Happy 4th of July - Red, White and Blueberry Trifle


I  wanted to take a moment to wish all my friends, family and readers celebrating American Independence Day a very happy 4th of July!

If you're looking for the perfect light and refreshing dessert to compliment your 4th of July BBQ, why not try a red white and blueberry trifle?  Using a clear bowl (for full effect) simply alternate layers of white cake (cut into bite-size squares), whipped cream, sliced strawberries and blueberries, and toasted almond slices, finishing with your own pretty design on top.  Chill until you're ready to serve this delish dish!

From my family to yours, I wish you a wonderful day filled with family, fun, friends and fantastic food.  B'Tayavon and Buon Appetito!

Naomi's Trifle

Ingredients:

  • white cake, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 large tub of cool whip (or full serving size of home-made whipped cream, you can use non-dairy as well)
  • 1 lb.  package of blueberries, rinsed
  • 1 lb. package of strawberries, rinsed and quartered
  • 1 package of sliced almonds, toasted 


Method:
Bake your white cake, and allow to cool before cutting into bite-size pieces.  (I like to make cupcakes and then cut them into eighths - less crumbs).  Using a clear bowl, layer the ingredients, starting with some whip cream at the bottom, covered by fruit, nuts and then white cake.  Continue layering until you reach the top of the bowl, finishing off with a layer of whipped cream, your own design with the berries and sliced almonds!  Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
