Trifle - A Lighter Dessert

Memorial Weekend is the official kick off for summer and that means parties and grilling.  Many people will head to the lake or have a cookout this weekend.  Since special occasions always call for dessert, I am sharing a recipe that will have everyone coming back for seconds but is lighter in calories than most.  This trifle is easy to assemble as no real cooking is involved so practically anyone could make it.  It makes quite a bit so it is good for a large crowd.

White Chocolate Angel Trifle
1 store bought Angel Food cake, cut into cubes
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups blueberries
2 cups sliced kiwi
2  4 oz. packages of white chocolate pudding
3 cups of skim milk
1 8 oz. tub of reduced fat Cool Whip

Hopefully you have a pretty trifle bowl or a large clear bowl with straight sides.  Make pudding according to package directions.  When done, stir in the Cool Whip.  Put a layer of 1/2 Angel Food cake in the bottom of the bowl.  Top with a layer of strawberries, blueberries and kiwi, using half the fruit.  Spread 1/2 the pudding on top of the fruit.  Add the rest of the cake, the rest of the fruit and spread the remaining pudding on top.  Decorate the top with some fruit if desired.  This dessert will be better if it sits in the refrigerator a few hours.

You can substitute other fruit if you like such as raspberries or blackberries.  I must mention that I am not a fan of Angel Food cake or Cool Whip but that I really enjoyed this dessert recently.  It was just right with the grilled chicken, baked beans and salad that was served.  I think you'll find it is just right for those hot summer days ahead.

Have a wonderful weekend and make the most of your time off.  Relax with friends and family, get some exercise and fresh air.
