Red, White & Blue Berry Trifle

This luscious trifle tastes best if made the day before serving. Keep additional berries on hand for decoration. —Kaia McShane, Munster, Indiana

    Good recipe and I have been making various types of trifles for many years as my family is from England. Great thing about trifle is you can do so many things with it! I do have a few suggestions. I suggest using strawberries, sliced bananas, and thawed, undrained frozen blueberries. Why frozen? The juice from the thawed blueberries will absorb into the cake. Next suggestion is for Angel Food Cake instead of pound cake. It is fat free and will absorb the juices better. I also use vanilla pudding and don't add sour cream or condensed, just 2% per box directions. I layer with cake pieces, then blueberries (with juice), then pudding, then strawberries and bananas, then whipped cream then repeat. I have also done sugar-free pudding and sugar-free whipped cream for a super diet friendly dessert and know one even new!

    I liked this recipe, but next time I will use vanilla or another pudding flavor. .

    The perfect summer recipe! I put it in a large glass bowl. Used French vanilla pudding instead of lemon. Delicious!

    I made it with strawberries and blueberries. Turned out really well. It took some maneuvering to get everything to fit in the springform pan, but overall it was pretty easy to make.And everyone loved it. Even the folks who don't like dessert loved it.

    I recently made this for a party. I put it in individual jars & was thrilled when quest were able to take left over jars home. It was pretty easy to put together!
