Graham pudding parfaits

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour

Graham pudding parfaits

1 package instant pudding mix
1 1/2 cups low-fat rice milk or soy milk
1 cup coarsely crumbled graham cracker pieces
1 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen and thawed)
3 tablespoons shredded coconut

Prepare pudding according to package directions. Place a thin layer of graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of three parfait cups or small bowls and cover with a thin layer of berries then a layer of pudding. Complete parfaits by layering graham crackers, pudding, and berries until all ingredients are used. Garnish with coconut and chill for one hour before serving.

Note: This dessert freezes well. For variation, use sliced bananas and peaches in addition to berries, or try fruit-flavored soy yogurt in place of pudding.
