There are few desserts that are as perfect for serving crowds during warmer weather than this easy blueberry strawberry trifle recipe. It is most definitely one of my family’s favorites.

How to Make Trifle Recipe

To make this trifle recipe, I start with the classics of tender vanilla cake, creamy vanilla pudding, sliced strawberries, fresh blueberries, and perfectly fluffy whipped cream.

I begin by adding a bit of my vanilla pudding to the bottom of a glass trifle bowl. (If you don’t have a trifle bowl, any large bowl will work! A clear glass will show the layers, which is always pretty!)

Then, I add a layer of half of the vanilla cake that I have cut into cubes. Next, I add a layer of about a third of the berries, then whipped cream, and then I repeat until the bowl is filled.

Now, I will say, many people go to great lengths to make sure that every layer of the ingredients shows in their trifle. I’m more of a toss it in there, add the next layer, and let’s get this thing served sorta gal. 🙂

For the top, I add my final third of berries to the top of the whipped cream. I love to add those final berries to the top right before I serve my trifle so that they look fresh and beautiful for serving.

Blueberry Strawberry Trifle Options

While I’ve included my absolute favorite way to serve this trifle, I do have a few options for you that might be helpful:

  • Cake options – Rather than using the vanilla cake called for, you can also grab an Angel Food Cake from the grocery store bakery to use for the cake portion in this recipe. It tastes divine and is ready in a jiffy. Pound cake is also delicious.
  • No Vanilla Pudding – You can simply omit the vanilla pudding in this recipe and simply use whipped cream.
  • Non-dairy topping – While I prefer to use whipped cream in my trifle, some do prefer to use the non-dairy whipped topping that you can find in the freezer section of the grocery store.

Here’s my Blueberry Strawberry Trifle recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!

  1. Robyn: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for adding the Nutrition Facts to your delicious recipes – especially the ‘potassium’. I have a problem with potassium and it’s so good to know just how much is in a serving. Wish all the other good cooks/chefs would do this! God bless you – Debra Aline/Jacksonville, FL

  2. i love a good trifle and I just bought a cute little Trifle bowl so I’ve been looking or a good recipe. This is perfect with the berries and the cake – yum!

  3. Hi

    I really like blueberries and strawberries a lot and I eat them regularly. But, I never tried a trifle with both of them together. Looks very appetizing. Will surely try it out. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. My family loved this dessert.  I wanted to make half of the recipe so I deleted the pudding mix and milk.  It is outstanding!!!

  5. Love this recipe! I made it in individual serving using mason jars. Perfect to bring to friends/family dinner parties!

    1. What a wonderful idea, Leslie! I love making individual desserts for parties – I’m sure you will impress your guests! I’m glad to hear that you enjoy the recipe too. Thanks so much! xo

  6. We made this and it was a BIG hit! Since no dessert should ever lack chocolate (LOL) we shaved some white chocolate over the top…just a bit, and it was so yummy!

    1. I have made this a couple of times now. It has been a big hit both times. I did make substitutions because it was easier for me to make. I used jello instant vanilla pudding & cool whip. Thank you for this delicious dessert.
