Hawaiian Trifle with Edible Flowers

The amount of ingredients you use will depend on the size of bowl you will make your trifle in. I will include my measurements and you may adjust from there. Also, I cut a fresh pineapple, and made the whipped cream, but you can use ready products for this recipe. Add a little extra prep time if you decide to make your own pudding, and whipped cream.

  • 2-3 large bananas
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup macdamia nuts crushed into pieces
  • edible flowers this is decorative, use what you like


  • You will want to prepare all your ingredients first setting to the side. Then start adding the ingredients to your bowl to make the trifle.
  • 1. Make the vanilla pudding and place in refrigerator until needed. 2. Make the whipped cream and place in refrigerator until needed. 3. Cut up the pineapple, and bananas setting aside. 4. Place Macadamia nuts into a zip lock baggie, and pound them to break them into smaller pieces and set aside. 5. With your hands tear the angel food cake into pieces.
  • Get your bowl, and add a layer of the angel food cake to the bottom.
  • Layer heaping spoonfuls of pineapple over the angel food cake.
  • Add the pudding layer next so it covers the cake and pineapple.
  • This s a good time to start adding the flowers around the side to decorate. This is your design, so be as creative as you would like
  • Add the bananas covering most of the pudding, and smooth the whipped cream over the bananas.
  • Add the next layer starting again with the angel food cake, pineapple, vanilla pudding, bananas, and whipped cream. Also, keep adding the flowers inside the bowl working around the insides of the bowl.
  • When you're done layering, add the toasted coconut, and macadamia nut to the top, and a few flowers.


Don't feel you have to add all the ingredients into the trifle bowl, as it may not fit. If you do have extra make some small ones. You can also make in a freezable container too, and freeze them. :-)
