Have you ever wondered how to make a trifle? The holidays will be here soon and that means special desserts. I generally don’t eat dessert for the most part but with all of the entertaining around Thanksgiving and Christmas, I allow myself a few here and there. I try to keep the desserts I make lower in sugar since Marty is diabetic.  This Italian Christmas Trifle Recipe uses less sugar than normal because Monk Fruit in the Raw replaces part of the sugar. I really love the taste of Monkfruit in the Raw and I love knowing that it’s a healthier choice for Marty to enjoy. He cannot taste the difference at all and I feel so much better about serving it.

A trifle is an English dessert that is typically made with sponge cake, a thick custard, jelly and whipped cream. I’ve lightened up this trifle a bit to make it a healthier holiday dessert. Learning how to make a trifle is very simple but the final result will certainly impress your guests.

I created this Italian Christmas Trifle in individual glasses. If you have a trifle bowl, you can serve the trifle in that as well. It’s easier for me to fit individual glasses in my small refrigerator than a trifle bowl.

I found the original trifle recipe on the Monk Fruit in the Raw site and changed it up a bit to fit our preferences. You can substitute a gluten free cookie for the Biscoff Cookies if you’re gluten intolerant. Use whatever kind of fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand. Organic is best.
