My sister shared this recipe with me. She served the fruit in wine goblets, topped with the pudding. For large groups, serve it in a big salad bowl. Either way, it's refreshing and delicious. -Michelle Masciarelli, Torrington, Connecticut

"I think the "boiled egg" is the sliced banana. Hope this helps :)"

" This makes me think of Thanksgiving and Christmas entertaining, providing a less rich alternative to the usual desserts...

I wonder if thawed fruit, such as strawberries, could be used, in the topping, using the saved juice, to make it pink coloured, maybe using sugar free pudding, fat free (flavoured) yogurt.......
