Now onto the trifle recipe!

Here's what I used . . . for the complete tutorial visit my Fresh Berry Trifle recipe.  It's got all the info.  This time I could not find fresh berries at my nearby market.  So I went with frozen berries this time.  I let them thaw and then used them like normal.  They were a little squishy, but still really good.  I also used the most white-looking pudding I could find (in this case cheesecake flavor of Jell-O brand), so that I could use food coloring and turn it pink.  

Layer it all pretty in a trifle dish {like this one} and it will be a feast for the eyes as well as the tummy.

And so you ask, how did I hide my trifle in the fridge and yet still have a nice big scoop of it out on a plate to take this pretty picture?  Well, a blogger has to do her duty and try everything she posts.  So I sacrificed and kept a nice big scoop of it out for me to try.  And yes . . . it is refreshing, sweet, and just pure yumminess.

Happy Valentine's Day!  How will you be celebrating?

Easy Valentine Trifle Recipe

4 cups cheesecake flavor pudding (instant works fine, also vanilla flavor is okay) -- color pink with food coloring or use strawberry flavor
3-4 cups whipped cream (fresh is best!)
2-3 cups of cake cubes (about a 9x13 size cake)
1 cup raspberries
2 cups strawberries (sliced)
Optional: you can add more berries if you like--the more the better!

Wash and pat the berries dry.  Let them air dry while you prep the rest.  Cut your cake into cubes, whip your cream, and make your pudding.  Then start layering in a medium size bowl or trifle dish.  Start with the pudding, then add cake cubes so they can soak in the pudding.  Add the fruit and whip cream.  To make it look pretty, stick the outer-edge row of to the glass in a nice line, alternating with strawberries, cake, raspberries etc.  Continue layering until all the ingredients are gone, finishing with whip cream on top.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Enjoy!

  1. We both had the same idea today for valentines day.. popping over from Saturday Dishes, I too linked up a trifle, no.30. I love trifle and there's so many variations, I for sure will try this one out. Looks delicious.
