Angel Food Cake Trifle

This is another delicious recipe from my friend Juli! She gave it to me a few years ago and I've used it several times for parties, holidays, etc. It serves a lot of people and it is super easy to put together. It's great in the summer because if you buy the angel food cake (which I always do) there is no baking involved. The original recipe called for just strawberries but I kind of combined it with another recipe I had and added some blueberries, bananas, and kiwis. My 3 year old helped me put this one together and she was super excited to tell everyone how fancy it was! Give it a try!

Juli's Angel Food Cake Trifle
1 large box vanilla pudding (prepared according to package directions)
1 angel food cake (cut into 1 inch cubes)
1 regular sized box raspberry jello
1 cup boiling water
1/2 carton strawberries sliced
2 kiwis chopped
1 banana sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
2-3 cups whipped cream (I prefer to make my own but cool whip would work too)

Prepare vanilla pudding according to package directions and refrigerate until set. Meanwhile, chop up angel food cake and fruits. Place chopped cake in the bottom of trifle bowl. Combine raspberry jello with 1 cup boiling water. Allow to cool slightly and pour half over cake. Arrange fruits on top of cake (reserving a few pieces for garnish). Pour the other half of the jello mixture over the fruit. Cover with prepared pudding and top with whipped cream. Arrange a few pieces of fruit on top as desired. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to let jello chill. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
