Delicious layers of strawberries, bananas, vanilla pudding and vanilla wafers in this Banberry Trifle.

I love layered desserts in a clear serving vessel. I used individual cups to make this dessert, but you could easily make this in one large glass bowl and serve it to the masses.

How to Make Banberry Trifle

Trifle is just a fancy way of saying layered dessert. You can layer fruits, chunks of cake, puddings, brownie chunks, etc… it’s definitely a dessert you can get creative with.

Creating a Trifle with Vanilla Wafers

For the bottom of this banberry trifle I put a layer of crushed vanilla wafers.

Vanilla pudding layer

Then I scooped on a layer of vanilla pudding.

Cut up Banana Pieces

Next I cut up banana pieces and put them on top of the vanilla pudding.

Strawberry Layer

Adding some strawberries that I had cooked down with a little bit of sugar goes on top.

Whipped Topping

Then the final layer is some whipped topping. Then just repeat!

Another fun idea would be to create a trifle bar and let your guests create their own trifles.
