Strawberry Banana Diet Delight

Last week was my husband Larry's birthday. Since he's a diabetic, I made him a special birthday treat. Strawberry Banana Diet Delight--it's his favorite. It's like a banana pudding with strawberries and of course made with nutra-sweet and low fat ingredients. We put a candle in the middle, sang "Happy Birthday", and he made a wish--although I thought he was praying, it took him so long. As a matter of fact McKinley blew out his candle and I had to go get the matches and relight it and Larry never knew it happened. That must have been some wish!

Strawberry Banana Diet Delight

1 small package of nutra-sweet strawberry jello
2 - 3 cups frozen strawberries (you can use fresh strawberries if they're in season)
3 -4 Tablespoons of water
2 packages nutra-sweet instant vanilla pudding
3 cups low fat or skim milk
1 cup light sour cream
1 small cool whip (8 0z)
1 box low fat vanilla wafers
2 large bananas, sliced

Put strawberries in a small bowl. If the strawberries are whole, slice them. Add the jello and water. Gently mix together and set aside. (If your strawberries are packed in juice or syrup, do not add the water.)

In a large bowl mix the pudding and the 3 cups of milk (I used a whisk) and beat for about 2 minutes until thickened.
Add the light sour cream and the Cool Whip and mix well.

Using half the ingredients (except the banana, you use all), layer vanilla wafers, pudding, strawberries and bananas. Do another layer of vanilla wafers, pudding and strawberries. I also crumble vanilla wafers on top.

**This is delicious and you really can't tell this is a diet dessert.
