If you are having a memorial Day or July 4th grill out this Easy Patriotic Trifle Recipe will be great to serve up. We will be having a small grill out on Monday and I was whipping up some ideas this past few weeks to have for our Memorial Day and July 4th get together. I really like quick and easy deserts so this Patriotic Trifle will be perfect.
Patriotic Trifle Recipe
Berries and pound cake are so light but full of flavor. When you layer them up, they make a great combination. My family really enjoyed the Strawberry Shortcake Mason Jar Recipe I shared with you last week. I am thinking this Patriotic Trifel with Strawberries and blueberries will be perfect. The colors are perfect for the upcoming holidays.
I have been on a blueberry kick this week since I scored such a good deal on Blueberries. I already made some yummy and Easy Blueberry Crisp. If you are shopping for Blueberries this week, hit up Aldi for a great deal.
Often I will make my own whipped topping. It’s always so light and yummy. If you are pressed for time and looking to keep on budget you could score some of the $1 each Cool Whip deals this week at Meijer, Kroger and Remke. You can use pound cake or even angel food cake in this Patriotic Trifle Recipe too!
1 lb Strawberries
6 oz Blueberries
8 oz Pound Cake
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Find a glass about the size of your trifle glass and cut 4 circles and insert in bottom of trifle glasses.

Whip cream and powdered sugar until peaks form.
Place a layer of strawberry slices on top of each.
Top strawberries with whipped cream and level it off.
