Oh my gosh! This was SO GOOD! Very light & refreshing! It tastes like the Hawaiian Blizzard at DQ. I added sliced strawberries, extra pineapple, candied cherries, and extra Cool Whip to cover it all. I didn't have vanilla pudding, so I substituted banana cream pudding instead. It was FABULOUS! This recipe is going straight to my favorites collection. Thanks!
