- 1 1/2 cups milk OR your favorite dairy-free milk substitute
- 1 pint whipped cream

- Cook's Note - Use ready made brownies, pudding and whipped cream for convenience. Be sure to read labels when choosing ready made products for this recipe.
Prepare your favorite gluten-free brownie recipe, mix or use ready made gluten-free brownies. If using homemade brownies allow time to cool before assembling individual trifles. You will need 4-6 brownies when assembling this recipe. The amount depends on the size of the glasses or trifle bowl used.
In a medium saucepan combine pudding mix and milk or dairy-free substitute. Disregard directions on pudding package to use 2 cups of milk - we are making a thicker, richer pudding. Whisk ingredients and cook over medium heat until pudding bubbles and thickens. Set aside to cool.
In a medium mixing bowl, whip cream with sugar and vanilla until peaks form.
Use 4 glasses (8 to 12-ounce glasses depending on your preferred serving size) for individual servings OR one large trifle bowl (clear glass bowl). Assemble trifles by placing 1/2 of one crumbled brownie in bottom of each glass. Spoon pudding over brownies - about 1/4 cup pudding over each brownie layer. Top pudding with a layer of whipped cream. Repeat layers in each glass.
Chill prepared trifle until ready to serve. Garnish with berries (optional.)
