Fruit Trifle

This dessert was requested for our Family Easter Celebration, which we had on the Saturday before Easter.  

The weather was perfect, and the food was delicious. 

This easy Fruit Trifle was a hit with everyone.

So easy and so pretty.  

It is really a great summer dessert, and would definitely be great to fix when the berries are in season.

If you want to make something pretty, and your heart so desires, here's how I did it:

Fruit Trifle

1 quart of strawberries, hulled, rinsed, and sliced
1 pint of blueberries, rinsed
1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
1 5.4 ounce box of instant vanilla pudding
1 - 14 ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup of cold milk
1 14-ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 prepared angel food cake (I bought an angel food cake already made from the Kroger bakery)

Cut angel food cake into (approximately) one-inch cubes.  You are going to make three layers.

Whip Heavy Whipping Cream until thick and creamy.  Whip in 1/4  cup of sugar.  Set in refrigerator.

With a handheld mixer, mix together instant vanilla pudding, milk, and sweetened condensed milk until mixed well and thick.

Fold cream into pudding.

Begin layers by placing one-third of angel food cake cubes into the bottom of a trifle bowl, layer pudding, and then fruit.   Layer two more times.  For the top of the last layer, I added one whole strawberry and sprinkled on more blueberries.

Serve to family and friends!!

  2. Yes, I was a court reporter. I should have kept a journal! It was a wonderful job, and I miss my co-workers terribly; however, I now have a lot more time to devote to my blog!!
