Strawberries 'n' Cream Trifle Recipe

Strawberries 'n' Cream Trifle Recipe

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe, which I lightened up by using less milk, reduced-fat whipped topping and angel food cake instead of pound cake. It's good made with fresh peaches or blueberries, too. —Pamela Gainer of Sand Ridge, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces)
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3 whole fresh strawberries


  • 1. In a bowl, whisk the milk and water. Whisk in the pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set; fold in the whipped topping. Cut cake into 1/2-in. cubes.
  • 2. Spoon a third of the pudding mixture into a 4-qt. trifle or glass bowl. Top with half of the cake cubes and sliced strawberries. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining pudding mixture. Garnish with whole strawberries. Yield: 12 servings.

"I carried this to a party tonight and it was a big hit. My son was disappointed because there was only a spoonful left over for him. I'll be making it again next week.

I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and fat free cool whip."

"Instead of fresh strawberries, I used the frozen. Thaw in micro-wave and layer with other layers. Just before topping with whipped topping I pour a cup of hot strawberry jello over top. The jello along with juice form the frozen strawberries sinks into the angel food cake and makes it delicious! :-) We call this our Christmas Trifle, b/c I make it every Christmas!"
