1 pkg (4-serving size) sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
2 tbsp toasted sliced almonds, divided
1 cup thawed sugar-free frozen whipped topping
1 can no-sugar-added cherry pie filling, save out 8 cherries for garnish, if desired
Into a large mixing bowl, pour the milk and 1/4 teaspoon of the almond extract; add the pudding mix. Beat with a wire whisk 2 to 3 minutes until thickened.
Chop half the almonds and add to the pudding; gently stir in the whipped topping.
Mix the remaining almond extract into the pie filling.
Alternately spoon pudding mixture and pie filling mixture into 8 parfait glasses.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Before serving add one of the reserved cherries to the top of each parfail and sprinkle with the sliced almonds.
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.
