Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 6


  • 2 boxes (3.4 ounces each) instant cheesecake pudding
  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping - thawed, divided
  • 1 large (16 ounces) pound cake - cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 cups sliced fresh sliced strawberries - saving a few whole berries for garnish
  • 2 to 3 tbsp sugar
  • Sprig of fresh mint - optional


  • Toss together sliced strawberries with a few tablespoons of sugar and let sit for at least a half hour.
  • In a large bowl beat together milk and pudding mixes until they start to thicken.
  • Fold in the lemon zest and half of the whipped topping.
  • In a trifle bowl or pretty clear glass bowl, layer a third of the cake cubes, a third of the strawberries, and a third of the pudding mixture.
  • Repeat layers twice ending with the pudding mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate.
  • Right before serving, spoon a “cloud” of the remaining whipped topping on top.
  • Decorate the top with a few fresh whole or sliced strawberries and a mint sprig, if you want.


You can also make mini individual desserts by layering the ingredients in clean canning jars, clear glasses, parfait dishes, martini or wine glasses.

    i use the plastic ones you can buy quite inexpensively…i think 25 in a “pkg” That way people can take them home with them or i can deliver them to whoever needs a “hug” and not be concerned about getting the containers back! Everyone loves the various mini trifles i have made and given out!
