Angel Food Cake (average store brand) or bake your own
30 ounces Tropical Fruit Drained
30 ounces Fruit Cocktail Drained
30 ounces Crushed Pineapple drained
Cool Whip large size 16 oz
2 cups Fresh Strawberries
1 cup Walnuts or Pecans
Trifle Bowl or Deep Tupperware Bowl
Cherries and Bananas Optional
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
Cut Angel Food Cake into chunks and layer your trifle bowl starting with the cake. Next add your strawberries, cool whip, tropical fruit, fruit cocktail, and top with nuts. Continue variation until cool whip is on last and nuts on top. You may add cherries and bananas also to the dish if you prefer.
Macerate (pulverize) your strawberries with about a half a cup of sugar and refrigerate for about an hour. Begin your trifle with the angel food cake chunks on the bottom then add your strawberries. Top the strawberries with Cool Whip then add pineapple, fruit cocktail and tropical fruits.
Continue adding more Cool Whip. You can add nuts in between the layers if you like. Continue layering until the cool whip is last and the nuts on top. Other fruits like cherries or bananas or coconut can be added to the dish. The dish is best served next day and can be used with the light cool whip and light can fruit for those watching the calories.
