Peach Trifle...for Joe's B-Day




My hubby Joe, just loves trifles.  We usually make this with strawberries, because it tasted the best, but we made it Carlee friendly.  She didn't even eat some anyway, so next time it's back to strawberry!! 

I used mostly sugar free products in this trifle.  I don't really recommend it though!  Everything was too soft and runny.  It's best to use real stuff for best results.

In a trifle bowl, layer cake of your choice.  Here I used a cake mix with one can of diet soda, so that it would be egg-less and less calories for Joe and I.  the best cake to use for this is a pound cake or angle food cake.  Cut it into cubes and layer some on the bottom of the bowl.

Next you can add jam if you would like, but I didn't.  Then you layer some almost set up jello.  I used peach jello.  Use any flavor you wish!

Add your fruit on top of the jello.  Any fruit will do, but strawberries and bananas are scrumptious!!

On top of the fruit, you will add some pudding.  I just used vanilla here.

Top the pudding off with a layer of whipped cream.  I used the fat free Cool Whip, but...it's better with real whipping cream!!!  Mmmmm!

You then add one more layer of each ingredient and top with a fruit design or just whipped cream.  I sprinkled the top with a little nutmeg.  We usually put slivered almonds on top, but some people around here don't like nuts!  Sheesh!!  We did add them to our own serving though.  Anyway, I hope you try it!  Enjoy!!

It was all fat free and sugar free!! Can you do that? I do know what you mean though. I try not to do any sweets because it will make me crave them again.

WOW!! I didn't know trifle can be all fat free and sugar free! It's interesting to know that diet can soda and work with a cake mix. I love the idea of putting in the jello too! Looks really delicious too!
