Looking for the perfect dessert to enjoy this Summer? Well you are in for a treat with this delicious Tropical Trifle! Layered with angel food cake, creamy vanilla pudding, and the tangy but sweet flavors of tropical fruits, this dessert is the perfect choice for any Summer outing or inning, if you just want to enjoy it at home!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Prepared angel food cake (12 oz.)
½ Cup fresh orange juice
1 Dragon fruit
1 Cup milk
1 Package (5.1 oz.) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
First, you want to start out by cutting your angel food cake into 1-inch cubes. Once this is done place them in a bowl and pour orange juice over them. Gently mix the cubes to ensure they are all fully coated with juice.
Next, you’ll need to scoop and slice your fruits. To make this process super easy, use the Cooks Innovations Adjustable Fruit Scoop. With the Fruit Scoop you can easily scoop and slice the fruits in a matter of seconds! And the best part? You can adjust the size to the fruit so no more unnecessary multiple scooping tools needed!

Then, in another mixing bowl, whisk the milk and pudding mix until it is well blended. Once that is done, whisk in the sour cream and stir in the whipped topping and orange zest.
Now, the fun part! To assemble the trifle, start by placing one-third of the cake cubes into the bottom of a large glass serving bowl. Top that with one-third of sliced kiwi, mango, dragon fruit, and papaya. Then top that layer with one-third of the pudding mixture. Spread the mixture evenly and then repeat adding the layers two more times. Cover and refrigerate the trifle for 1-2 hours before serving and Voila! You have a deliciously refreshing and sweet dessert! Just try not to eat the whole bowl yourself (this recipe serves 10)!
