Blueberry and Lemon Trifle
Blueberry and Lemon Trifle is a perfect blend of tart and tangy in a creamy smooth filling, topped with whipped cream. What could taste better? And this recipe makes it all much quicker and easier with commercial foods that you can buy at the store and assemble in minutes in your kitchen. Chill it all, and you have a great dessert or snack for any one who needs a bite to eat. This recipe puts the dessert in to individual dishes, clear glass ones, in order to showcase how pretty the berries and pudding look layered with the vanilla cake and whipped cream. Be sure to use whipped cream, as it always brings a bit of homemade and so improved flavor to a dish like this one.
Blueberries are one of the best fruits to eat for their vitamins and minerals as well as their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacity. Few fruits (or veggies) are better than berries in this regard. Fresh is always best, but frozen berries are a great second choice. When you can, buy them in season, and from an organic farmer in your region. Lemon complements the berries well, and the double tang of these two sharp fruits will work wonderfully against the smoother and richer flavors of vanilla cake and whipped cream. This is a beautiful combination that every one on your list will enjoy.
Trifle is a traditional British dessert that combines a cake or cookie base, often soaked in liquor, then layers any number of fruit with the cake or cookie and smothers the whole thing in whipping cream. This dish is a quick and easy emulation of that original dish. And your family will adore it. Try it soon!
