Red, white and blue trifle is an easy dessert perfect for July 4th celebrations. Delicious layers of cake, fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, white chocolate jello and whipped cream.
Red, White, and Blue Trifle. What a pure delight! This is a wonderfully easy dessert and great for celebrating Independence Day, Labor Day or indeed ANY day!
This trifle is really easy to make, and it's loaded with lovely berries; strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
For this recipe, Cathy has used store-bought ingredients. However, if you wanted to make this all from scratch, you certainly can!
The options are below for the various recipes to make up the different layers from scratch, so you can make all or some of them from scratch or just buy everything ready-made! The choice is yours!
For the cake layers, we've used soft Angel Food Cake, which you can buy ready made, or of course, make your own angel food cake.
For the pudding layer, we've used a store-bought white chocolate jello pudding. Again, if you wanted to make your own jello pudding, you can use our Lovefoodies Vanilla pudding recipe or Strawberry pudding recipe. It's easy to make! You can simply add some white chocolate to the pudding mix!
And lastly, if you'd like to make your own whipped cream instead of using cool whip (I know some of you can't get cool whip where you live), we have a really delicious Fresh Lemon Whipped Cream recipe which would work really well with the fruits in this trifle.
The red, white, and blue colors are perfect to celebrate July 4th, and will look fabulous at your table!
You can also use this same recipe for an Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert, so feel free to swap the fruits for others, to suit your celebration.
