• Rabab Awada

Fruit trifle ( the easy way)


  • 32 oz (2 lbs container) fresh strawberries

  • 16 oz container pound cake, cubed

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1.5 oz package of instant vanilla pudding (the one with 6 servings)

  • 3 cups milk (for the pudding)

  • 8 oz tub of Cool Whip

  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Add the sugar to the strawberries, blueberries and toss to coat. Set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes, tossing at least once or twice more.

  • Prepare the pudding as directed. Gently fold in Cool Whip. Set aside in the fridge, til needed.

  • After the strawberries and blueberries have sat with the sugar for at least 30 minutes, strain the strawberry sugar syrup into a container with a pourable lip. (That way you won’t waste any of that sweet strawberry syrup.)

  • Layer your ingredients into the trifle bowl in this order: 1/3 pound cake, then pour 1/3 of fruit syrup over the pound cake, 1/3 of pudding mixture and then 2/5 of fruits. Repeat these layers twice more, the final layer of fruit should be slightly less. Decorate the top with some fruits.

  • Refrigerate fruit trifle for at least 2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
