Picnic Pudding Jars

Picnic Pudding Jars make the perfect ending to a summer picnic or date night! This simple, make ahead, no bake dessert is light, creamy and refreshing with notes of sweet summer lemon and fresh berries. Made with layers of my 60 Second Lemon Pudding, cookie crumbs and homemade whipped cream, this easy summer treat comes together beautifully and is best enjoyed al fresco.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ c vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 c lemon pudding (try my 60 Second Lemon Pudding recipe!)
  • 6 oz fresh blackberries, washed and drained
  • 6 oz fresh raspberries, washed and drained
  • Fresh mint for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Set aside 2 (20oz) glass jars or 4 (8oz) glass jars, with lids.
  2. Crush the cookies into medium – fine crumbs, by using a food processor or a large plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the cream and the sugar. Using a hand mixer, beat the cream at high speed until medium – stiff peaks form. It should take 2-3 minutes.
  4. Next, begin to assemble the jars.

For 4 (8oz) Jars

  1. Start by placing 2 tablespoons of cookie crumbs into each jar.
  2. Add about ¼ cup pudding on top of the cookie crumbs. Then, an equal amount of whipped cream.
  3. Sprinkle a mixture of blackberries and raspberries on top of the whipped cream.
  4. Add about ¼ cup of pudding on top of the berries, then 2 tablespoons of cookie crumbs.
  5. The remaining layer should be about ¼ cup whipped cream.
  6. Top with a few more berries, and a sprig of mint if desired.

For 2 (20oz) Jars

  1. Start by placing 3 tablespoons of cookie crumbs into each jar.
  2. Add about ½ cup pudding on top of the cookie crumbs. Then, an equal amount of whipped cream.
  3. Sprinkle a mixture of blackberries and raspberries on top of the whipped cream.
  4. Add ½ cup pudding on top of the berries, then 3 tablespoons of cookie crumbs.
  5. The remaining layer should be about ⅓ cup whipped cream.
  6. Top with a few more berries, and a sprig of mint if desired.

 

  1. Close the jars with the lids and store in the fridge until ready to bring on your picnic. These jars are best when made at least 8 hours ahead and can be stored up to 2 days in advance.
