Doin a Snookie on the Oreo Cookie...
One of my weekend projects was to make a dessert. I finished my wreath as well and I'll post that later this week, but let's get to the sweet stuff! My friend gave me this recipe about a year ago and it is about the easiest thing I've ever made and it tastes great! People always ask for the recipe wherever I take it so here ya go.
The nice thing about this version is it doesn't use butter or cream cheese like other recipes online do, so there is a TON less fat! Let's get started.
Glass Container to layer dessert in
(1) package of Oreo cookies
(1) container of Light Coolwhip
(2) packages Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
3.5 cups of Skim Milk
And food coloring is optional
Dump (2) packages of instant pudding mix into bowl, add 3.5 cups of skim milk and stir with whisk till mixed. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the pudding to set up.
While the pudding is setting up, put the Light coolwhip in the microwave to thaw it out. When thawed, dump the entire container of coolwhip into the pudding and mix with a spatula until well blended.
Check out the pics below of my artsy green and black dessert, the whole thing only has around 10 grams of fat if you take out the oreos! Try this recipe and substitute fruit layers like strawberries or lowfat vanilla wafers to make it a healthy snack!
