Two Peas and Their Pod: Berry Trifle with Lemon Mousse

Berry Trifle with Lemon Mousse

I am loving Spring. It is finally here and I can't get enough of it! Yesterday I went on a long run and it was actually HOT! It felt really good though, I just have to remember my sunscreen next time:) Oh, and Happy Earth Day! Do something extra special to save the environment today!

I have been finding some great sales on berries, too good to pass up. I love eating them on my cereal or just plain for a healthy snack. I bought way too many so I decided to celebrate Spring with a Berry Trifle.

I love trifles, they are easy, pretty, and the variations are endless. This time I went with strawberries, blackberries, and I made a lemon mousse. I also added in a few pieces of my lemon angel food cupcakes. I just tore them into chunks and placed them in between the berries and mousse.

It was really hard to eat this trifle, not because it didn't look good, but because it looked TOO good. I didn't want to mess it up, but eventually I gave in and I am glad I did. The trifle was delightful. The lemon mousse is very light and refreshing. You really don't need the angel food cake, but why not? It made the trifle extra special. If you have an abundance of berries, try a berry trifle. Trust me, it will make your day!

Berry Trifle with Lemon Mousse

  • (Printable Recipe)

  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix (I used sugar free)

    2 cups milk (I used skim)

    1 half-pint container heavy whipping cream

    1 tablespoon granulated sugar



    Lemon Angel Food Cupcakes (you can leave them out or substitute any angel food cake)

    In a medium to large bowl, mix instant pudding mix and milk; stir thoroughly and set aside. In another medium-sized bowl, beat heavy whipping cream and sugar on medium to high speed (with an electric mixer) until stiff peaks form. Working in thirds, gently fold whipped cream into pudding mixture until thoroughly combined. If necessary, whip combined mixture again until thickened.

    To assemble the trifle, layer the mousse, berries, and cake. Get creative and make it pretty. We used mini trifle dishes, you can make one big one if you wish.

I love trifles! There was a nutter butter banana pudding one in S. Living I've been dying to try!

I'm still waiting for berry season around here. It will be time for strawberries in a few weeks. Then they won't cost as much.

I'm glad you put the cake in the trifle. Part of what I love about trifle is the mix of textures. I love the squoosh of cream and the firmness of berries against the crumb of a cake. Nice work.

This would be a hit at my house especially with my youngest who loves berries. I have to hide them from her if I'm trying to make something specific with them. :)Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Huzzah for instant pudding! It makes life so easy sometimes. I just bought some very huge strawberries from TJ's and the lemon mousse would go great. We don't have blackberries or any other berry for that matter yet. So it will just have to be strawberries for me.

Looks delicious. I make a trifle that is quite similar but have never tried with lemon mousse.

I can't wait for this weekend - Spring weather should be in full effect!
