Lemon Blueberry Trifle

Lemon and blueberries are one of my favorite combinations of all time!

Admittedly, I love lemon with just about anything, but the marriage with blueberries is positively magical. Especially in the summer when those little berries are ripe and bursting with flavor!

This dessert is especially great for summer since there is no cooking required. No-bake desserts are a lifesaver in the summer. It’s so humid where I live, the poor air conditioner can barely keep up!

A nice cool dessert after dinner is the perfect treat for cooling down. Plus, someone is always having a cookout on the weekend where you need a dish to pass. This trifle is a guaranteed favorite.

You know you’re on to something good when everyone is standing around the table eating it with spoons straight from the bowl… But if lemon is not your thing, be sure to check out my Oreo Cake pudding dessert. It’s always a huge hit!

I use store-bought angel food cake for the cake layer, but buttery pound cake would be equally delicious. The custardy lemon layer is made with pudding, cream cheese and whipped topping so it’s the perfect balance of light and rich!

I am totally obsessed with my trifle bowl! I wanted one for a long time, so I finally made the purchase. They instantly add “class” to any dish you are serving. With all the summer entertaining coming up, I thought it was a great investment.

Plus, they’re not just for trifle! I took my favorite Spaghetti Salad with Italian Dressing to a potluck in this bowl and it really stood out among the crowd. If you don’t have a trifle bowl, any 3-quart bowl will work, preferably glass to see the layers.

    Tracy, I am so sorry! I WANT people to save my pins, but Pinterest is messing up. I've emailed them several times with no response. I will take down the button until I can (hopefully) get this resolved. :'(

    Hi, This looks heavenly. It says fresh blueberries, can frozen/thawed be used?

    Hi Linda, thank you! I've never tried using frozen blueberries in this. I would definitely recommend fresh, but if you use thawed be sure they're well drained or the dessert will be watery. Let us know if you try it!

    I am going to make this in individual Mason jars. Do you think it could be made a day ahead or will the cake get too soggy? Thanks!

    You can definitely make it a day ahead. Cute idea with the mason jars!
