The kids return to school this week and we are all back into the full swing of things.  Busy, busy, busy!  It seems like the first week of school is always the toughest on them.  When they return home from a busy school day, you can tell they are mentally and physically exhausted and always hungry!  So, I make sure to have a yummy snack ready and waiting to hold them over until dinner.  However, with my own busy schedule, I have to make that snack a quick and easy recipe.


When I ran across the $1.00 off coupon, receive $1.00 off when you buy one container of Cool Whip and two boxes of Jello, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  And Since I had a container of fresh strawberries in the refrigerator, I decided on my Strawberries and Cream Trifle dish!

Now when it comes to snacks, a balanced, nutritious and wholesome snack is what I strive for.  Jello and Cool Whip makes it easy to accomplish this!  Not only is it better for you but it’s also super easy to prepare!

So, I headed out to our local Walmart to pick up all the ingredients for the trifle, with coupon in tow of course!  Walmart makes it super easy to find products you are looking for; they conveniently hang signs in each aisle.  I found the Jello right under the “Gelatin” sign and Cool Whip in the frozen food section under “Dessert & Toppings.”  I was in and out in no time and rushed home to prepare the Strawberries and Cream Trifle!



Strawberries & Cream Trifle Recipe
Angel Food Cake
1 box sugar-free vanilla instant Jello
1 container Cool Whip
2 cups milk
3 cups sliced strawberries
1.  Cut Angel Food cake into 1 inch cubes.
2.  Using an electric mixer, blend Jello, milk and cool whip.
3.  Make 3 layers in the trifle dish, starting with the Angel Food Cake, pudding/Cool Whip and top with the sliced strawberries.
4.  Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.



My kids absolutely love this dish!  In fact, I always make a bowl right away for my daughter to dig into.  I love the fact that is it not only nutritious but also a simple and delicious snack!
Let Cool Whip & Jello be part of your child’s back to school snack.  They will thank you for it and you will be thankful for the time it saves!
