Gluten Free Trifle (Dairy Free)


  • Jelly Again any flavour you like!
  • Fruit of choice I used a punnet of fresh raspberries
  • Gluten Free Sponge Fingers I use Schär's Savoiardi Fingers which are amazing & dairy free!
  • Dairy Free Custard You can use Alpro Soya Custard or let me know if you want my recipe!
  • Dairy Free Cream for whipping Provamel Soya Cream whips well
  • Grated Dairy Free Chocolate I used Doisy & Dam's Maca, Vanilla & Cacao Nibs Dark Chocolate


  1. Make up your jelly as the packet instructs... for me that was placing my jelly in a jug, pouring hot water over it & then cold.
  2. Pour your jelly mixture into your trifle dish (as much as you like, I thought of my dish as having 4 layers so basically had a quarter of the dish per layer!)
  3. Drop some of your fruit into the jelly.
  4. Place your jelly is the fridge to set. (This can take varying times depending on your jelly, mine seemed to take ages!)
  5. Spread a little jam onto your gluten free sponge fingers and once the jelly is set place your sponges in a layer on top of the jelly.
  6. Pour over your cold dairy free custard (again, as much as you like... I LOVE CUSTARD so lots!)
  7. Whip your dairy free cream, this can be done using a hand whisk quite easily till it forms stiff peaks OR by using a Cream Whipper.. my favourite new gadget!
  8. Spoon, pipe or squirt your cream on top in whatever style you wish.
  9. Grate a little chocolate on top (I used Doisy & Dam's Organic Dark Chocolate)
  10. Serve up & enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If Dairy is not and issue for you then feel free to use custards & creams containing dairy.
Also if you have a Lactose Intolerance rather than being fully Dairy Free.. the Lactofree Cream from Arla whips up very well.
*** There are no measurements for the ingredients just because it really depends on what size you want to make your trifle, your instinct will be right!!! ***
