These past few weekends have really helped me get a few new recipes in. I think I like to tell you all that we have company over when I post these because I don’t want you to think I eat this way all the time. Good news is, these triple berry trifles are at least a semi-healthy dessert. It’s light and refreshing and the operative word lately…easy. Great to have ready for the 4th of July too!
So easy. Oh and it has a little condensed milk topping. It’s totally optional, but I figured, why not? Who doesn’t love sweetened condensed milk? Side note, I had to google the difference between a Trifle and Parfait. Just in case you were wondering too, a trifle has cake in it and a parfait does not. Learn something new every day…huh? I probably typed parfait about a thousand times when trying to describe this treat.
Enjoy! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Sorry I’ve been lagging on the Friday Faves, I’ll get some up next week for you :-).

I just made a rhubarb and strawberry trifle for Easter–the individual ones would have been so much easier to serve! Next time, I make your version. :o)

I remember having trifle made by an English friend – she drenched it in liquor (not sure what kind) and wow, it was good. with fresh fruit, a little cake, and some topping, you just can’t miss.

These look amazing! I love the combination of vanilla pudding and cream. That’s definitely something I have to try.

Thanks! My grandma used to mix pudding mix with cool whip and it made for a great fruit dip. I thought the combination in a trifle would go wonderfully!
