Strawberry Vanilla Pudding Trifle {#LuckyLeafSpring}

IMG_9912 Spring has finally come to Minnesota.  Well, at least I hope so.  Technically the trees don’t have any buds yet, but the robins have descended.  That’s a good sign, right?  To help bring a bit of spring from the outdoors into my home, I recently received a bouquet of tulips from FTD.  Receive a special discount of $10 off select spring bouquets courtesy of Lucky LeafIMG_9885 While I might not have any tulips yet outside, at least I can have my own spring indoors with these beautiful flowers.   IMG_9891 To coincide with my spring tulips I also created a delicious Strawberry Vanilla Trifle.  I was inspired by Lucky Leaf’s Strawberry White Chocolate Trifle, but I decided to add a few touches that are a better fit for my family.   IMG_9903  For instance, the white chocolate mousse is made using cream cheese.  My guys are not big fan of this ingredient, so instead I decided to swap in some vanilla pudding.  It is an easy switch and creates a better dessert specifically for my family.   IMG_9919  The perfect mix of a fresh strawberry dessert paired with spring blooms creates an atmosphere of a refreshing newness within our house.  Spring has arrived indeed.  IMG_9957

     This dish can be prepared in a traditional trifle bowl or in the individual containers I selected.  I even used some banana float glasses I had on hand! There are no bananas involved, but it is still a perfect fit!

 Of course, the ultimate compliment to any recipe is an empty container.

    I love that you swapped out the cream cheese for vanilla pudding! I personally love cream cheese, but I have several boxes of vanilla pudding that are sitting in my pantry. I wouldn’t have thought to use it in a trifle. Can’t wait to make this!

    What a beautiful dessert. It looks so elegant but seems so simple. I can’t wait to try this for my family.

    This looks so beautiful and refreshing! Today was 90 degrees so a cupful of this would have been a treat.

  4. Elizabeth says:

    This looks really delicious! I love pudding and I love trifles, but I’ve never made one myself. I’m not sure why not, because they look suuuuper easy to do!

    I also like to take recipes and put my own spin on them. I have come up with some of my families favorite recipes by doing this.
