Mason Jar Berry Trifles

Mason Jar Berry Trifles

Cheese Cake Berry Trifle in Mason Jars!


Happy Memorial Day!  I love making fun sweet treats to have at special times of the year!  Well Strawberries and blueberries are in soooo I thought I would make a trifle today for Memorial Day!  I didn't want to use my regular trifle bowl, I wanted something a little more rugged...and here it is..in a Mason Jar! 

Fresh berries

As you can see they are a little messy to make but they sure taste yummy!  You can do this recipe and make it fit for whatever fruit is in..can't wait to make just strawberry shortcake, or fresh peaches and cream, or even chocolate dream cookie...you see...making these are addicting...but lets see if we can make it a little bit more figure friendly!


Cheese Cake Berry Trifle
Angel food cake

1 quart of strawberries
1 pint of blueberries
2 packages of instant Cheese cake pudding (fat free/sugar free)
4 cups cold milk
1 angel food cake
1 small tub cool whip 
8 pint mason jars/ 16 half pints jars

First rinse all your berries.  Cut the tops off your strawberries then slice them. Leave your blueberries whole. Set aside...In a mixing bowl, pour in your pudding mix and milk and mix until really creamy! Slice your cake in small pieces...make sure all of your jars are rinsed and dry.  I started my layering with a little cake in the bottom, then some fruit, add your pudding mixture with a spoon,(try not to get on the sides, if you do wipe off with dry paper towel) mine got a little messy...then add more cake, berries and pudding. Top with cool whip and fresh berries. If you are making these up a head of time ...don't fill them too much or the top won't fit. Put the top on your jars and keep in the refrigerator until serving time!

There is nothing better than homemade with a little help from the store! You can always use your trifle bowl or punch bowl for these wonderful treats! But getting your own serving in a special jar, cup, dish is totally amazing! It might take a little longer to do but your guests with LOVE it! Be creative!!! I will post more of these kind of treats..so keep watching! Don't forget you can make this same one for the 4th of July too!!! Add a little ribbon and wholla....I wish that I had a little American flag to stick in the top..that would be so cute!




Mason Jar Trifle fun....
