Why turn to store-bought pudding — which is often filled with artificial colors and flavors — when you can make it yourself in a matter of minutes with real ingredients like strawberries, low-fat milk, and Greek yogurt? This recipe is so simple that the kids can easily help too. Garnish each luscious bowlful with shaved dark chocolate, fresh berries, or a dollop of light whipped cream if desired, and serve as a special after-school snack, a better-for-you dessert, or a Valentine treat.

144 per serving
- 8 ounces frozen strawberries
- 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup 0%-fat strawberry Greek yogurt
Thaw the strawberries slightly. Place the strawberries and milk in a blender, and blend until completely pureed. Set aside.
Place the sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium-size saucepan and whisk until combined. Gradually whisk in the milk/strawberry mixture. Add the vanilla extract.
Place over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and continue to simmer, stirring gently, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt. Continue stirring gently to break up any bubbles that may have appeared on the top. Spoon the mixture into 6 individual bowls and chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
