Strawberry Banana Trifle

It is Strawberry Season! This is great dessert to serve at a dinner party. You can also make in individual serving dishes, make sure they are glass so the layers show though. Make a beautiful presentation.

Strawberry Banana Trifle

Serves 4 to 6

1 (3-oz) pkg. Strawberry Jell-O ¾ Boiling water ½ Cold Water ¼ Cup Orange Juice Ice Cubes 1 cup sliced Fresh Strawberries 1 large Banana, sliced 2 cups cubes of Angel Food or Pound Cake cut (1 inch cubes) 1 ½ cup Cold Milk 1 (4 serving size) Package Vanilla Instant Pudding 2 Cups Cool Whip thawed, divided Extra Fresh Strawberries for garnish

Completely dissolve gelatin in boiling water. In a 2 Cup measuring cup, combine cold water, orange juice and ice cubes to make a total of 1 ¼ cups. Add to the hot gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Stir in strawberries and bananas. Place cake cubes in large glass serving bowl, spoon gelatin mixture over cake in bowl. Chill 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile pour cold milk into mixing bowl. Add pudding mix. With electric mixer at low speed, beat until well blended, 1 to 2 minutes. Let stand a few minutes to thicken. Fold 1 cup cool whip into pudding. Spoon over gelatin in bowl, spread to smooth out. Garnish with additional whipped topping and strawberry slices or chocolate curls’. Serves 4-6.

Try other flavors of cake, how about Black Forest. Use chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, cherry Jell-O and canned cherry pie filling.

· How about Hawaiian Trifle. Use Angel Food Cake and crushed pineapple, mandarin oranges, bananas, Lemon Jell-O, and coconut pudding with toasted coconut sprinkled on top.
