4th of July Dessert!
We interrupt the showing of the laundry room and laundry room giveaway, to share a 4th of July recipe!
I figured I’d better hurry since the 4th is quickly approaching!
You remember the Mint Julep June Jaunt I participated in a couple of weeks ago? Well while having a fab time with all my bloggy friends, I found that fantastic trifle dish at the Goodwill we went to for $5 bucks! I brought her home and bleached it good and decided to use it for this dessert!
4th of July Red, White and Blue Berry Trifle!
You’ll need one 10 oz Angel food cake…cubed.
3 cups of cold milk
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1 quart of strawberries
1 pint of blueberries
1 8 oz container of Cool Whip.
I mixed the 3 cups of milk in a bowl with the 2 boxes of pudding and whisked for a couple of minutes. Let it stand to thicken just a bit and then fold in the cool whip.
In the bottom of your trifle dish…or any clear dish, put down a third of your cubed angel food cake, top with a third of your pudding mixture and then a third of each fruit. Repeat two more times.
I topped mine off with another dollop of the pudding mix and some berries.
SO easy and pretty to boot!
See all those pretty layers?!
Hope you enjoy!
