New Recipe: Trifles with a lemon surprise

This citrus and sweet, flavor-packed dessert is perfect for summer! The lemon flavor is a nice surprise since it’s incorporated into the Cool Whip. From the looks of it, you don’t see lemon, you just taste it.

Duncan Hines’ lemon pie filling is my go-to for this dessert. It’s creamy but has a great texture with Cool Whip. When it’s mixed together, it’s white but the lemon flavor really shines through.

To keep this dish quick and easy, I grab a loaf cake from the market and cut it into cubes. If you have more time, feel free to make the loaf cake from scratch. This is a great dessert to take to a spring or summer party, but remember to serve it cold. It’s a bright, beautiful and refreshing dessert that everyone will love.

Strawberry and Lemon Trifles

Prep time: 5 minutes | Assemble time: 10 minutes | Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

8oz Cool Whip

4tbs Duncan Hines lemon pie filling

1 loaf cake, cut into small strips or cubes

Strawberries, cut up

Toasted coconut flakes

Recipe

In a small mixing bowl, add the Cool Whip and lemon pie filling and begin mixing it together. Smash the chunks of Cool Whip for it to become a creamy consistency.

If you’re unsure of how to toast coconut flakes: lay 1 cup of coconut flakes on a microwave-safe plate. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until they begin to brown. Stirring every 30 seconds is key for evenly toasted flakes.

Grab individual serving cups and begin assembling the trifles.

First, add a small handful of loaf cake cubes, then a spoonful of strawberries, top with a spoonful or two of the Cool Whip and lemon mixture and sprinkle coconut flakes on top and you’re one with the first. Now continue assembling the rest of the cups.

Serve cold.
