3 Ingredient Strawberry Dessert
Fast and easy desserts usually mean a trip to your grocery store’s bakery aisle, but if you are looking for easy dessert recipes to keep you away from those baked goods that are loaded with preservatives, this 3 ingredient strawberry dessert recipe is an excellent replacement. This easy strawberry dessert combines fresh strawberries, whipped topping, and strawberry jello into a pretty, pink pudding. This dessert can be served in bowls, but it looks so elegant in dessert glasses, topped with a fresh berry. When you think of strawberry dessert recipes, you might think of your grandmother’s strawberry and rhubarb pie recipe or your classic angel food cake recipe, but with this three-ingredient recipe, desserts with fresh berries have never been so easy.
This strawberry recipe is so easy that your kids will be able to assemble it with you, and they will love the elegant feel of serving this pudding in dessert glasses. You will just want to keep a watchful eye on them when making the jello, because of the hot water, but otherwise, the preparation of this dessert is something anyone can do. You may not feel confident about serving your family store-bought whipped topping, like Cool Whip, however, so if you want to go for a more natural choice, just replace with the equivalent amount of sweetened whipped cream. Cream that you whip by hand yourself may have a looser texture than whipped topping does, but the strawberries and mashed jello should bulk up the mix into a creamy fusion. To make this strawberry dessert recipe into a fancy trifle dessert, you can even layer the cream mixture with soft lady finger cookies, like savoiardi, and allow the pudding to set in the refrigerator for several hours until the cookies turn to a cake-like consistency.
The fact is that this strawberry dessert recipe is so versatile; you could turn it into any number of easy desserts by changing up the jello flavour and the fruit. Consider using cherry jello instead of strawberry and stirring in some chopped fresh pitted cherries into the pudding mixture or do a raspberry version with fresh raspberries and raspberry jello. Of course, though, strawberries are the star of this three-ingredient strawberry pudding recipe, so be sure to try the original version first before branching off to create your own mixtures. There is absolutely no reason why you could not use your own organic gelatin and fruit juice for the color and a coconut whipped cream substitute.
This jello pudding recipe is so beautiful to the eyes and easy to eat. Even though this dessert would look great adorning the dinner table for an elegant dinner party, it shouldn’t be limited to that alone. This strawberry dessert recipe is smooth-textured and packed full of vitamin C-rich strawberries that it would be an excellent dessert for someone who isn’t feeling well enough to consume solid food. Not to mention, this pudding dessert recipe is a great way of getting picky eaters to get some fresh berries into their diet, which they might not otherwise eat.
