Main Ingredients Needed
Exact measurements are listed below in the recipe card. Make sure you scroll down to print and save the recipe for later!
The recipe ingredients are for ONE pint-sized mason jar. Increase the ingredients depending on how many people you are serving.
- One slice of angel food cake, cut into bite-size pieces
- ½ cup strawberries, chopped
- ¼ cup blueberries
- 3 tablespoons lite whipped topping
Step 1: Angel Food Cake
- You could make your angel food cake, but it's so much easier to purchase one at the grocery store.
- Break apart or slice the cake into chunks being careful not to make them too big so they don't fit in the mason jar.
Step 2: Layer the Cake and Berries
- Add the angel food cake pieces to the bottom of each mason jar followed by the berries and then whipped topping.
Tips for Preparing Berry Trifle Recipes
- This recipe takes a shortcut by using pre-made angel food cake, but you can definitely make it homemade if you prefer.
- Each jar has 5 Weight Watchers points if fat free whipped topping is used.
- A good rule of thumb is to make one jar per person but the "Italian" in me always makes enough for leftovers. So I would make two jars per guest.
- Wash your berries a few hours before putting the jars together.
- Make sure the berries are completely dry before adding the whipped topping so there's no chance of the berries bleeding into the white of the whipped topping.
- I used pint size mason jars.
How to Store and Serve Mason Jar Desserts
- Serve immediately after you've finished adding all the ingredients to the mason jars or store in the refrigerator to serve later in the day.
- If you plan on serving the berry trifle later in the day, cover them with the mason jar lids and rings.
- To serve the berry trifles, place the jars on a cute tray on the dessert buffet table for your guests to help themselves to. Don't forget to tie a cute ribbon around the top of each mason jar.
- It's fun to have your guests open the mason jar and start enjoying the delicious treat!
- Have an empty bowl nearby for the guests to place the lids and rings in after they've opened up the desserts.
- Berry Trifle served in mason jars will store in the refrigerator for up to one day as they are best enjoyed the same day as you prepare them.
You can make a cute design with the last layer of berries if you want or have the whipped cream be the last layer. It's really up to you. Remember, each jar has 5 Weight Watchers points if fat free whipped topping is used.
