Red, White & Blue Trifle
Beautiful, delicious and a cinch to make. The perfect light dessert for any summer celebration. This Red, White & Blue Trifle recipe makes enough to fill an 8" trifle bowl.
In the bottom of your bowl, put a thin layer of whip cream.
On top of whip cream, layer strawberries, then cake pieces, a layer of whip cream and then blueberries.
Repeat until bowl is full.
Refrigerate until needed.
*In our home, we have lactose issues, 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.
This Red, White and Blue Trifle recipe is gluten free, dairy free (with substitutions).
