3-Ingredient Trifles

3-Ingredient Trifles

Chocolate trifle side view

I really like ‘options’….lots of options~even when I cook and bake. I like to mix and match and not be tethered to doing things a certain way….I am a REBEL {with NO cause whatsoever~I just like to rebel!}. This trifle recipe fits the bill to a “T”. You can customize it to your preferences. I am making this for St. Patrick’s Day {hence the green pistachio pudding} but being that my oldest son is allergic to nuts, I am also making a a fat free chocolate pudding version for him and me ~ he doesn’t need the fat free but I do. While this is NOT a low-cal recipe little tweaks here and there can help make it a little bit of a healthier option. Three layer trifle in pretty glass cup
