Fourth of July: Easy Strawberry Lemonade Trifle Recipe

Fourth of July: Easy Strawberry Lemonade Trifle Recipe. Just in time for the Fourth of July, this Strawberry Lemonade Trifle Recipe is sure to be a hit!

My husband is not a big sweets guy.  He’s a sweet guy, but not big on the desserts.  He’s crazy. Well I made this Strawberry Lemonade Trifle a little while back and was pleasantly surprised by how much he loved it! So I made it again for Father’s Day.  Besides the awesome flavor combo, the best thing about this dessert is you don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up your house.  It could also be easily converted to a 4th of July dessert by tossing in a few blueberries.IMG_9454

Start  with these easy ingredients. I got them at Smiths

  1. Frozen Sugared Stawberries (24oz)
  2. Lemon Pie Filling (23oz)
  3. The big Cool Whip
  4. A loaf of Angel Food Cake

If your grocery store sells them a little smaller don’t worry I didn’t use all of it the first time. You can use the ring cake I just thought the loaf was easier to cut. And I’m all about simple.

If you have the time, defrost in the fridge the day before so everything is still cold but not frozen. If not, leave the Whip on the counter for a while and microwave the strawberries and break up with a fork. Don’t ever heat!IMG_9455Slice the loaf long ways into 3rds horizontally then vertically. The slice the short way into about 1” cubes. {Think bite-sized}

Now get 3 spoons {You only need one, but I don’t like mixing paintbrushes or ingredient spoons!}

Start with the cake…Then Cool Whip…

And lemon… {Don’t be afraid to load up on this, it’s pretty mild}.

Top it off with the strawberries. I used a slotted spoon to get more chunks and less juice.

As you layer, make sure to spoon your ingredients right up to the glass so you can see the delightful layers. Repeat 2 more times

You can serve it right away or you can make it the night before and stick it in the fridge.

This feeds about 12-14, but if you’re feeding a smaller group you can just do 2 layers. But still top off with the bull’s-eye, cause it’s cute.trifle pic
