Diabetes: Berry Bread Pudding

A fruited, no-cook bread pudding!

Berry Bread Pudding

1 1/2 cup Blueberries, frozen, thawed (sliced strawberries or rasberries, frozen or fresh, can be used)
4 piece slice whole wheat bread, crusts removed
1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tsp Yogurt, vanilla, lowfat (optional)

Berry Bread Pudding


Combine the thawed berries and sugar (if desired). Layer a spoonful of berries on the bottom of a small 2 cup deep dish. Cover the berries and the bottom of the dish with a layer of bread. Spoon in most of the berries. Add another layer of bread and continue until the dish is full, finishing off with a layer of bread.
Cover the dish with plastic wrap. Place a plate or bowl over the top of the berry dish that fits just inside of it. Place a heavy object on top to press down on the fruit and bread layers. Refrigerate overnight. (Check the dish to be sure juice does not run over the top. You may need to replace the heavy object with a lighter one to prevent spills.)
Serve with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or a sprinkle of sugar.

Nothing could be better for the summer when fresh berries are available!
