Instant vanilla pudding mix is the key to this creamy, low-fat fruit topping from Cathy Adams of Parkersburg, West Virginia. It's delicious served over slices of angel food cake, too.

    This is a quick and delicious recipe. This topping is excellent served over fruit on dessert cups. I never thought to use buttermilk with a pudding mix and whipped topping. I will definitely make this again.

    Great little recipe. Yes it is nice on fruit or cake but can also be put in a pie shell for a quick, easy dessert. A very good use of buttermilk.

    This is soooo good. Easy to prepare for a light dessert of fruit, but really excellent over angel food cake. I have made it many times for company!!!
