Fruit & Cream Trifle

Really easy and deliciously healthy (for the most part) We made it up, so sorry the measurements aren't exact.  Next time, I'll pay more attention to how much of each I put in each layer and such!

Fruit of choice (we used strawberries, kiwi, bananas, peaches, and mandarin oranges all sliced, about 1 1/2 cups each)
1 large pkg. vanilla pudding
1 container cool whip, thawed
1/2 pint whipping cream, whipped with 2 heaping teaspoons sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla
1 9 x 5 pound cake, cut in chunks

Slice up all the fruit, whichever you choose.  Make the pudding according to the package instructions, then fold in cool whip.  

Begin layering the trifle with pieces of pound cake first, top with a bit of each kind of fruit, then pour some of the pudding mixture to cover.  line slices of the fruit around the outside of the dish so it's aesthetically pleasing. :) Repeat process until all is used up.  Top with whipped cream and garnish as desired!

what is a trifle and how is that healthy? :)

Yummy! Sounds "delish!", as Rachael Ray would say. Perfect for the Pampered Chef bowl, yes?

Mish, a trifle is in a big bowl and you layer everything. it's healthy because of all the fruit, duh... that's why i said "for the most part".

Mom, you should use the word delish. :) but it is, and yes, perfect for the PC bowl.
