But this last recipe? YUM. I had to share a dessert. One that’s summery and easy. Tropical Trifles!

Tropical Trifle - layers of angel food cake, strawberries, pineapple, coconut, cream of coconut & topped with whipped cream! So tasty!

These individual desserts remind me of Hawaii. I just got back on Saturday from Kona and had the time of my life!! It was just my husband and I, no kids = bliss!

While I was there, I had this pineapple spongy cake with coconut that was to die for. I wanted to recreated it but in order to make it a little less caloric, I decided to make it into a trifle.

I used pre-bought angel food cake and added layers of strawberries and pineapple, with a little bit of coconut and cream of coconut, for good measure. If you haven’t ever bought cream of coconut before, you can find it in the liquor aisle at your supermarket. It’s used a lot in pina coladas and other desserts.

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: about 5
Ingredients
  • ½ angel food cake, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • ½ cup flaked coconut
  • cream of coconut (found in the liquor department at your store - NOT coconut milk!)
  • ½ (8-oz) container Lite Cool Whip
  • 1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
  • Maraschino cherries, for topping
Instructions
  1. In your serving dishes, layer some of the cubes of angel food cake, then some strawberries.
  2. Sprinkle with coconut then drizzle with some cream of coconut. Now add a dollop of Cool Whip. Repeat the layers but use pineapple instead of the strawberries. End with Cool Whip and then top with a Maraschino cherry!
  3. Repeat in all the dishes. This will make approximately five individual servings, depending on how big your glasses are. Can double or triple if making a large amount!
  4. (Measurements are approximate - add more or less as needed!)
