Strawberry Banana Trifle Dessert Recipe

One thing I cannot get enough of during this pregnancy is strawberries! We go through so many containers of them a week, it’s insane. Last week, for our Memorial Day get-together, I decided to make one of my favorite desserts using my new trifle dish and my favorite fruit. For as long as I can remember, a berry trifle dessert has accompanied every family gathering. With moist cake, fresh fruit, whipped cream, and pudding, it’s really the perfect summertime dessert!

We always have different version of the berry trifle dessert but my absolute favorite is a Strawberry Banana Trifle. It’s SO good and so easy to make! It was such a big hit last weekend that I’ll probably make it again for the 4th of July and just toss in some blueberries to give it a more patriotic look :)

This light, fluffy dessert will be perfect for all of your Summer gatherings and is sure to be a hit!
