(serves 14, approx. 170 calories per serving)


one angel food cake (prepared from box instructions), cut into 1-inch cubes

2 pints strawberries, sliced

2 pints blueberries

For the cream filling:

6 tbsp fat-free sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups cold water

1 package sugar-free white chocolate instant pudding mix

12 oz fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed (fat free Cool Whip)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and water. Slowly whisk in the pudding mix. Let stand for 2 minutes or until the pudding is soft set; fold in the whipped topping.

Arrange half of the cake pieces in the bottom of a trifle dish. Sprinkle a layer of blueberries on top. Spread a little less than half of the cream mixture over the blueberries. Add a layer of diced strawberries on top.  Layer the remaining cake cubes on top of the strawberries, then add more blueberries and top with the remaining cream mixture.  Last, complete the SKINNY trifle with the remaining strawberries and blueberries, arranging them in a fancy pattern. Cover and refrigerate at least one 1 hour before serving.
