Satisfy your sweet tooth with this healthy dessert

By Janet Lee Staff writer

Do you ever crave a delicious desert but never get to find it on Hofstra’s campus? Some of Hofstra’s campus dining plans do not satisfy the cravings that we students get! Most of the time, the desert that we crave is either not on campus, or the dining areas end up being closed. So, why not make that certain desert you crave all on your own?

Here is a very simple desert you can make right in your dorm: A Berry Trifle

First, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 large frozen Sara Lee Pound Cake
  • 1 small frozen Sara Lee Pound Cake
  • 30 oz. of frozen sweetened strawberries
  • Pudding
  • Fresh berries
  • Whipped cream

Then, you will just need to layer it all together (i.e. mason jar, glass/plastic cup). Make sure that the pound cake is thawed before you start stacking your trifle. Once the pound cake is thawed, cut and lay it on the bottom of your container. Then, add a layer of pudding. Then, add a layer of berries on top of the pudding. Continue layering your container in this same order until the bowl is almost full.

Once the container is filled to the top, cover it with plastic wrap and set it in the refrigerator so it can chill overnight or for a few hours. Finally, before you dig into the berry trifle, garnish the top of the trifle with whipped cream and top it off with fresh berries!

This trifle is so easy to make, and it is also something that everyone will enjoy! You can even change the ingredients around and add fruits that you enjoy, and maybe even add some chocolate to your trifle! Take a break over the weekend or even during the middle of your week and test out different trifle recipes. Enjoy!
