All American Trifle


I don’t know what I would do without other bloggers. I swear half of my outfit ideas and the majority of the food I make comes from the creativity of others, and I am thankful for it! Just as I was brainstorming for the 4th, this idea for a red, white and blue trifle popped into my inbox from Mix and Match Mama. Perfect for a hot summer day, this dessert is simple and sweet. And outside of chill time, the preparation is a snap. Great idea to whip up for any of your picnic plans this weekend!



Here’s the recipe that I found here from Mix and Match Mama:

1 large (5 oz) instant vanilla pudding
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1/2 cup water
1 large (12 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
1 (8 oz) container of Sour Cream
1 angel food cake, cut into big pieces
 About 2 cups of fresh strawberries, sliced
About one cup of blueberries

In a large bowl, combine pudding, milk and water with a whisk.  Refrigerate this mixture 5 minutes.
Remove from fridge and stir in Cool Whip and sour cream until smooth.
In a large trifle dish (or individual dishes), layer angel food cake across the bottom, add a layer of strawberry slices and a few blueberries over the cake then add 1/3 of your pudding mixture.  Repeat 3 times.
Finish off with a few more strawberries and blueberries on top to garnish.
Refrigerate at least 4 hours up to 2 days before serving.
