Happy 100th Birthday Mother Teresa!

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
August 26, 1910- September 5, 1997

 Mother Teresa's 100th Birthday is being honored worldwide on August 26th.  There are many resources to follow a long but be sure to watch Donna-Marie's blog.  You can check over at my place for a craft idea too!

We thought we'd make a special dessert to celebrate this occasion of love!

This is a really easy No-Bake Vanilla Jell-O Pie
We used fresh blueberries and whipped cream to represent Mother Teresa's blue and white Sari
*This post is an update since the first pie we made*
If you used food coloring or made a chocolate pie, it might look like this:
~We tried our best to get the skin color just right on this one but it turned out a little dark than expected~
(See Instructions)

2 Small Boxes of Vanilla Jell-O Pudding 
(You can buy the non-cooking if you would like to avoid heating on the stove!)
4 Cups of Milk
Large (9oz) Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Approximately 2-3 Cups Fresh Blueberries
Whipped Cream
Red, Yellow, & Blue Food Coloring(Optional)
**Note:  Alternately, you could use Chocolate Pudding mix or Banana Creme if you don't want to use vanilla.  We ended up making a Banana Creme for our Associate Pastor**

Follow the instructions on the Jell-O Pudding Mix Box
(Basically just whisking the pudding mix with milk)
The first time, we added red, blue, and yellow food coloring to the vanilla pudding, attempting to get an olive skin tone, which was very hard to do!  We ended up with a tan skin color.  The photo in the beginning of the post shows the Vanilla option and the Banana Creme looked much the same. 
Pour into Graham Cracker Crust 
Use fresh blueberries and whipped cream to design Mother Teresa's Sari and face.

"Everything depends on how we love each other."
~Mother Teresa~
