1 1/2 cups
1/2 (3.4 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
sliced fresh strawberries
I thought this was ok, but everyone else thought it was really good. (I'm not a big fan of cool whip) My biggest problem with this recipe is that the prep time is WAY off. Fortunately I chose to make the crepes ahead of time, because it took at least 45 minutes just to cook the crepes. Add another 10 minutes to mix up the crepe batter, plus time to chop all the fruit and mix up the "sauce" and you are looking at a good hour and a half of preparation before chilling time.
I put the finished crepes on a plate, covered with foil, in the fridge overnight, and they were good as new next morning. I also used frozen blueberries, partially thawed, and that worked well too. (Tip: 16 oz strawberries is about 2 C chopped)
After reading about the time it took people to make the crepes, I decided to try something else.
I replaced the crepes with croissants. If you up the servings to 12 and use a 9x13 baking dish, a canister of rolled out croissant dough will fit just about perfectly. (You will need 1 canister for each layer) Pinch and seal the perferated triangles so that it's one big rectangle of dough. Stab holes in it with a fork so that air vents out and the dough doesn't rise. If it matters, I put holes in my dough about 5 or so minutes into baking it.
I made this for a work luncheon and people seemed to be pleased with it.
So good! Made this for a brunch and it was a hit! I made the crepes the night before and they kept very well. I used the entire package of vanilla pudding on accident but I think I'll do it that way from now on! Great recipe.
awesome recipe! I had thoght that the orange juice and the sour cream might be weird mixed into the other ingredients, but it was awesome. I'm fixing it again this weekend for brunch.
This was really delicious! As other reviewers have said, the prep time is way off. It wasn't hard to make, but the crepes were pretty time consuming. I accidentally bought cook & serve pudding instead of instant. I just mixed it with the OJ and sour cream and cooked it according to the directions on the box, and then chilled it and it worked out fine. So, if anyone else makes the same mistake, don't panic!
This has a very light, good taste, but wasn't very filling. My daughter didn't like it at all, my husband loved it. This was good, but not my favorite (I don't like sweet things for breakfast though). I made the crepes the evening before as another reviewer suggested. They were simple to make, just took a little time. The rest of the recipe was quick and simple.
I gave this a 4 b/c it takes a very long time to make when you factor in how long it takes to prepare all those crepes! However, it is DELICIOUS! When I make it again I may take the easy way out and buy the crepes at the grocery store...all the fruit and whipped cream mix would mask any store-bought flavors anyway.
I thought this was very good and different. I didn't have blueberries so I just added more strawberries. Thanks for the recipe. :)
