Summer Berry Trifle

1 c. boiling water
1 pkg. (8 serving size) Strawberry JELL-O
Ice cubes
1/2 c. cold water
2 c. mixed berries
1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 pkg (4 serving size) Cheesecake or Vanilla Instant Pudding
1 1/4 c. cold milk, divided
1 tub (8 oz.) Strawberry Cool Whip
1 pkg. (12 oz.) pound cake, cubed


1. Stir boiling water into dry gelatin in large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to measure 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is complete melted. Let stand for about 15 minutes or until thickened. (Spoon drawn through gelatin leaves definite impression.) Stir in berries. I just chopped up some strawberries and raspberries and stuck them in.

2. Place cream cheese in large bowl, beat with wire whisk until creamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup of th milk, beating until well blended. Add remaining 1 cup of milk and dry pudding mix; beat 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Set aside. I didn't want to buy strawberry cool whip, so I just added a T. of raspberry jam and about 1/4 c. of lemon juice to make it tart.

3. Place about half of the cake cubes in bottom of large serving bowl, cover with half of the pudding mixture. Top with layers of the gelatin mixture, remaining cake cubes and remaining pudding mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

This was SOOO good and was courtesy of the site. Everyone thought it was yummy and it worked great in the little trifle dishes that I bought.

what pudding mix do you mix with milk, because you don't call for any pudding mix in your ingredients!
