This is a creamy, fruity, heavenly dessert. I've been told it's like super-charged strawberry shortcake!

  • Pour the cream into the chilled mixing bowl, and add white chocolate pudding mix, lemon yogurt, and about 1 tablespoon of coconut rum, if desired; beat until fluffy with an electric mixer set on Medium speed.

  • Spread a layer of pound cake cubes into the bottom of a glass 10x15-inch baking dish, and sprinkle the cubes with another tablespoon of coconut rum. Cover the pound cake with a layer of strawberries; sprinkle blueberries over the strawberries. Spread a thick layer of whipped cream over the berries. Repeat the layers several times, ending with a layer of strawberries sprinkled with blueberries and reserving about 1 cup of whipped cream; top the trifle with dollops of whipped cream to serve. Refrigerate leftovers.

I made this for 4th of July, and it was a HUGE hit! It was easy, served a large crowd, and had people begging for seconds! Looks like something you spent a lot of time and effort on, but was really quick, easy, and delicious! Read More

I didn t think the whipped cream was sweet enough. Maybe next time I will use two vanilla pudding mixes. It serves a lot so be sure you are having a crowd! Looks beautiful very festive! Read More

This was easy to make and looks beautiful. I didn't use the rum because I made it for children and adults. If I made it for just adults, I would add the rum...yum! I did have lots of left over pound cake and some strawberries. Read More

I have not sat down to take a bite but I have tasted all the components to this recipe. And all components are fantastic. I will say I have a trifle bowl that has a stand on the bottom (I hope that makes sense). Therefore it is not one big glass bowl. Because of this I do not think you will need 3 lbs of strawberries. 2lbs in my case would have been plenty. Same with the pound cake. One would have been enough (I made my own so I knew I would have leftovers). Also I did not use the rum. I think it would have added a really nice touch but I didn't have any and I am serving this to kids as well. Overall really nice. Read More

Use greek yogurt that is thicker and then just a light cream or even try 2% milk next time. Use angel food cake and you've got yourself a low cal dessert! (and use honey to sweeten the strawberries instead.) Read More

LOVE IT! Yes I only used 2 pounds of strawberries (two containers) and like 8 oz of blueberries and one and 3/4 of one 14 oz pound cakes. It all depends on the size of your dish! But the cream was perfect you can't have too much cream. (We used 4 TBs of rum. Sshh!) Read More

My 10 year old daughter and I have made this twice with rave reviews. Yesterday we served it on the beach to all our friends. We have used French Vanilla pudding with lemon yogurt but we want to try coconut pudding and add some coconut and pineapple. There are so many possibilities to this recipe. It also keeps well in the frig for a few days before serving Read More

This is delicious and a beautiful dessert for a friend who just became a US citizen! My trifle bowl must be a lot smaller than the one in the picture because I filled it up and had enough fruit cake and cream to make another smaller trifle. The next time I will buy a little less fruit and maybe just 1 pound cake. Read More

I never leave reviews but I just made this today for my son's 4th birthday party. I got rave reviews on it. It was all gone before I even got to have some fortunately I had leftovers when I made it. I did make a few minor changes to it. My family wasn't too up on the white chocolate pudding and lemon yogurt so I went with vanilla yogurt and lemon pudding. Gave it an amazing taste. I will DEFINATELY be making this again and my husband even asked me if our next party was tomorrow so we could have it again. Fabulous recipe!!! Read More

Kids loved it at our 4th of July event! Adults too! Definitely will make again. Use toothpicks on top so that you can cover the dessert without the mess getting on saran wrap. Read More
