Ingredients

  • 2 Cups chopped fruit or berries
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • Pinch of grated lemon zest
  • 2 Cups vanilla or chocolate pudding, or Greek yogurt
  • 1 Cup cubed wedding cake, icing removed
  • Fresh berries, for garnish

Directions

To make the fruit compote, combine the chopped fruit or berries, sugar, and water in a small saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until fruit has become soft and most of the liquid has evaporated. Taste and add more sugar if needed.

In two tall glasses, layer the ingredients started with ½ cup of the pudding, ½ cup of the fruit compote, ½ cup of the cubed wedding cake, and another ½ cup of the pudding. Garnish with fresh berries.

Nut Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Nut Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
