Oh yeah and this morning I took the SATs!! It's been a looong two weeks...
But, the best thing about midterms is that school starts at 9:30 rather than 7:30!! I love sleeping late. I am SOO not a morning person, I'm not the most gregarious (sat vocab!) kid before my morning tea.
Normally my breakfast consists of tea and an apple, if I am feeling hungry when I wake up in the morning. However, my mom said that I needed a more substantial breakfast for the tests.
I only had the math midterm yesterday so after dinner I decided to make a pudding parfait. This time I made it with white chocolate (sugar-free/fat-free) pudding. But the night before I had it with chocolate pudding and loved it just as much. So the moral of that tidbit: it tastes good with almost any type of pudding so feel free to experiment.
I'm slightly hesitant to call these healthy because they do have about 160-180 calories depending on the add-ins. But they are basically sugar-free and delicious so I am going to call them healthy to make me happy.
Add-Ins: 1 Oreo, 1 graham cracker and/or mini chocolate chips
Pour the packet of instant pudding into a bowl.
Mix with a whisk until thickened.
Occasionally use a spoon to scrap the bottom of the bowl of any pudding mix that gets stuck in side.
Now time for the first "add-in" What are these add-in's I am speaking of? Well these are parfaits so the need some slight crunch. I choose graham crackers this time but anything from cereal to chocolate chips would work, and remember a little goes a long way in these!
Only one square between the four parfaits but holy yumm it makes it so much better!
These graham crackers are gluten-free, egg-free deliciousness. When we make chocolate covered grahams...we use these! Nothing, and I mean nothing, is better! But there is a down side. It is like playing the lottery when buying one of these boxes. They don't come cheap and sometimes we get a box in which a lot of them are broken! While they taste the same, there not optimal for chocolate dipping.
Anyways, mix really well until nice and fluffy and looks like that.
Then distribute between the four containers
Now time for another add-in...Mini Chocolate Chips!!
I used about a tablespoon between 4 (so thats 1/4 tablespoon each)
Now take the remaining Cool Whip and place a dollop on each.
To finish it off, top with some strawberry slices.
Cover with seran wrap and refridgerate until cold and ready to eat
look at the pretty layers!!
I really loved it!! Especially with my glass of cinnamon tea :)
With love and cupcakes,
