Serve this stunning dessert for the Fourth of July, a family reunion, or any time you desire a no-fuss dessert with lots of fruit appeal.

  • Ingredients
  • Method


1 package (1oz) sugar-free, fat-free vanilla pudding
2 cups skim milk
5 cups (8oz) angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup fat-free aerosol whipped topping, divided
3 half-pint containers raspberries
2 half-pint containers blueberries or blackberries, or one of each


  1. In a medium bowl, prepare the pudding with the skim milk according to package directions. Let stand 5 minutes, then using a rubber spatula, fold in ½ cup of the whipped topping just until blended.
  2. Arrange half the cake pieces in the bottom of a large glass bowl. Spread half the pudding over the top. Top with 1½ containers of raspberries and a container of blueberries or blackberries. Top with the remaining cake, then spread the pudding over the top (it won’t make a totally smooth layer). Arrange the remaining raspberries and blueberries and or blackberries over the pudding. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour before serving. The pudding will soak into the cake and soften it.
  3. When ready to serve, decorate with the remaining whipped topping, making 8 2-tbsp dollops. Serve in bowls.
