Fat-free, sugar-free vanilla pudding is layered with sauteed pears and raspberries for an elegant, festive and super-easy dessert.


Butter flavour cooking spray

1 spray(s)


3 large, d'Anjou, peeled, quartered, cored and cut into small chunks

Ground nutmeg

¾ tsp(s), divided

Fat-free sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix

2 oz, two 1-oz boxes

Fat-free skim milk

4 cup(s), cold


2½ cup(s), fresh

Peppermint leaves

6 piece(s), fresh, sprigs

Vanilla extract

2 tsp(s), rum-flavored


  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add pears. Cook pears over medium-high heat, stirring often, until lightly browned and softened, about 6 minutes; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Toss pears and remove from heat; let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare pudding according to package directions using fat-free milk; stir in extract and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Let pudding stand 5 minutes until set.
  3. To make parfaits, spoon about 1/3 cup of pudding into each of six 8- to 10-oz wine or parfait glasses, or champagne flutes. Top each with about 2 1/2 tablespoons of pears and then 6 raspberries. Next, top each with another 1/3 cup of pudding, 1 1/4 tablespoon of pears and 6 raspberries.
  4. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 6 hours. Garnish with mint sprigs just before serving. Yields 1 parfait per serving.


You can turn this recipe into one large dessert instead of individual parfaits, if you prefer. Just layer all the ingredients in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart glass bowl and then spoon into small bowls to serve.The parfaits can be made up to 6 hours ahead; garnish with mint just before serving.
