No-Bake Strawberry Dessert Recipe

No-Bake Strawberry Dessert Recipe

Convenience items such as store-bought angel food cake, frozen strawberries and instant pudding mix make preparing this refrigerated delight as simple as can be. I whip up this refreshing strawberry dessert all year round. It's particularly attractive when served in a glass dish. —Sherri Daniels, Clark, South Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (10-1/2 ounces) angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (20 ounces) frozen unsweetened whole strawberries, thawed
  • 2 cups cold 1% milk
  • 1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed
  • Chopped fresh strawberries, optional

Directions

  • 1. Arrange cake cubes in a single layer in a 13-in. x 9-in. dish. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in strawberries. Pour over cake and gently press cake down. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.
  • 3. Spoon over gelatin layer. Spread with whipped topping. Refrigerate until serving. Garnish with chopped fresh strawberries if desired. Yield: 20 servings.

"Just a question. Do I use the juice from the thawed berries or do I discard it? I am reading the comments about the "globs". If I were to use fresh strawberries, would I need to add water to the gelatin mix? Sounds wonderful and I want to make ASAP. Thanks to anyone who can clarify this for me. Have to rate to post this comment. I am sure it will be five stars based on previous reviews."

"I have now made this several times, varying the fruit (and flavour of gelatin). It is very popular with my guests and family. One of my favourite combinations is to use frozen mixed berries in combination with raspberry gelatin, and using fresh raspberries as garnish on top of the dessert. Excellent recipe!"

"I made it with an angel food cake instead of the loaf. The gelatin with the strawberries when poured into the cake pieces ultimately turned it into a layer of goop. One could not discern the cake at all as it shows in the

picture. I will try it once more using the loaf."

"I made it, invited the family over to help eat it as only 2 of us. They all enjoyed it. When I make it again I'm not going to use as much whipped cream, I wanted to taste the pudding more.I also only used a half of a cake as I'd used the first half in another strawberry/jello recipe I'd had for many years. My husband said this one is a keeper!"

"This was possibly the biggest disappointment for a recipe that I had ever tried. People ate the Cool Whip and pudding part.... and threw away the cake part. The angel food cake and jello part becomes a heavy, dense glop that is similar to chewing gum. I would never, ever make it again."
