New Zealand trifle. - SandyC - 09-08-2012

I posted this in my forum thinking a few might like to try it, and thought christmas is looming ever closer, so here you go, try and I hope you enjoy..


1pkt strawberry flavoured jelly

1 pkt lime jelly

6 cups milk

6 tbsp custard powder

6 tbsp sugar

600ml cream, whipped

1 punnet strawberries

1 tin (825g) sliced peaches

1 tin (425g) mango slices

1 swiss roll

1/2 cup or sherry or orange juice


Prepare jelly as per packet instructions and refrigerate.

Prepare custard as per instructions using the custard powder, sugar and milk. Refrigerate.

Whip cream and refrigerate.

When ready to assemble, drain the peaches and mango.

Slice the swiss roll and lay in the bottom of the bowl. Sprinkle over the sherry or orange juice.

Lay ingredients in the following order. Green jelly, half of the custard, peaches, red jelly, custard, mango and then cream.

Smooth the cream out and decorate the top with the hulled and halved strawberries.


This recipe takes a bit of preparation but it it's worth it in the end.

You can make this the day before you need to serve it. I think it's actually better 24 hours later.

You can exchange the sherry for orange juice for a child-friendly option.

Sounds lovely... but its way too early for me to think about Christmas!

(and what is a punnet? :unsure: )

I was getting in early for you all with it, lol.. I did the christmas cake as well thinking at least it'd give time for folk to get the ingredients if they wanted to make either or both..

A punnet?.. here it's usually a smallish plastic container that will hold around a kilo, or 2 pounds of things like strawberry's or other smallish berries..
