Strawberry Trifle

This is the most awesome summer dessert. I made it for Father's Day and it was our first TRIFLE of the season. Fresh strawberries and raspberries are my most favorite berries and I love pineapple and watermelon too!

We had a wonderful dinner together with my kids and my grandkids! It's so fun being a Grandma! I took some pictures of the trifle and I've included the recipe and tell me what you think if you have a chance to make it for your family! ENJOY!
