    VickyJ's Note:

    This is a tropical twist on a recipe I found in a magazine. I used one 11 oz can of mandarin oranges, but you can adjust how much you use to your own tastes. You can also use Vanilla instant pudding, and 1 - 2 tsp of coconut extract. You can easily double the recipe if your dessert glasses are taller.

    1. 1
      Pour milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min or until well blended.
    2. 2
      Spoon half of the pudding evenly into 4 dessert glasses, and drop a few mandarin orange slices into the pudding.
    3. 3
      Let pudding set for 5-10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Cover with few mandarin slices, touching the edge of glass.
    5. 5
      Top orange slices with a spoonful of sheredded coconut, rest of pudding, then the rest of coconut.
    6. 6
      There is no set amount for each serving, just divide the layers evenly for four servings. You can also get creative with your ingredients -- like substituting bananas for the oranges. I think two average-sized bananas would work.

      May I ask, can I be the new Parfait Zaar Czar? Made for PAC Spring 2010.

      These were quite good! I used vanilla sugar-free pudding and added the coconut extract, as suggested. The combo of flavors was very refreshing and made for a perfect no-guilt dessert for me and DH. I love the versatility of this as well, since you can mix and match fruits and/or pudding flavors. Thanks Vicky!

      How can something so incrediby simple taste so amazing??? This is a fantastic recipe - everybody thoroughly enjoyed this guilt-free treat! The flavours go perfectly together. I did the vanilla pudding & coconut extract method because I couldn't find coconut pudding. My guests were dreaming up new concoctions for me to try using different fruit & pudding flavours - lol!
