Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package of instant French vanilla pudding
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 (8 oz.) container of Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 1 store-bought Angel food cake, (cubed)
  • 1 quart of strawberries, (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp orange liqueur (optional for Adult-version)
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of sour cream and your package of instant French vanilla pudding. Turn your mixer on low speed and allow your mixture to thicken.
  2. While the ingredients are coming together, carefully use a zester to remove the zest off of your orange. You will need one teaspoon of orange zest.
  3. Once your pudding mixture has thickened, add your orange zest and give it a whirl. * Add your orange liqueur if making an adult-version, here.
  4. Carefully fold in your whipped topping and place your bowl aside until you’re ready to assemble your trifle.
  5. Slice your one quart of strawberries.
  6. Then cube an entire store-bought angel food cake.
  7. Begin assembling your trifle by placing half of your angel food cake in the bottom of your trifle bowl.
  8. Arrange about half of your strawberries around the side of the bowl and over the cake.
  9. Top the strawberry layer with half of your pudding mixture.
  10. Repeat with the remaining angel food cake, almost all of the rest of the strawberries (leave a few for garnish), and the second half of the pudding mixture.
  11. Add your leftover strawberries and an orange slice to the top of your trifle.
  12. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least one hour before serving.
  13. Enjoy!
