  Cherry Almond Parfait - Close Up  Cherry Almond Parfait

The other night, my BF’s brother came over to visit and ended up staying for dinner.  I really enjoy having guests, even unexpectedly, and I try to keep the freezer stocked with fast yet fun items I can warm up quickly.  I had three-cheese lasagne and garlic bread ready to go.  Surprisingly enough, although the items weren’t labeled “healthy”, they were very reasonable in calories and fat.  I even indulged in a small piece of each rather than making a separate meal for myself.

The grand finale was dessert, something I thought up on the way home, knowing my BF’s brother might join us for supper.  I picked up some sugar-free pudding and no-sugar-added cherry pie filling and created these yum-tastic Cherry Almond Parfaits.  Serve ’em up in a pretty glass, and you’ve got a spectacular happy ending.


  • 1 Sugar-Free Vanilla Pudding Cup (60 calories)
  • 1T Torani Sugar-Free Almond Syrup
  • 1/3 cup No Sugar Added Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1/4 cup Kashi GOLEAN Honey Almond Flax Cereal
  • 6T Reddi Wip Fat Free Whipped Topping


  • Blend sugar-free almond syrup into vanilla pudding
  • Ladle pudding into serving dish. (A pretty wine glass makes a nice presentation.)
  • Top pudding with pie filling.
  • Top pudding and pie filling with Kashi.
  • Swirl fat-free Reddi Wip on top.

Serves 1
