The first long weekend of the summer is here. School is getting out. The days are getting longer and it is time to enjoy it all with family & friends. Trust me this berry trifle is a perfect way to enjoy it all!
Walking through the produce section of my local grocery stores and farmers markets I am overwhelmed with all the beautiful berries. With the long Holiday weekend here I want to highlight them in this amazing triple berry trifle.
Even better it is red, white and blue making it perfect for Memorial Day (& the 4th of July too). Ok really it is perfect for any summer party you have coming and it is so pretty!!
Now I know the idea of a trifle might sounds somewhat intimidating to some of you, but don’t be it is really simple. Not only is it simple but it is also beautiful making it a perfect dessert.
Another great thing about trifles is you can put almost anything in them. There is just something so yummy about the layers of cake, fruit and cream making it a treat everyone will love.
Simple and so good
For this trifle I kept it simple. I started with store bought pound cake (shhhh don’t tell anyone). Next came the delicious vanilla whipped pudding cream that really made this something to remember. Lastly come the berries and they really do make this trifle sparkle and shine.
Change it up a bit
Do you love chocolate? If so, you could change it all up and make it with a chocolate cream and just strawberries for a chocolate covered strawberry trifle. Oe you for a lemon berry trifle add in lemon juice & zest to the cream and voila you have a lemon berry trifle…the possibilities are really endless (just don’t add meat in it, remember from the Friends episode) ok sorry, moving on, I promise.
You got this
Perfect for a party
Another fun way to serve this would be in mason jars or bowls for individual servings. This would be perfect for parties, or for a fun weekend BBQ…kids and adults both will love it! You could also make a variety of the trifles if making individual ones…making something a little special for everyone.
Whether you are having a big get together this weekend or are planning something for later this summer (like the 4th of July) this would be a perfect treat for everyone to enjoy.
PS…remember to say thank you this weekend to those who have served or are serving. Print out these cards for a quick way to say Thank YOU!!
