Angel-Berry Trifle

When I made this for a church function, it was favored as much as the “pecan pie cobbler” which is not diabetic friendly and is an incredibly decadent dessert in itself, especially when served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.   I like to keep  “diabetic friendly” alternative dessert recipes on hand for family get-togethers as it gives hubby and others something they can sink their spoons in to and stay on track.  If you prefer to have it the regular way, just use the “regular” supplies, i..e, whole milk, regular cream cheese, etc.  But I promise, you will like this one just as well.  And it looks so lovely layered in your trifle bowl or individual little clear plastic cups, or small mason jars.  How cute would that be!

Angel Berry Trifle  – 

1 ½ cups cold fat-free milk

1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix

1 cup (8 ounce) fat-free vanilla yogurt

6 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened and cubed

½ cup reduced-fat sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 carton (12 ounces) frozen reduced fat whipped topping, thawed, divided (I use 2 of the 8 ounce sugar free cool whips)

1 prepared angel food cake (18 inches) cut into 1-inch cubes

1 pint each blackberries, raspberries and blueberries


In a small bowl, whisk the milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes.  Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.

In a large bowl, beat the yogurt, cream cheese, sour cream and vanilla until smooth.  Fold in pudding mixture and 1 cup whipped topping (or 8 ounce container of cool whip).

Place a third of the cake cubes in a 4-1t. trifle bowl.  Top with a third of the pudding mixture, a third of the berries and half of the remaining whipped topping (I use half of the other 8-ounce sugar free container of cool whip).   Repeat layers once.  Top with remaining cake, pudding, and berries.  Serve immediately or refrigerate. 

Have fun and select your own berry combination – you could also use frozen mixed fruit and sugar free fruit pie filling, such as apple pie filling or cherry pie filling. You are only limited by your imagination on this one!
