Strawberry Banana Trifle

Strawberry Banana Trifle

This is a GREAT dessert for any spring or summer gathering.  A GIANT Strawberry Banana Trifle!! Its light and fluffy and tastes so refreshing when it gets really hot outside! Its feeds at least 10-12 people easily and probably more! Now I will be honest its not totally clean BUT I believe in moderation especially on holidays and on a scale of good better best concerning health this is a better option then most!!  BUT I will also give you a cleaner version that does not use the cake mix! So now you have TWO options to decide how you want to make your yummy cake

Its super simple to make but looks fancy. I got the dish from walmart I think for like ten bucks and it was worth every dime. 

Layer one CAKE:(Option 1)
1 white cake mix
2 light raspberry or strawberry yogurts of choice
4 eggs whites
1 &1/4 c water
Mix together and bake cake based in instructions on the box

Layer one CAKE : (Option 2)
2 Can white beans
2 strawberry flavor Greek yogurt
8 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla creme stevia
12 -14 packets stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract
Then add
2/3 c coconut flour 
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp baking powder

Bake at 350 for about 28-32 ish minutes. I check my cakes alot because based on elevation the bake time changes. Take a tooth pick and poke a hole in the middle if it comes out clean its done.

Pudding Layer:
One sugar free fat free white chocolate or vanilla pudding mix
2 cups milk( so I tried to use almond milk first and it didn't. Who know almond milk wouldn't make pudding but it doesn't ! So you can use skim milk)

Raspberry Fluff layer
1.5 cup of 1% cottage cheese
2 raspberry yogurts of choice 
8-10 drops of vanilla stevia or a packet or two stevia measure based on your taste buds
1/4-1/2 tsp xanthan gum (its a thickener so its optional but makes the fluff thicker )

Layer in cake , pudding , bananas and strawberries,  raspberry fluff, cake ,pudding , strawberries and bananas, raspberry fluff and  top with fruits - optional you can add a layer of fat free cool whip and then top with fruit.
