Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free flour and check custard powder, Greek-style yoghurt and cinnamon are gluten free.


  • You can use no-added-sugar jelly sachets instead of the cranberry juice and gelatin.
  • Add a tropical hint by using light cranberry and mango juice.
  • You could make jelly using reduced-sugar lime cordial or ginger beer cordial – use about 2 tablespoons of cordial with 1 3/4 cups of boiling water and 1 tablespoon gelatin.


  • Vary the fruit topping for your trifle using kiwifruit, pineapple and mango for a tropical twist.
