  • 1 whole medium pineapple peeled, cored, and chunked
  • 2 cups watermelon cut into smaller chunks
  • 1 pint blueberries washed and dried
  • 1 pint strawberries washed, dried, hulled
  • 2 whole peaches remove pit, cut into chunks
  • 16 ounces whipped topping


  • Add a layer of pineapple, watermelon, berries, and peaches to the bottom of your glass trifle bowl.
  • Add one half of the whipped topping. Use a baking spatula to spread the topping evenly over the fruit.
  • Repeat steps one and two.
  • Once you have your final layer of cream exposed, you can add a pattern of diced fruit. I started with strawberries, and worked my way around the circle to create a pattern.
  • To serve, use a large serving spoon and add a portion to each dish. This easily feeds a minimal of 10 people but upwards of 12-15 if you serve smaller portions.
