  • Trifle Dish


  • 1 9x13 Inch Chocolate Cake (recipe linked above)
  • 2 3.9 Oz Instant Chocolate Pudding Mixes
  • 4 Cups Classic Coconut Milk
  • 2 9 Oz Containers Dairy-Free Whipped Cream (CocoWhip)
  • 1 Package Oreos


  • If not done already, make the chocolate cake and let cool. Crumble up with hands into medium sized pieces.
  • Pour coconut milk into a large bowl and whisk in pudding mix until combined. Put siran wrap on top of the pudding so a skin doesn't form and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Pour all the oreos into a large gallon ziploc bag and crush with a large spoon.
  • Take out trifle dish. Spread half of the cake crumbles onto the bottom of the dish. Spread half the pudding over the cake crumbles. Sprinkle half the crushed oreos on top of the pudding. Then spread 1 container of whipped cream on top of the oreos.
  • Repeat the previous step one more time: cake, pudding, oreos, and whipped cream. Save a few bits of oreos and sprinkle on top of the final whipped cream layer. Store in the fridge.
