Description

My mom always makes this for the 4th of July, and this past year I made it. It was a huge hit! Very colorful and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces, weight (large Box) Instant Vanilla Pudding
  • 14 ounces, fluid Sweetened Condensed Milk (plus Some Regular Milk, As Required By Your Pudding Mix)
  • 12 ounces, weight Cool Whip, Thawed, Divided
  • 14 ounces, weight Fresh Strawberries, Cut
  • 12 ounces, weight Fresh Blueberries
  • 1 whole Angel Food Cake Torn Into Pieces (I Usually Just Buy One From The Bakery At My Grocery Store)

Preparation

Mix vanilla pudding according to box, but use the 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk for part of the milk it calls for. Then, use regular milk for the rest of what the box calls for. Mix according to box, or until rather thick. Then, fold in 8 ounces of thawed Cool Whip (but save the rest for topping).

Rinse the berries, and allow them to dry. Then, cut the strawberries into bite size pieces. (Sometimes I also add fresh peaches, this makes a great addition).

Get out a trifle bowl, or something that looks pretty (you could get away with a 13×9 pan if you had to). Layer everything 3 or so times. I usually start with a layer of angel food cake, and just tear it into pieces right into the bowl. Then, I put about 1/3 of the pudding mixture on top, followed by fruit. Do this a couple more times, and end with the rest of the Cool Whip. Finally, I put some more fruit on top to make it look pretty.

This was a big hit at my 4th of July BBQ! I substituted cookies and cream pudding for the vanilla and then added crushed berry oreos. Delicious!
