This was originally given to me as a cannoli filling and although I still use it for that purpose, it also makes a great cream puff or cake filling as well as just a delicious thick pudding. A very old recipe - origin unknown.

I remember being able to buy this type of dessert mix in the supermarket years ago. I don't know if it's still available, but if not, you can now make it from scratch! It is not vegan cause gelatin is not vegan!
This is my favorite kind of summertime recipe. Cool, easy and no bake. It's also easy to adapt to a sugar free diet by substituting a sugar free cake and pudding and using skim milk instead of whole. The cook time listed is actually the time it takes to chill.
