Pineapple Angel Food Cake Trifle

Happy Memorial Day! What a beautiful day we are expecting today! I finally got around to posting my dessert from Easter. This is one of my favorite desserts to make because (a) it's so darn pretty (b) tastes delicious (that's the important part) and (c) it's WW friendly!! If you don't have a trifle bowl, you can certainly make this dessert on a large platter.

20 oz can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1.5 oz (or so) package of fat free, sugar free vanilla pudding
1 container of fat free (or lite) Cool Whip
1 pre-packaged Angel Food Cake - if you're making your own, I think you would probably need one pan's worth for this recipe
Fresh strawberries

In a large bowl, mix the crushed pineapple (with all its juice) and the package of the dry pudding mix. Then add half of the container of Cool Whip to the mix.

To assemble the dessert, cut your angel food cake into three lengthwise portions. Start with a layer of the angel food cake. Then slather about one-third of the pineapple mixture on top and sprinkle with some fresh, cut strawberries. Repeat two more times, ending with strawberries on top.

Finish it off by topping it with the remaining half of the Cool Whip and some fresh strawberries.

WW points per serving (10 servings): 3 points


  1. Should I use instant pudding or regular?

  2. I made this for Easter and my family (who mostly do not eat desert) devoured it. It was delicious and easy to make, plus low in carbs an sugar. I used lady fingers in place of Angle Food Cake to lower the carbs.
