Red White and Blue Trifle

Celebrate the 4th of July with this fabulous dessert. Lower in fat and calories than most trifles, this layered dessert is both beautiful AND delicious -- just right for that Fourth of July cookout!

We also like Desert Picnic Salad (Tastes & Treasures cookbook, page 132) thanks to Historymakers Kax and Bob Herberger's family memories of picnics.

Red, White and Blue Trifle


One 8-oz. container Cool Whip Free (thawed)

1 sugar-free vanilla pudding snack with 60 calories or less 

Half of a 13-oz. angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 5 cups cubed)

2 cups chopped strawberries

2 cups blueberries

2 cups raspberries


In a medium-large bowl, thoroughly fold pudding into Cool Whip. 

In a large glass bowl (or trifle dish, if you've got one), evenly layer half of each ingredient: cubed angel food cake, Cool Whip mixture, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. 

Repeat layering with remaining ingredients. Serve, or chill until ready to serve!
