. Drain strawberries (discard the juice or save for another use); place berries in a blender.
