Shannon's Strawberry Trifle

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Shannon Holmes

I came up with this recipe because I had a craving for a decadent dessert but was on a diet then spotted a tub of cream cheese that wasn't going to be eaten and came up with this delicious trifle. Don't tell them it's good for them, they will never know :) Try it with blueberries.

My dad loved this! I made it for Easter but did have a bit of a goof when making it. Didnt have the recipe with me when shopping and bought pudding to be cooked instead of instant. My pudding did not thicken so I added another box of cooked pudding. After chilling a few hours the pudding mixture did thicken a bit. Next time I made this I will buy one more angelfood cake to layer with.
