This old-fashioned dessert tastes like the comforting long-cooked pudding Grandma used to make, but it really is quick and easy to prepare. The flavor is wonderful. We have it often because my whole family enjoys it. You can make it sugar-free, if you'd like, by using sugar-free pudding mix.
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
- 1 package (3 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 cup raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups plain yogurt
- Whipped topping and ground nutmeg, optional
- In a saucepan, combine pudding mix, milk and water; cook over medium heat until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the raisins and vanilla. Cool for 15 minutes; stir in yogurt. Spoon into individual desserts dishes. Chill for 2-3 hours. If desired, garnish with whipped topping and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Editor's Note: Sugar-free vanilla pudding mix can be substituted for the regular pudding.
