"I made this yesterday for a Memorial Day picnic and everyone loved it. Since so many say the pudding was too thin, I used 1/2 cup 2% milk and a 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. It was perfect. More calories, but well worth it."

"Tastes wonderful!! Had some trouble filling the berries, but I'm not a pro at that. My diet is very carb restricted and I wanted to eat more than 2 berries in one sitting so I used unsweetened flax seed milk (unsweetened almond milk would work fine too. I just didn't have any) instead of dairy milk. And I subbed the whipped topping with zero carbs by whipping up a batch of fresh whipped cream made from heavy whipping cream and Splenda before adding the extract. Would make this again!"

"I listened to to the other reviews and used less milk. I used 2/3 fat free milk but the same on everything else. Very good consistancy with a bag. Sprinked with chocolate curls. Perfect!!!"

"the cream was very thin, thus making piping it into the berries messy and difficult. Since the cream was thinner as well the berries didn't hold their shape well either. I'd recommend doubling the pudding part of the recipe to make it thicker. I also used it to make it more of a parfait instead. Taste was good though. I added additional almond extract however for a bolder flavor. Taste was good...the procedure needs some perfecting."

"Can you omit the almond extract when you use the cheesecake pudding? We never liked almond flavoring, so would any other one be OK?"

"A friend made these for Easter and we LOVE this delicious strawberry delight. We used 1 sm carton of heavy whipping cream to help the cream set up and used Jello's cheesecake instant pudding mix for a rich taste. We split each strawberry in half and decorated each 1/2 strawberry with the cream. We then took it a step further and drizzled a little bit of melted chocolate on the top of the cream. Very elegant and though it was not as low calorie, they were delicious and disappeared very quickly."
