An angel berry trifle that’s perfect for Easter brunch made with fresh berries, angel food cake and an out of this world vanilla pudding and cream cheese custard.
If this angel berry trifle is not going to get you thinking of summer, I don’t know what will. This trifle is sunshine, it’s a glimpse of the summer we wish so desperately to come. Especially when here we are, Easter weekend, and it’s still snowing outside.
The great thing about this weekend is that Easter is at my sister’s house so that saves me from doing a lot of cooking, but as usual when we go over there, I am in charge of dessert. I usually have trouble figuring out what to make because I try and make something different every time. But not this time, I’ve been dreaming about this trifle and it’s perfect.
If you’ve never had a trifle before, I strongly strongly urge you to make this. A trifle is usually a layered dessert made with berries or fruits, a cake of some sort and whipped topping. I for one simply adore trifles. The best thing about them is that they’re not as bad as one may think. You can use fat free cream cheese, fat free yogurt and sour cream and sugar free pudding. Totally up to you, and I don’t really think it makes a difference in taste.
The beauty of this trifle is that it’s pretty quick to put together, and you could easily use frozen berries as well. I used strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, but really you can use whatever you have or like.
I’ve made many trifles before but I think a berry trifle is my favourite just because it does not feel like you’re eating something that’s completely bad for you. Do you have a favourite trifle?

In your mixer whisk the milk and pudding mix together for a couple minutes or until firm. Pour into another bowl and set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer add yogurt, cream cheese and sour cream and beat until smooth. Fold in pudding and 1 cup of the whipped topping.
Place a third of the angel food cake cubes in a 4 quart trifle bowl. Top with a third of the pudding mixture, a third of the berries and half of the remaining whipped topping. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining cake, pudding and berries. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
I used a store bought already prepared angel food cake, but you can make your own and use that instead.
