Strawberries and Peaches Dessert

If you're looking for a light and delicious summertime dessert, this is it!!!
We call this "Maria's Stuff" at my house, because this recipe came from a dear teaching friend of mine whose name is Maria.

You will need:
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 angel food cake
12 ounces cool whip
1 can peaches
fresh strawberries

Prepare the pudding mix following the directions on the package using 3 cups of milk.

Break half of the angel food cake into pieces and place in a decorative bowl.


Cover the cake with half of the prepared pudding.

Top this layer with one third of the cool whip.

Drain the juice from the peaches and lay the peaches in a layer on top of the cool whip.
(Sorry I lost this picture.)


Top the peaches with another layer of cake, pudding, and cool whip.

Slice the strawberries and form a layer on top of the cool whip.

Add the last layer of cool whip and garnish with a couple of whole strawberries.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

This recipe can be prepared with low calorie and fat free ingredients!!!

Sometimes I make this in a decorative pedestal bowl that is tall and narrow.  I try to place the strawberries and peaches close to the edges so that the layers show.
This is a pretty dessert for showers and special occasions.
