Vanilla Berry Trifle

Summer is the PERFECT opportunity to incorporate fruit into desserts. Most fruits are in season and this makes your wallet happy! And, you know us… we like to do everything With a Side of Thriftiness! I love to venture to the local farmer’s market on Saturday mornings to buy the freshest of fruit at a fantastic price. I have incorporated three of Summer’s berries into this refreshingly delicious trifle: Strawberries, Blueberries and Raspberries! Below you will find the recipe. I have made it easy to incorporate this recipe into your recipe box with a simple print feature. Enjoy!
