Simple Berry Cheesecake Trifle Recipe {No Cook Summer FAVORITE!}

trifle ingredients

Last year the girls and I made a Berry Cheesecake Trifle, spur of the moment because we had some angle food cake and we knew it wasn’t going to go very far with all of us!

We were going to try and stretch it, to feed everyone!

It was too hot to turn the oven on, we had berries and some pudding so we whipped this yummy dessert up.

I had my oldest wash, hull and slice the strawberries.

The little ones tore up the angel food cake into bite size pieces and my middle daughter made 2 packages of cheesecake pudding.

We started with the angel food cake covering the bottom of a glass dish. Then we layered strawberries and blueberries to cover. Next was a layer of pudding and on top of that a layer of cool whip.

We kept layering until we were out of space!

To fill up a glass bowl like this one (Walmart for $8.99) we used 2 packages of strawberries, 2 boxes blueberries, 2 pkg. pudding, 1 carton cool whip 8oz. and 1 angel food cake.

Such a great dish to bring to a bbq or for the 4th of July!

    Tiffany, I don’t know if you like picking blueberries but there is a blueberry farm in Conroe. I live in Beaumont (I have a blueberry farm near my house) but I have a friend who lives in the Woodlands. The farm is called Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm. They have a fb page. Might be something fun to take the kids to do. My 5 y/o loves to go pick blueberries. You can’t beat FRESH blueberries.

      We always go to Pioneer blueberry farm. Moorehead is too commercial for me. I LOVE blueberries!

    I had to make dessert for 25 people last Friday nite….I made this but, I did it in individual servings using 9 oz. clear cups….used freezer strawberry jam, that didn’t set. Took a little more time using the cups, but looked just as pretty and everyone just grabbed one with a spoon and ate away… left overs :(

    Hi! I love your recipes! I was wondering if you would mind my sharing some of them on the wall of my fb page. I would share the link to your blog and give you credit also for the pictures. I have almost 20k fans…so this should maybe help you get more exposure??? thanks so much!

    I know this is an old post but I just found it on Pinterest. I’ve been making fruit trifle since I was in high school, and it is one of my favorites.
    The way I learned was to mix a large package of vanilla pudding per one lemon yogurt (I always used Yoplait), and to use pound cake (or homemade lemon torte) which is dense and gives it such a nice bite. I use blueberries and strawberries, with the strawberries pressed up against the glass to make a nice design. I skip the cool whip. I will definitely sub cheesecake pudding next time and see how it goes over…maybe add a little lemon zest to :)))
