Author: Jenn


  • 1 4.6-oz package cook & serve vanilla pudding
  • 1 3-oz package cook & serve tapioca pudding
  • 1 large can mandarin oranges - keep the juice
  • 1 large can pineapple tidbits - keep the juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Other fruit to add in such as: chopped apples, sliced bananas, sliced strawberries and/or grapes


  • Using a mesh strainer, drain the cans of fruit into a large measuring cup. Add water to the juice if needed in order to make it equal 2-1/2 cups. Add in 1/2 cup lemon juice, so juice should equal 3 cups.
  • Pour both puddings into a medium size saucepan. Add in juice and stir. Heat on medium, stirring until pudding is thickened. Take off heat and let cool.
  • When cool, add in mandarin oranges, pineapple and any other fruit you desire. Serve it up and enjoy!
