Fruit & yogurt trifle-perfect for guests or the family

Now on to something more yummy!

This is a delectable, light, and less unhealthy dessert that tastes great all year but is especially yummy in the summer. We used to make it a lot for Fourth of July using blueberries and strawberries. I haven’t made it yet this season but when I do, I can update the page with a photo. If you make it, please send me a photo at!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-A store-bought angel food cake (if you get sugar free, I suggest strawberry with complementary fruit)

-A large container of Cool Whip-style whipped cream

-2 serving-size containers of yogurt (I use no sugar added). The yogurt needs to correspond with your fruit flavor. If you use more than one kind of fruit, have matching 1 container of corresponding yogurt (if you use strawberries and blueberries, have one of each flavor of yogurt)

-Fresh fruit (about a cup or two of each flavor…sorry, I eyeball it). I suggest berries or peaches, etc, not fruit such as cantaloupe

-A trifle dish like the one pictured here


Tear the angel food cake in half so that there’s two complete rings (top and bottom)

Place the bottom of the angel food cake in the bottom of the trifle dish

Pour one container of the yogurt over the cake

Cover the yogurt with cut up pieces of corresponding fruit to create a single layer

Cover the fruit with Cool Whip

Repeat that process with the top layer or angel food cake…place the cake on the Cool Whip, then the yogurt, then the fruit then a thick layer of Cool Whip for the top

-Garnish with fruit.

Our favorite is to make one layer of blueberries and one layer of cut-up strawberries then garnish the top with both fruits. We also like peach or just strawberry.

    This looks very good – I’ve only every used a mix of 2 fruit, but I’ll try this multi-mix as I always have fruit nourad that needs to be used up. From what it looks like in the pictures, you mixed fresh and frozen fruit – does that influence the amount of liquid you’ll get when you dig underneath the crispy surface, i.e. will there be more liquid?
