Summer is around the corner and with it comes barbecues, picnics and family brunches. After waiting for beautiful weather, I don’t always want to be in the kitchen while everyone else is outside. Pair this trifle with our bacon and blue cheese burger or cilantro turkey burger with potato salad and broccoli slaw for an amazing gluten free menu.

This trifle is not only delicious, but it can be put together in under ten minutes.

In a rush? Purchase the components and assemble the trifle right before your company arrives.

In honor of Memorial Day and Independence Day, I have filled our trifle with strawberries and blueberries. Fill yours with your favorite fruit combinations. Raspberry and peaches, mango and papaya, blackberry and apricots – the possibilities are endless.

Recipe Notes

*In our home, we have dairy allergies, so I always use a non dairy whip cream substitute. While preparing the individual trifles, I ran out of whip cream substitute and the only thing I had was lactose free ice cream. It was a delicious accident. I would not use ice cream for the large trifle, but If you are making individual trifles with ice cream, you will need to assemble them right before serving.
