Layers of creamy peanut butter and pudding make this easy no bake White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Pie a must make for dessert this holiday season.
*I am partnering with the American Dairy Association as one of 10 bloggers creating recipes for the Cooking Together to Give Gallons program for those in need.
Is it just me, or does this time of year seem better for pies? I mean, I do enjoy a good pie all year long, but for some reason I like it even more in the holiday season.
Speaking of holidays, do you decorate for the Christmas season over the long Thanksgiving holiday? We usually spend that Saturday pulling out all the boxes and fluffing the tree branches. After years of a real tree, we finally broke down the other year and bought a nice “fake” tree at Target.
It actually kind of looks real from across the room. Plus, once you load it with all the snowmen ornaments and icicles, it’s hard to tell. I just keep a pine scented candle on hand for when people come over to visit.
Now all I need is a blanket and a Thin Mint Latte, and I’ll be ready to enjoy the warm cozy atmosphere of Christmas.
This winter I am partnering with the American Dairy Association Mideast and their Cooking Together to Give Gallons program. There are so many people across our country who are not as fortunate to have a warm home with a Christmas tree and a fridge full of food and milk.
Did you know that milk is one of the most requested items at food banks? Unfortunately, it is rarely donated. This holiday season, ADA is partnering with the Great American Milk Drive to help deliver milk to families that are in need. We all know that dairy is important for building strong bones and keeping us healthy.
How can you help???
The American Dairy Association will donate 25 cents for every “like”, comment, or share of each of the bloggers’ recipes on their Facebook page starting on Giving Tuesday, December 1st through December 11th, up to $3,000. Please head over and help out by sharing and liking all the recipes shown there.
One way to add more dairy to your diet is in holiday baking. Yes, you heard me. You can bake and get a serving of dairy. Pretty sweet, huh?
Adding milk to those holiday dishes can add calcium and nutrients. Adding milk to cookies and pie crusts encourages browning as well. Buttermilk and Greek yogurt are also other ingredients that are full of protein and great to use in baking recipes.
I was craving a creamy pie, so I kept it simple and went with a no-bake option. See, milk is good for non-baking recipes too!
I mixed cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and peanut butter together for a thick creamy layer of cheesecake. Then I topped that with a pudding mixture made with 2% milk. Booyah! There’s a serving of dairy and protein in that creamy pie slice.
Perfect health food for your next holiday party. Wink, wink!
