LEMON BLUEBERRY TRIFLE
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today. As we start summer I’m excited for relaxed schedules and lounging by the pool.
One of my favorite parts of this time of year is the fresh seasonal fruit that is just begging to be eaten. I had a huge carton of blueberries just waiting to be used in this.
This Lemon Blueberry Trifle has layers of angel food cake, creamy lemon filling and fresh blueberries. There’s something magical when lemon and blueberry get together. It was a marriage meant to be.
The lemon filling is made by whisking your lemon pudding mix and cold milk together.
It’s really important to use a quality whole milk when you’re making desserts especially when milk is one of the main ingredients like in this recipe so that you get that indulgent taste.
I’ve been known to add a splash of milk into our marinara sauce or other dinners for a little extra creaminess.
My family sees a lot of food come out of my kitchen and they were racing for seconds of this.

What’s the sugar/carb info?
This recipe is to die for. Highly recommended!! Thanks, Christy.
Can you substitute lady fingers for cake?
I made this as a treat for my family before the 4th of July. They loved it. The only difference was I used co whip adding the vanilla flavoring.. This recipe is a keeper.
Oh I also couldn’t get the cream to stiffen as well. I keep cool whip in the freezer as a “just in case”.
What size cool whip did you use?
Have you ever whipped cream before? It’s important that your ingredients are chilled.
I made this for a luncheon today. It was so pretty! I followed it exactly. I would like more lemon flavoring, which I could add. Also, it was very thick, which was just fine, but I would like it creamier and I could fix that too. Everyone loved it, just some of my own personal thoughts. Would sure make it again!! Not the best picture, but pretty for Wyoming!! 😂I couldn’t get the picture to drop in!! 🤷♀️
Glad you liked it!
Can you use almond milk, or any plant milk, if your lactose free
Can I use frozen blue berries!
Yes you can!
Followed directions EXACTLY other than the brand of whole milk and the pudding would not thicken at all! It’s liquid. Before anyone asks, no I did not buy actual Jello. Will try again eventually. Not happy!
Yes I would stick with Jello. I’m sorry! I’ve never had good results with generic.
This happened to me!! And I did use jello brand 🙁
This looks so good! Even though it’s not summer I’m still going to make it just to try it! Thanks for the recipe 💛
I love this one!
Can this be made in individual sherbet dishes?
Can this be made the night before? Or is it best made the day of?
You can make it the night before! It keeps for a couple of days.
Turned out great!! This was a hit at our family reunion.
So glad you liked it!
Can u use normal mill if u cant get Promiseland milk?????
Yes, you can use normal milk.
Can you use banana pudding instead of lemon?
Sure! I don’t see why not.
Could you use frozen blueberries ? Blueberries here are VERY expensive right now , so if I used thawed frozen would it work?
Could you use cool whip instead of creme?
Do you think i could substitute lemon curd for the pudding ?
oh absolutely. It’s very versatile.
I just made this trifle for Easter luncheon, much to everyone’s delight! (I opted for white vanilla cake instead of angel food.) The taste was exquisite, and looked it AMAZING! I’d love to share a photo!
I would love to see a photo. I love that you made it!
Is it ok to make this the night before?
Can i switch the angel food for regular vanila cake? We dont find angel food where i live 🙁
Oh yes, for sure!
I love lemon and blueberries together! What a great way to hold onto summer just a little bit longer!
Blueberry and lemon is a delicious combo!
This looks delicious and the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer!
