Red, White and Blueberry Trifle



A heavenly mixed berry trifle made with summer fresh blueberries, strawberries, white chocolate pudding, angle foods cake and cream. A beautiful guiltless dessert that would make your July 4th table proud.

I gave some of this to my dessert-loving brother and he raved about it and told me to make sure I let you all know how fabulous this is. He's right, this exceeded my expectations and I probably ate more than I should have, oops!

Using store bought angel foods cake makes this quick and easy to prepare and no need to heat up the kitchen, but you can use a box mix or make it from scratch if you prefer, whatever you decide this will still be fabulous!

Calories: 169.1 • Fat: 0.4 g Protein: 2.5 g Carb: 38 g Fiber: 3.0 g Sugar: 16.5 g 

Sodium: 102.8 mg  


Ingredients:
  • 10 oz angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes*
  • 2 pints strawberries, sliced
  • 2 pints blueberries

For the cream filling:
  • 6 tbsp fat-free sweetened condensed milk (I used Borden Eagle)
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • 1 package sugar-free white chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 12 oz fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions:

Whisk the condensed milk and water in a bowl. Whisk in the pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set; fold in the whipped topping.

Arrange half of the cake in the bottom of a 14-cup trifle dish. Sprinkle evenly with a layer of blueberries. Spread half of the cream mixture over the blueberries and gently spread (I piped it using a plastic bag and cut the corner off). Top with a layer of strawberries. Layer the remaining cake cubes on top of the strawberries, then add more blueberries and top with the remaining cream mixture. Finish with the remaining strawberries and blueberries, arranging them in a pretty pattern. Cover and refrigerate at least one 1 hour.

*I only used 10 oz of a 16 oz cake.

  1. This looks amazing. But, I am curious why it looks so white if there is there is chocolate pudding in the filling? Maybe it is just my computer. I will try this this summer!

  5. Raquel, it's white chocolate pudding! :)

    I'm not sure how the points change with regular pudding, I would guess it may add a point.

  10. Looks beautiful! Is the fat-free condensed milk also known as fat-free evaporated milk? Or are you referencing sweetened condensed milk?
    Thanks for the clarification!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Eagle Brand has regular, low fat, or fat-free condensed milk. Don't use evaporated.

  11. Will definitely be making this, I love blueberries, and I LOVE making trifles :)!

  14. Oh...my...gosh that looks TO DIE FOR!!!!! I tried your black bean salad recipe and LOVED it!!!!!!! I cant wait to try this one!

    ReplyDelete
  15. That is the prettiest trifle and I bet so delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow this looks wonderful! Sweet condensed milk also comes in fat free, it is not evaporated milk so dont make that mistake. Condensed milk is very thick. It is found on the baking isle.
    This looks beautiful, light and refreshing, I cannot wait to try it!

  17. Christina, a trifle dish is a clear dish that sits on a pedistal. If you have a local walmart they have them for $7-10. You can use any clear dish that has depth. The beauty of this dessert is the layers so you need something you can see through. If you do not care to see the layers you could use any large container.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The fat-free sugar-free white chocolate pudding is VERY good!! The milk Gina is talking about is fat-free sweetened condensed milk. When I make a trifle, I use about 1/4 cup less milk than the recipe calls for. I use skim milk for half the milk and fat-free half and half for the rest of the milk. It is thick and creamy!

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is AS tasty as it is PRETTY so I hope you all make this!!

    Christina, as someone mentioned a trifle dish is a must so you can see the layers. You should be able to find them wherever they sell kitchen gadgets.

    It Is What It Is- I will come over and cut your strawberries! :)

    They sell fat free sweetened condensed milk in a can, Borden sells on, so does Carnation.

    J Beaman - yes it really is delicious!! So glad I tried it!

    1. I made this for a dinner party, and not only was it the most beautiful thing I've ever made, it was absolutely delicious!!!! The whole trifle was eaten with only 1/2 cup left for me to take home. I will make this again and again, something so beautiful and light in calories/fat is amazing!!!

  20. I make various versions of this...sometimes I only use fruit, mo cake or pudding and serve with whipped cream on the side BUT I buy cheap trifle bowls at Ikea or Christmas Tree Shop and bring them when I go to friends house for a BBQ and let them keep the bowl as a gift.

    1. What a great idea!!! I will definitely get some inexpensive trifle dishes, and give as a gift next time. I love that idea! The dessert is soooo beautiful, and delish!!!

    2. Also check Goodwill, Salvation Army or St. Vincent de Paul shops. Inexpensive, lovely items and you do a good deed by spending money at these sites.

  25. This would be perfect for a 4th of July pool party! It looks light and delicious!!

    Does this need to be refrigerated until served? Are trifle bowls a standard size?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Susan!

    Christine, mine is a 14 cup trifle dish. I think they are standard but I could be wrong. As you can see this is over 14 cups!

  27. How do you cut this badboy and serve it Gina?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mmmm if I have a request for dessert this July 4 I know what I'm bringing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You don't cut it, you spoon it! Get a large spoon and serve it in bowls.

    And yes you should keep this refrigerated before serving. Leftovers can be refrigerated too. I ate this for 3 days and it was just as tasty on day 3!

  37. This looks soo good. Too bad I'm allergic to chocolate. I think I'll try it with the French Vanilla pudding.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You could use any berries you like.

    Raquel no but many bites I took were just fruit and it was yummy! I don't know off hand the n.i. for just the cake.

    Sharon I don't think white chocolate pudding contains any chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ohmygoodness - I made this, too, a few weeks ago adding bananas (b/c I love banana pudding and wanted that idea) and using vanilla pudding. It is SO delish and easy and cant' wait to make it again.

  45. amybart - yes I guess I am a guinea pig!!

    Anonymous- I've had those spoons so long I can't remember where I got them.

    Susan D - I personally used a measuring cup to serve since I wanted to see how many cups it made, but any large spoon should work.

    1. WW sells serving spoons that measure 3 sizes and have handles long enough to serve the trifle.

  46. I've made a dessert just like this twice in the last few months. I add raspberries when I make it to make it extra berry-y. I was making it from memory and forgot about doing pudding between the layers -- I was just using FF Cool Whip. It's a very satisfying dessert without a ridiculous amount of calories, esp. when you use FF/sugar free ingredients. Yum!

  47. I looove trifles- they are so easy but always tasty and a big hit because they just look so fantastic. This is a great combo!

  49. So glad you liked it, I love trifles too because they look so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  50. For the people asking about the condensed milk.... I just have to say that I am too cheap to pay for that (over $2 a can at my local store) and you don't really need the extra sugar as there is plenty of sweetness already in the cake, the pudding and the whipped cream. I made this using 1 1/2c fat free milk instead of water, leaving out the condensed milk completely, and it turned out great!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I will be adding the to my July 4th menu! Thanks for sharing.

  52. i made this today. made my own angel food cake and added white chocolate shavings to the cake. the recipe was delicious! served it as dessert at a bbq and everyone loved it! thanks for a great recipe.

  53. Gina - I used sugar free angel food cake and it was fabulous. Would that change the points+ value?

  54. Very simple to make, very pretty to serve, and tastes yummy! Thanks Gina

  55. I'm not sure how the points would change, you would have to plug it into recipe builder.

  62. I will be making this for our friend's 4th of July party! I don't have a trifle dish, but I have a blue clear bowl, that I'll use. I like the idea of adding some bananas and maybe raspberries into it. I am not a fan of blue berries, but for the sake of the day, I'll use them. Thanks Gina, another amazing recipe!

  63. I'm going to make this for a BBQ tomorrow, it looks delicious! I wasn't able to find the fat free condensed milk though.. I checked 3 different grocery stores, but they only had lowfat. I also couldn't find sugar free white chocolate pudding. I bought cheesecake flavor instead, hope its just as good!

  67. Made this spectacular dessert yesterday for our cookout! Easy to assemble...looked just as amazing (well, almost) as Gina's did! Was THE hit of the party! Not one single blueberry was left in the bowl. Easy to find the FF sweetened condensed milk at my local grocery store. It was about double the price though. With about half the can left over, I will make another batch of this delicious dessert this week. Maybe my husband will get some this time!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Gina...I'm making this for my party tonight. How far in advance can I assemble this so it doesn't turn to mush?

    ReplyDelete
  69. So glad this was a hit, I knoew it would be!!

    You may want to assemble it without adding the top layer of fruit until you are closer to the party. It won't turn to mush, but you want the fruit on top to look fresh. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  82. This was such a lovely centerpiece to our dessert table at yesterday's 4th of July BBQ and was promptly devoured. No one could believe it was made using FF ingredients.

  90. Made this for 2 different July fourth cookouts, it was a hit at both!!! I made cheesecake pudding one day and white chocolate the other and they were equally as tasty!!! It not only looked beautiful, but tasted delicious!!! It was also nice to have a 'healthier' alternative dessert. YUM!!!!

  91. I made this as well as two other recipes of yours this past weekend - I have to say finding your website is just what I needed to mix things up with my meal planning . having lost about 128 pounds with WW things were getting stale , thank you so much for all these wonderful new recipes

    ReplyDelete
  92. I also made this on the 4th and used a sugar free angel food cake to further lower the calories. My pudding didn't get very firm but it was still delicious. My friends couldn't believe it was a "diet" dessert! I'm thinking of making it again for a family reunion this weekend!

  105. For those challenged by slicing the strawberries, use a handy dandy egg slicer! For this recipe, remove the strawberry stem first. But in the past I've kept the stem on, don't cut all the way through, and then fan the strawberry slices for a pretty decoration.

  111. HI. I just wanted to write to say I have tried a couple different recipes now on your site and everyone of them have turned out amazing. I am fascinated with this site and always looking for what you will come up with next. I just made this dessert for my nephews birthday party and it was a bigger hit than the birthday cake. I made this and the buffalo skinny dip. NO LEFTOVERS! Thank you so much for this site. The items have been easy to find and recipes easy to follow. ~Amanda~

  112. Made this dessert today...yummy! Thanks for the recipe. My husband's family loved it. My store is a little lame...they didn't carry the fat-free condensed milk or white chocolate pudding, so I used reg condensed milk and vanilla pudding.

  115. I just wanted to say that I have made so many of your recipes it's like you live in my house with me. That might seem a little creepy, but it's true!
    I know it's gross and against all the rules but I was really feeling the need for berries lately even though it's December and I totally made this recipe with frozen berries. It was not as good, I'm sure, but it fed my berry needs and made my family very happy!

    ReplyDelete
  116. hello im new to your website...i have made a brownie trifle before and it asked for sweetened condensed milk and in my opinion and familys and was wayyyy to sweet. would it completely change the taste if i use regular milk? would it not be sweet enough or thick enough if i left the sweetened condensed milk out? thank you for your beautiful recipes!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. This isn't overly sweet but you could just leave it out.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Gina, any ideas on how to make this delicious dessert festive for the holidays!!!

  120. This looks awesome. Is there anything that can be substituted for the pudding mix? It contains petroleum-based food dyes and I avoid those. Love your recipes. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  121. O.k. so this looks so yummy but if I made it fat free and suger free my husband might kill me (trust me he can tell lol) so can you use the not so healthy stuff instead or will it come out different other than not as healthy?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can use regular ingrediants. I sprinkled my strawberries with sugar and let them soak for a bit. I used regular cool whip without mixing it with anything. When you start layering, put your strawberries on top of the angel food cake so the cake absorbs the juice. Lovely!

  122. My Mum has been making a variation of this for years. It was always my favorite during summer bbq's. She always used vanilla pudding, but I'm going to show her this recipe with the white chocolate. I bet that makes it fantastic. Another variation is banana pudding with cut up strawberries and bananas.

  127. My Son in Law made this for us on Mother's Day...there was nothing left. It was sooo delicious and refreshing. Being a WW member, it was guilt free eating!!!

  128. I made this last night for a mothers day dinner.....AMAZING! I usually leave any leftover desserts with my sis or mom but not last night buddy, i took it home and can't wait to finish it off tonight!! I couldn't find white chocolate pudding so I used cheesecake instead. I'm sure it would be good with the other but i loved the cheesecake so well i'm not sure i can make the switch. I used blackberries and raspberries also. I'm new to WW and it's so nice to think that something that taste this good can actually be okay to eat.....I know I can keep doing this.

    LOVE this site!!! Every meal this week has come from your recipes and I couldn't be happier or more inspired. Been on WW for almost 4 weeks and lost 15 pounds so far. This is actually fun!

    Thanks in advance

  132. Made it for a party, mine wasn't as pretty as Gina's but it sure tasted good! Made a few changes, my strawberries and blueberries weren't the most ripe so I made a simple syrup a few of the berries (was too chicken to use Splenda so I used regular sugar :/ ) I too wasn't able to find fat free condensed milk so i used regular. Used fat free everything else and substituted half the water for fat free half and half. LOVED the white chocolate- That was genius Gina!
    So my version wasn't quite as WW friendly, will continue to search for the FF condensed milk and hopefully next time my berries will be sweeter!

    Thanks Gina! This made the dinner party awesome!

  133. Went to 4 stores, couldn't find the white chocolate pudding anywhere. Bought cheesecake pudding instead, hoping it turns out good. It was either cheesecake or vanilla. Thought cheesecake might be better.

  135. I used fat free cheesecake pudding and it turned out fantastic!

  136. I made this for our Memorial Day bbq and it was a huge hit! I didn't have enough blueberries, so I used blackberries for the first layer. I wasn't able to find the white chocolate pudding, so like alot of folks I used cheesecake flavor. We all loved it, and the family has already requested I make it again this week!

  137. I made this for our Memorail Day BBQ. It was wonderful. The pudding mix was a little runny, so I am not sure if I did something wrong. Either way it was gone!

  138. My sister & I make this dessert, but we use only Whipped topping...not the pudding. It's good that way, too. Since I am diabetic, I can use sugar free cake and sugar free whipped topping.

    ReplyDelete
  139. My sister made something like this about a month ago but with just pain whip cream. It was good, but not WOW. I made a double recipe and served this one today at a BBQ for our friends and people fought over the left overs! The white choc in the whip cream makes all the difference, gr8 low cal tip. thanks!

  140. Hi Gina -Do you think it could refrigerate overnight or will it get too soggy?

  141. What size pudding mix do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  142. I had the pleasure of eating this at a BBQ yesterday, and immediately asked for the recipe. The taste was amazing, and the dish was beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Anyone knows what she means by "Fold in the whipped topping" part of the recipe? I'm confused about that part.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Folding in is not like stirring it together. You take a spoon or spatula and scrape from the bottom of the bowl and fold the pudding up over the top of the whipped cream and keep doing this until it's all combined. Stirring whipped cream breaks it down and it looses it's air and then isn't 'fluffy' anymore. Hope this helps and makes sense.

  147. I am new to trifles and I was wondering how you transport them without spilling over. I want to make this for a July 4th party next weekend thats about 30 mins away. Also can I refrigerate before the drive and just set it out at the party? Thanks!

  148. I am having a hard time finding the white choc. pudding can I use another flavor instead?

  151. Question-Crazy question maybe but, do we actually mix the pudding according to the package first then the water and condensed milk?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Anonymous, don't make the pudding according to the package, instead whisk the water and condensed milk then add the pudding. After letting it set fold in the Cool Whip. Hope this helps.

  152. @ anonymous no just the water condensed milk and pudding get mixed together if you made it the way the box says then add the other it would completly change the points!

  153. As I was making this yesterday for a bbq we were going to my husband saw all the non-fat ingredients and was complaining that it would be "non-taste." Made him try it and he went back for seconds! Very good and very easy to make.

  154. I made this today for dinner tonight! It looks wonderful!

    This is absolutely the yummiest, lowest points value trifle I have ever made. Made it first for a 4th of July cookout, and then again for the family over the weekend due to popular demand. Just a tip...you can add fresh raspberries to this to make it even more colorful if you would like. Thanks for sharing! ;-)

  158. What size pudding mix?

    ReplyDelete
  159. We recently moved into a new home. I made this trifle and then invited the neighbors over for dessert. They said it was the best 'meet the neigbours' they'd ever had. So easy and delish. Thanks!

  160. I made this over 4th of July as written and am going to make it for an Olympic Opening Ceremony party tonight. This time I think I'm going to try a lemon pudding if I can find it to add to the lightness and freshness ;-) Love your site, Gina. I can't even count how many of your recipes I've made!!!

  161. We made this yesterday for the 2nd time. It's our favoite dessert. and we don't have to feel too guilty eating it. It's so easy to make and so good, I could eat the whole thing by myself. But I do refrain....

    ReplyDelete
  162. Made this for dessert tonight, but my local grocery store did not have white chocolate pudding in the sugar free option so I subbed sugar free cheesecake pudding. So good!!!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I made this for dinner the other night when we had friends over. It was a huge hit! My guests even had seconds! I also had trouble finding the White Chocolate pudding, so I opted for the Sugar free Cheesecake pudding and it did the trick perfectly. Fantastic recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I made this for my sons 4th of July BBQ and it was a HUGE hit!

    Whenever I ask "what can I bring?" to a party or BBQ, I am TOLD to bring this desert. I'm also making this tonight just because my son and daughter in law love it so much.

    The store I was at didn't have white chocolate pudding, so I am going to try it with vanilla.

  165. any suggestions on what to do with the leftover condensed milk?

    ReplyDelete
  166. I made this yesterday. I love it. I make my banana puddings with the same filling just use bananas and cookies instead so I knew it would be good. I couldn't find the angel food cake at the store I was at so I just bought the cake mix and made the cake. you only have to add water to the cake mix. Also, I used all strawberries because I'm not a big fan of blueberries. One cup serving is very fulfilling and plenty. Can't believe it's so guiltless.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I just made this tonight, I tasted it in July at an office party and was directed to this website for the recipe. Unfortunately mine didn't turn out well. It was "soupy", after I spooned out one portion the remainder caved in. It didn't taste as fluffy as when I had it the first time. I followed the recipe accurately and wonder if you have any suggestions on what I may have done wrong? Luckily this was my practice trifle and I need to bring one to an event next week on 10/30/12. HELP please.

    1. Maybe you can use silken tofu in place of the pudding and use vegan whipped topping.

  171. This was a hit at the 4th of July party I went to yesterday. I did take the first bite bc 5 min later it was all gone. If I had made 2 they both would of been gone fast!!! Thanks Gina, you are my go to site and I recommend your site to all my patients looking for healthier recipes.

  172. Thank YOU! I made this for 4th of July and there wasn't anything left! I had to substitute cheesecake pudding because I couldn't find white chocolate pudding in my area. But it was AMAZING anyway. And so pretty!!! Thank YOU again.

  173. Was able to pick up a great trifle dish at Target which made the presentation of this dish epic. A couple of items, I definitely agree using a big ziploc with a corner cut out helps with the cream. Pay attention to the placement of the ingredients, by placing them against the bowl so they can be seen. The trifle was a hit at the July 4th party, although I did get to bring some home, there were several desserts available,(including your red/white/blue skewers!) none were finished. Definitely keep refrigerator until time to serve. Excellent dessert to feed a hungry group of folks. Thanks again Gina!

  174. I don't have a trifle bowl, so I found some cool margarita glasses and made individual servings of it. I made 5 very full glasses (skipping one level of fruit as it wouldn't have fit), and I had some extra of the pudding/cool whip mixture, so I am guessing I could have made 7 or 8 maybe if I'd used it all. So good, and my husband ate one the next day and said it was just as good!
