Angel Food Dessert

I found this recipe awhile ago and was so excited when I found an angel food cake on the sale rack at the grocery store.  When I got home I realized not only was it fat free but sugar free.  I was a little skeptical, but it was great!! You could not even tell.  This dessert reminded me of a triffle.  It was light and delicious.  The great thing is you can use all fat-free, sugar free ingredients or the real thing and it won't change it.  Since I am trying to be good I used the lower calorie ingredients.
Angel Food Dessert
adapted from The Taste of Home
1 can (20 oz.) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
3-4 medium firm bananas, sliced
1 angel food cake, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 cups low fat milk
2 packages (1 oz. each) sugar free instant vanilla pudding
1 -8 oz. carton light whipped topping
Place cake cubes in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. 
Place the fruit over top of the cake.
In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft -set. Spread over the fruit. Carefully spread the whippped topping over the pudding.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
*My kids requested that next time I leave out the pineapple and possibly add blueberries instead. This was as they were scarfing it down.  My daughter asked if I would send it for her lunch the next day!!
