In honor of the Olympics, I decided to make my red, white and blue trifle for dessert last night. It’s so easy to make and I used all sugar free products so that I could have some. This recipe uses lots of help from the grocery store but you can always make homemade versions instead of store bought. I end up using the pint of blueberries and a whole package of strawberries and I never add the banana.
This is also a nice dessert to make for the Fourth of July or any patriotic holiday.
Red, White, and Blue Trifle
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1 (4 ounce pkg.) cheesecake flavor instant pudding
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed
16 ounce frozen pound cake, thawed
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup sliced banana
Mix together the milk and pudding mix and beat with a wire whisk for 1-2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in the thawed Cool Whip.
In a trifle bowl or large glass bowl, layer half the cake cubes, half the fruit, and half of the pudding/Cool Whip mixture. Repeat layers, ending with pudding/Cool Whip mixture.
Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
Makes 12 servings.
