I prefer fresh blueberries peaches & raspberries in season but frozen work fine. Another twist to this recipe is fold one small package of dry jello powder with the cool whip before layering any flavor you like. I have used strawberry very yummy.
I prefer to mix vanilla pudding/custard with either cool whip or real whipped cream. I layer the angel food cake pieces then the pudding layer then the fruit. A trifle bowl makes the layers show up but you don't need one. This is better after it sits for awhile and is better chilled. I make it sometimes from homemade custard made from egg yolks from my backyard chickens use the egg whites to make homemade angel food cake and make whipped cream from scratch and strawberries from the garden. DELIGHTFUL.
I made this for mother's day and it was a huge hit! adults and kids alike were dying for seconds. I used strawberries blueberries blackberries rasberrys and kiwi's. i skipped out on the peaches cause i just didnt like the sound of peaches in a trifle. id never made angel food cake and was worried it was too chewy but the fruit and whipped topping canceled it out and it just melted in your mouth!:D I'll definitely be making this again for future family events. it was sweet enough for the kids to love but not too sweet for the parents and was the perfect "light" dessert for a BBQ
I often make a Kahlua and brownie trifle but the warm weather called for something lighter and this fit the bill nicely. As with all recipes it's fun to tweak them adding your own twist and this was no different. As others mentioned I used a sugar free Cheesecake pudding mix made per instructions and then folded in most of the whipped topping saving just a bit for dollops on the top. But I also took some mixed frozen berries and pureed them pouring some on top of each layer and drizzling on the top for a pretty finish. I think the berry sauce added a lot to the fresh fruit flavor. Thanks for a great base recipe - it was a big hit at a neighborhood BBQ.
