This is a simple and delicious summer dessert that has a beautiful presentation at BBQs and parties. Don’t you just love the bright patriotic colors? Adults and kids alike will love eating these adorable Red, White and Blue Mini Berry Trifles. The mint leaves give it a nice fresh, crisp taste too.
Just like my Patriotic Red White and Blue Layer Cake is the perfect Memorial Day and July 4th, so is this dessert! When sweet, red ripened strawberries and blueberries are in season, is a great time to make it.
Don’t you just love summer? Summer is my absolute favorite season of the year. I love the longer days, warm weather, green grass, green leaf-filled trees, garden vegetables, fresh sweet fruit, flip-flops, and pool days.
Summer parties are always fun too. Sitting on the deck having refreshing Watermelon Pineapple Mint Mojitos and watching the kids play until the bugs start using my legs as their own biting party.
Bugs and humidity are about the only things I dislike about summer. I need a screened in porch for sure!
Like Autumn and holiday desserts are something to look forward to, so are summer desserts. These Easy Mini Angel Food Mini Berry Trifles are just the festive desert to make and bring to parties. Adding little American flag toothpicks to these mini trifles would be perfect for Memorial Day or July 4th BBQs. Angel Food Cake in this desert makes the calories and fat not so bad especially if you use the Neufchatel cheese, Lite Cool Whip, and fat-free sweetened condensed milk. It will still taste great!
We have to watch our calories after eating the second helping of Creamy Red Dill Potato Salad! I just want a faster metabolism. Is that too much to ask?
Red, White and Blue Individual Trifles in a Glass
After you chop the strawberries or drop them in a food processor (pulse a couple of times but, don’t puree!) Combine the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk.
Scrape the bowl because it’ll stick to the sides like your toddler to your leg. Then, simply start to layer the dessert into the cups.
Angel Food Cake, blueberries, cream cheese mixture, Cool Whip, more cake, strawberries, Cool Whip and topped with mint leaves. It is so easy, especially using a store-bought Angel Food Cake.
I don’t bother making the boxed cake when I can buy one for a few dollars. It makes it so much easier. I need easy! You need easy…We all need easy!
Make Ahead Mason Jar Desserts
Using clear disposable cups make clean up easier vs. using small Mason jars but, the Mason jars are adorable! They would look really cute displayed on a tiered serving platter.
Fill the the Mason Jars ahead of time and place them in the refrigerator. They’ll last for a few days in your fridge, covered with jar lids or even plastic wrap.
These Red, White and Blue Berry Trifles Mini Berry Trifles aren’t only cute single serve, festive summer desserts but, they are also easy-to-make.
The fresh berry flavor, sweetened cream cheese and a layer of Cool Whip makes it a light-tasting, delicious summer berry desert to share at Memorial Day and July 4th BBQs.
They are kids approved. So put your flip-flops on, get some sparklers for the kids and spring into summer.
