Fresh summer strawberries and blueberries make this spectacular dessert rich in vitamin C and full of flavor. It's easy to make and ready to chill in 25 minutes.


  • 1 4-serving-size package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk

  • 6 cups strawberries, quartered
  • 2 cups blueberries and/or raspberries
