Peaches-n-Cream Goodness

Awhile back, someone brought a delicious fruit salad to a church potluck. I asked for the recipe, which she said was quite easy, and it is. However, I noticed when I used the canned tropical fruit salad (my favorite) then I would bring home the bowl still half full of goodies.
Or, perhaps, give the leftovers to a gal who runs a home daycare service. She said her kids love it.

Therefore, I did a bit of altering to make it mine own.

Here’s the recipe, the way I make it anyway


You need: a big restaurant size can of sliced peaches, drained of the syrup

3.4 ounce cheesecake flavor instant pudding, mixed according to directions on the package
use 1 1/2 cups pudding in the recipe then enjoy the rest all on its own

1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt

stir the creamy items together with a wire whisk

Fold in the peach parts.
Put into a pretty bowl, chill until ready to serve

I don’t have leftovers at a church potluck these days. Just as well, the nutritious peaches offsets the empty calories of the pudding.

that glass bowl is Made in USA, which I found on Clearance at a big box store about a month ago. I didn’t really need another bowl, but it is so pretty…

Yesterday, I saw the shelf is full again, of a similar design, but the bar code sticker says its glass is made overseas
Too many workers lost a job making something good….

    Ok, now I’ve gotta make this recipe – sounds creamy AND yummy! LOVE the bowl (would that constitute “Bowl Envy”? hehehe)

    the can of peaches was purchased at SAM’s Club. Label says weight 6lbs 10ozs.
    Back when I was checking in orders from a delivery truck, we called it a Number 10 size can.

    Actually, any can of fruit could be used. Originally, I made it with Tropical Fruit Salad. The gal from whom I first learned about it says Mandarin Oranges are good.

    Sometimes I put a serving in the blender with ice to make a smoothie.
    Good Stuff 🙂

    I’m with Pammie on the yummy part and my comment on the bowl–It is great how a pretty bowl shows off a tasty dish.

    One of the guys serving in the kitchen was amused at my tape, which identified contents, date, and Church.
    That’s a carryover from my jobs in foodservice, and having teenage sons raiding the fridge at all hours.

    Came home with about 1/3 of it. There was sooo much food at the potluck! only a few of the smaller dishes made it all the way to empty.

    Such a nice evening. And I got home in time for my tv shows 🙂
