Tuesdays At The Table - Berry Trifle

HAPPY TUESDAY! You all come back week after week, and I just love you all for it. :-) I bet Andrea misses us and would be impressed that so many people are participating!


I'll be honest; I haven't tried to make this recipe myself. I first tasted it (and got the recipe) last week. From what I hear, it comes from Better Homes and Gardens. It is very delicious...and EASY! :-)

Berry Trifle

6 cups strawberries, quartered
2 cups blueberries (though I think it was mentioned that raspberries work too)
1 container (6 oz) vanilla yogurt
1 package of vanilla pudding (4 serving size)
1 container (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
1 loaf (10-12 oz) of pound cake, cubed
2 cups of milk

Prepare pudding using box directions (use the milk above) and set aside. Beat cream cheese and yogurt together until smooth; add in pudding.

To assemble the trifle, layer one-third of the cake cubes, one-third of the pudding mixture, and one-third of the strawberries and blueberries. Repeat layers twice. Cover and chill 4 to 24 hours.

This comes with a very yummy berry sauce too: In a blender combine 2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed) strawberries, 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 tablespoon raspberry liqueur/rum/orange juice. Cover and blend until smooth. If desired, press sauce through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds. Cover and chill until serving time or up to 24 hours. Makes 1 cup

Please link up or comment with your recipe(s) of the week!
