Tropicana Trifle

The perfect Kiwi Christmas treat!
Total Time 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 papaya
  • 500 g fruit of your choice (e.g. kiwifruit, banana, pineapple)
  • 1 Tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 Tbsp mint chopped
  • 500 ml cream
  • 400 g trifle sponge
  • 1-2 cups tropical soda (e.g. Sparkling Duet)
  • ¾ cups toasted mixed nuts (e.g. macadamias, sliced almonds, coconut)
  • Mint leaves

Instructions

  • Dice papaya and any other fruit 2cm (except banana, leave that to the last minute so it doesn't go brown) and add to a large bowl with icing sugar and first measure of mint. Stir and set aside to marinate.
  • Add cream to a large bowl and use electric beaters to whip into soft peaks, about 3 minutes.
  • Place sponge on a tray with a lip and pour over ½-1 cup of soda per sponge, enough to soak the sponge but not too much or it will go soggy.
  • Tear sponge into bite-sized pieces and place half the sponge into a layer in the bottom of a trifle dish or deep glass bowl, or use mini bowls for a single serve option.
  • Layer with half the marinated fruit and top with half the cream. Repeat with remaining sponge, fruit (save a little for topping) and cream. Top cream with some decorative pieces of fruit, toasted nuts and mint leaves.
