I can’t wait for Memorial Day and the official start of summer to get here. Even though Memorial Day seems to always be a little cold and frequently rainy here, we are still having a barbecue. Sometimes we just end up eating inside, but that is fine because we always have lots of food, and great company. This Red, White and Blue Trifle is the perfect dessert for our celebration. It comes together quickly with store bought ingredients, is delicious and is red, white and blue. What more could you want?
Pair this trifle with our bacon and blue cheese burger or cilantro turkey burger with potato salad and broccoli slaw for an amazing and delicious meal.
Of course, in the spirit of the day, I have filled our trifle with strawberries and blueberries. Create your own unique trifle by using your favorite fruit combinations. Raspberry and peaches, mango and papaya, as well as blackberry and apricots are all amazing combinations – the possibilities are endless.

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.
Cut cake into small bite pieces.
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 really a delicious accident. I would not use ice cream for the large trifle, but if you make individual trifles with ice cream, simply assemble them right before serving.
This Red, White and Blue Trifle recipe is gluten free, dairy free (with substitutions).
