"This was incredibly easy to make. The star of the show was the pudding mixture. Who knew that sour cream could make such a difference! This was my first time ever making a strawberry trifle and it was so good that both of my kids had seconds. I made the angel food cake from scratch and while that was being prepared, I sliced and marinated the strawberries in sugar/water. The trifle cream is not very sweet so I wanted to make sure the strawberries were super sweet. Now I know what I'll be making for potlucks and holidays!"

"This was my first trifle to make and it was a hit with everyone. I prepared it as a desert for a Christmas party last year and even friends that were dieting could not resist it. I mixed diced mango into the mixture and added blackberries in addition to the strawberries. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream as suggested by another reviewer. I would use plain yogurt in the future as the flavored one made the trifle too sweet. Overall, this was a fruit filled, yummy desert."

"This recipe is the BOMB! This was by far the best trifle recipe I've ever had. I did lighten it up a bit...non fat milk, lite sour cream, sugarless pudding, lite cool whip instead of whipped cream. I used pound cake instead of angel food which probably put some saved calories back in the recipe. No matter, this was THE BEST!"

I also like the fact that it wasn't too soggy, compared to other trifles I've had. I used pound cake and cool whip instead of angel food and whipped cream. 2 containers (16 oz. each) of strawberries was perfect (wasn't sure how many strawberries equalled 4 cups)."

The last time I made it, I drained a can of crushed pineapples and mixed it with the pudding/yogurt. I didn't have fresh strawberries so I used strawberry pie filling instead. I top with pecans and toasted coconut. I like that you can make it as is or change it up with the pudding flavor and fruit."
