Happy Memorial Day, my friends! As part of this weekend to celebrate those that have served our country, many of us gather with friends and family. It’s a wonderful time for community and the unofficial start to summer.
Over this week I’ll share a few recipes I tried that worked well for a cookout we had last night. Of course I had to post this first since it’s red, white, and blue! I found it on a blog I follow, Skinnytaste.com.
I like this recipe because it’s delicious, pretty, super easy, and a healthier option than a cake or pie (ignoring that I also had Texas Sheet Cake for dessert too).
Here’s the recipe: Red, White and Blueberry Trifle
The recipe calls for fat free condensed milk and non fat cool whip. I used the regular version of the sweetened condensed milk, not for any reason – I just forgot to buy the other kind. I used the lite cool whip because that’s what I had in my freezer. I’m assuming the recipe version would taste just as good. The white chocolate flavor pudding wasn’t carried in the first store I stopped in but found it at Kroger. I used a store bought angel food cake.
This recipe is no more difficult than slicing strawberries and a couple minutes of whisking. It definitely tastes better than the effort it takes. Love those recipes. It’s a delicious way to take advantage of all the berries in season right now.
