This was the first Independence Day that we were not in Minnesota and there were a few things other than friends and family that we were missing. One thing in particular was my sisters’ berry trifle. This easy to make dessert is not only great to eat, it’s pretty to look at! Along with our other desserts and yummy things we made for the fourth, I decided to make tribute to my sister and the rest of our family in Minnesota and make this too. You should try it!
1.5-2 lbs of fresh strawberries halved
1 pint of blueberries
1 pint of black berries or raspberries….OR both!
1 packet of instant vanilla pudding (we used sugar free)
1-2 containers of cool whip-lite
Angel food Cake ripped up into medium sized pieces (I just bought a pre made one, but you can make your own too)
A big serving bowl or a trifle dish if you own one
You’ll want to make your pudding and let it cool. In your bowl, you’re going to layer your angel food cake, pudding, cool whip and strawberries. You’ll repeat this layering until you get to the top (just like lasagna). On the top layer incorporate your other berries.
I liked to let it sit for 20 min or so in the refrigerator before serving so the pudding soaks into the cake a little.
