I don’t know what it is about summer but it seems like there is a party every week that requires me bringing some fabulous dessert that can feed a crowd. I kind of love that about summer.

Trifles are my thing. There is nothing you can’t throw in a trifle bowl that doesn’t end up looking mega-impressive and fancy yet somehow totally approachable and makes people want to just DIG IN.

Plus, its kind of fun to decorate the top :)

Lemon and raspberry are one of my favorite summer flavor combinations. They just taste like the SUN to me. The best part about trifles is they typically take somewhere in the 5-10 minute range to assemble and are usually no-bake, like this one.

I started with a no-bake cheesecake filling made with light cream cheese and cool whip. You could totally whip up some heavy cream and fold that in instead – your choice. Next, I made up some lemon pudding using the convenience of packaged pudding mixes and Almond Breeze almondmilk. I love substituting  almondmilk into recipes and was delighted with the flavor it added to the lemon pudding.

The cheesecake filling and pudding can be refrigerated while you cut up the angel food cake (you could use any type of cake here – pound cake, yellow cake, vanilla cake, etc. ) and rinse and dry the raspberries.

Next it’s time to layer. Angel food cake, cheesecake filling, lemon pudding, raspberries. Repeat. It just doesn’t get any easier. Throw the trifle in the fridge until needed or your willpower breaks down and you sneak a spoonful. Whichever happens first.

  8. I think I’d wind up sneaking more than one spoonful. Several sounds more like it. I can’t resist lemon or cheesecake!

    This looks so yummy! I’m going to make this for a reunion and will use pound cake for it. Would 1 work for it or would I need to use 2?

  12. Wow, you are making me hungry with this yummy looking trifle. I will be making one for my 12th and 8th graders nieces and nephews graduation party. Thanks again.

  13. I made this for a super bowl party because all the other food on the menu was gonna be pretty heavy/unhealthy. Thought I’d offer something lighter for dessert and it was an absolute hit! My husband keeps requesting I make it again and again :) The only modification I made was to mix some pound cake cubes (store bought) in with the angle food cake, but of course, that adds a few more calories (worth it!).
