Easy Strawberry and Coconut Trifle! Oh my goodness this is a delicious recipe! The idea came about following our 30 Day Recipe Challenge we take part in each month with a group of talented bloggers.

This month's theme was to create a No-Bake Dessert. Of course, for those of you who know Lovefoodies, we LOVE our trifles, puddings, and cake. So it was no surprise when I thought up a no-bake dessert that would combine many of my favorite ingredients to give a very easy and tasty dessert that would be perfect for a weekday or weekend occasion.

This is also a great recipe to make for a party, potluck, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and indeed any holiday really! These days it is easy to get good quality strawberries all year round, but of course, for the maximum sweetness, summer is the best time to enjoy these delicious fruits.

The trifle is made up of a few simple layers, and when eaten together, your taste buds really do sing aloud with the freshness of all the flavors which perfectly compliment each other.

For this recipe, I have made the coconut pudding and strawberry sauce from scratch. It is easy enough to do and doesn't take much more time than if you were to buy the ready-made products, and of course, from scratch is always so much more pleasing.

The lady's fingers I have used are really lovely! Once they absorb the strawberry sauce and coconut pudding, the texture becomes very cake-like, just as in a trifle.

So please enjoy our lovely Easy Strawberry and Coconut Trifle recipe, and be sure to take a look at the end of the recipe for the contributions from our blogger friends for our 30 day No Bake Dessert Recipe Challenge. There are some real goodies there!

Instructions

Make sure you allow to completely cool!

2. Make the strawberry sauce by adding the strawberries to a blender with the powdered sugar. Taste the sauce as you add the sugar so you can add more or less to your preference.

3. In a shallow dish, add the Strawberry Sauce and dip each ladyfinger in the sauce completely, then remove and cut each finger into 3 pieces. Line the trifle bowl or glasses with the fingers.

Keep the remaining strawberry sauce as we will use it to drizzle in and on top of the trifle.

4. Slice the strawberries into bite-sized cubes. You can save some for the top for decoration too if you'd like to!

Then add a layer of strawberries on top of the fingers. Then a drizzle of strawberry sauce. Use a spoon and add a layer of coconut pudding, then another layer of strawberries, then another drizzle of strawberry sauce, then the remaining coconut pudding.

You might have to use a knife and poke the filling around a bit so the pudding reaches in between the cracks.

At this point, if you are making ahead, cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Once chilled, add the whipped cream layer below.

5. Whip the cream to stiff peaks. Pipe or spread the cream over the top as your final layer and drizzle some strawberry sauce and garnish with a few strawberries and shredded coconut if you wish. Chill until ready to serve.

Allow to chill for 4  hours so the pudding has time to soak into the lady's fingers.

Please enjoy! And there you have our Easy Strawberry and Coconut Trifle!
