I created this festive treat in partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market.

I know I can depend on Sprouts for fresh and beautiful fruit (and veggies) and then I can stock up on all of my baking stables like sugar, vanilla and graham crackers, so I have everything I need on hand to make a quick and beautiful treat!

You’ll find everything you need for this recipe from Sprouts… and if you’re like me, you’ll find that lots more delicious things just seem find their way into your cart too!

In fact, one of my family’s favorite Sprouts brand treats are their Old Fashioned Vanilla Wafers… which would work perfectly well in this recipe as well (just swap out the graham crackers).

This 4th of July Berry Cheesecake Trifle is actually a refresh of a recipe I shared 5 years ago, this Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifle.

It’s such a delicious concept, I thought it really deserved a pretty make-over and a little recipe update.

  • ¾ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 6-7 large strawberries diced
  • 1 tablespoon honey or sugar


  • 9 Sprouts graham crackers 1 sleeve
  • 1/3 butter melted
  • 1 tbsp Sprouts sugar


  • 8 oz cream cheese 1 package
  • ¾ cup Sprouts powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Sprouts vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • Watermelon optional


Prepare the fruit

  • Combine fruit in a bowl with 1 tbsp. of honey or sugar, then stir well and set in the fridge until ready to use.

Make the crumble

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Add crackers to a plastic zipper type bag and crush (with a rolling pin).
  • In a medium sized bowl, melt butter, and then add crushed graham crackers and sugar. Stir well, then spread onto a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes.
  • Allow to cool while preparing the cheesecake filling.


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon zest and blend well.
  • While slowly mixing, add (cold) heavy cream slowly, then whip until smooth and increased in volume by almost double.


  • Begin assembly by adding 1-2 tbsp. (cooled) crumble to the bottom of 4 (1/2 pint sized) jars.
  • Add a layer of cheesecake, then a layer of fruit.
  • Repeat layers, as desired, depending on the jars or dishes you’re using.
  • If desired, add watermelon star garnish by using a star shaped cookie cutter to cut starts out of a large slice of watermelon. Add watermelon stars to paper straws and garnish your trifles.
  • Refrigerate trifles for 15 minutes before serving, or up to 6 hours.


To make one large trifle - Double the crumble portion, and triple the fruit and cheesecake portions.
If you need to make this a truly no-bake dessert, feel free to omit the step of baking the crumble. The crumble will still be perfectly delicious, just not quite as crispy.

  1. Can I make this day(s) in advance?

    • Hi Ashley,
      You can prepare the graham cracker crumble 1-2 days in advance, and you can prepare the cheesecake filling one day in advance. I would not suggest assembling them until the day you plan to serve them.

  2. Looks so good.

  3. Hem.. It’s look beautifull

  4. This looks absolutely perfect for these hot summer days and so festive for the upcoming 4th holiday!
