My family loves a good dessert. Our favorites being Double layer pumpkin pie and Peanut butter pie. Those desserts though delicious, don't seem like they fit in very well with summer menu's. I recently found a recipe for this Strawberry Trifle on Facebook and it is a new family favorite. I have seen several different versions of it but this is how we like it.
This is the one I made for the fourth of July. I added blueberries to make it look more festive!
Strawberry Angel Food Trifle
1 box of instant vanilla pudding (5 serving size)
3 cups milk (to make the pudding)
angel food cake (I like to get a premade one in the bakery section)
frozen sweetened strawberries (24 oz or larger)
Cool whip (16 oz)
This is super easy to put together--make your pudding and let it set in the refrigerator. If you are making your angel food cake do that and let it cool.
About 4 hours before serving put your trifle together. On the bottom tear up half of your cake and place it on the bottom of your Trifle dish. On top of that put half of your pudding, spooned onto the cake. On top of the pudding put your strawberries and any other fruit you might like to add. You can add blueberries or bananas and it is delicious. Then cover that with Cool whip and repeat. On the very top it looks pretty to put some fresh strawberries. (I didn't have any this time)
Then put it in the refrigerator and tell your family not to touch it for 4 hours (that is the only hard part). That's it...easy peasy and so delicious! I think it would last a couple days in the refrigerator but I wouldn't know because my kids inhale it.:)
I wish there was some left right now!
On a personal note today my husband and I have been married 17 years.
It is hard to believe it has been that long...but as my husband pointed out at dinner tonight it is hard to believe how grown up our kids are getting! Sometimes I wish life would slow down just a bit.
My wedding bouquet (which hangs in our livingroom) has age gracefully in the last 17 years!
I hope everyone is enjoying your summer...
Thanks for visiting!
