Trifles are such a great choice for large get together’s. They are a fabulously colorful center piece and serve many people on a low budget. Strawberry Pudding Trifle comes together in only 15 minutes without heating up the kitchen.
The idea for Strawberry Pudding Trifle came from making traditional banana pudding. I traded out the bananas for strawberries and added cream cheese to make the vanilla pudding layers that more rich and decadent. Trifles are also excellent to make ahead. In order for the crunchy layers to magically change into a cake-like consistency, it will need to sit for at least one hour, if not overnight. I made this version with low or no-fat options, but you can go full fat if you’d like. Try using my creamy Vanilla Custard instead of instant pudding.
