  • About This Recipe

    “This trifle is much lighter than traditional trifles but equally as good. It uses yoghurt and fresh fruits providing a much healthier version. You can substitute the cream topping for a low fat version. The frozen ready whipped cream works quite well with this recipe too.”

  • 1packet topping mix or 1packetwhipping cream
  • 2 (6ounce) boxes non-fat strawberry yogurt

  • “Delightful! Strawberries in a cloud of cream and yogurt layered with cake. Using store bought cake makes this a quick and easy. I mademy own cake (white), used whipped cream and omitted the kiwi. A wonderful way to use fresh strawberries!”

  • “This was so easy, gorgeous, and low calorie!Everyone was SOOOO impressed.Thanks!”

  • “This is by far the best dessert I’ve ever eaten! So light, airy, delicious and, above all, easy to throw together! I’ll be making this recipe often. Will try it with raspberries & raspberry yogurt next time for a change.Thanks Char!!!!”

  • “This made a beautifuil and luscious dessert. I used purchased cake and real whipped cream. We got the best strawberries from a local strawberry farm which made this dessert come to life. I am so glad I discovered this recipe because I will be making it all summer long. Thanks.”

  • “This dessert was so lovely. I used purchased sponge cake because mine never turn out well and I don’t enjoy baking all that much. I did whip up some fresh cream and added a touch of sugar. I left off the kiwi because they didn’t look that good at our grocery store. The end result was a bowl full of heaven. The cream, cake, yogurt and juicy berries went together perfectly for a scrumptious, no overly sweet dessert. Thanks Char, for a wonderful summer dessert.”

  • “This is incredible.Strawberries have arrived at the local stores and I wanted to try this.It is delicious!I used a store bought cake.I also did not use kiwi, but will try that when it is in season.My kids love this, too!We will use this recipe a lot this summer!”
