So this beautiful weather is making me crave summer foods (OK…I know it’s only in the 60’s, but that is warm after a LONG Michigan winter!) One of my favorite desserts/snacks in the spring/summer time is my strawberry trifle! It is so easy to make, (it literally takes about 10 minutes to prepare) and it ends up looking like you spent hours making it! I like to bring it to parties/get together’s, and it always gets rave reviews and is gone in minutes!
You can vary the recipe in so many ways by using different berries or pudding flavors. You could try adding your favorite combination of flavors, like blueberries with lemon pudding, or strawberries with cheesecake pudding (and you could even garnish with graham cracker crumbs!) I made a gingerbread/pumpkin version of this trifle for our Christmas party this year, and it was gone before any of the cookies or pies were even touched! (And little did everyone know, it was much healthier!) So try this recipe the next time you are entertaining, or just want a light creamy dessert!
