Delicious Fruit Trifle

I know this is a repost from a year ago. But I was just dreaming of this trifle and wishing it was in my mouth right now. So delicious! Let me know if you try it with different fruits. Yum!


12-oz whip cream (I prefer to whip my own, it tastes SO much better, but you can cheat and use the frozen whipped topping stuff...just don't invite me over...just kidding!)
1 c. sour cream
1 (9 inch) angel food cake (ok, I did cheat and used the store bought variety)
1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
3 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 (15-oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
In a medium bowl, fold sour cream and unprepared pudding mix into the whipped topping. Cut the cake into 1-inch pieces.  Place 1/2 of cake in bottom of bowl, top with 1/2 of bananas, pineapple, and strawberries. Top with 1/2 of whipped topping mixture. Repeat layering until all ingredients are used. 

I did two layers, but this will depend on what size bowl you use. I know I don't have to say it, but I will just in case. If you are using a smaller dish than I used, you may do 3 layers, in which case you'll use a 1/3 of each ingredient on each layer. Got it? 

Make fan garnishes of whole strawberries by slicing from just below the stem and fan out. I cut the green part off, but you could leave it on as well.  Garnish assembled trifle with fanned strawberries. 

Now, I decorated with the bananas and pineapple too. But beware, because after it sat in the fridge the bananas on top went a little brown and it wasn't so pretty. I probably wouldn't do that again unless I was serving right away. BUT it tastes better if it's cold. 

Play around with different fruits too. The recipe I found suggested kiwi. But they make my mouth itch, which never is a good sign. 

Pin It!
