Couscous adds great texture to this pretty parfait. Serve it year-round by using whichever fruits are in season.

This was fine - just okay, IMO. I won't make it again. Maybe my expectations were too high, but the couscous gave the pudding a funky texture - I was expecting creamier, tapioca-like consistency, but my MIL asked, "what's the gritty stuff?" Pudding and fruit would have been fine - no need to add the couscous, unless, since it's whole wheat, you're absolutely desperate to add more fiber to your diet!
