Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifle

This Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifle recipe is surprisingly simple… and simply delicious!

One of my favorite things about summer is the availability of delicious, fresh fruit!

Fruit is such a beautiful accent to many desserts, and in the case of these red, white and blue trifles, fruit is the perfect way to add color!

To compliment these fresh summer berries, I whipped up a fluffy, no-bake cheesecake (from my Cherries on a Cloud recipe).

The result is a red, white and blue treat that comes together in under 30 minutes and is just so perfectly cute!



The desserts shown are in 5 oz juice glasses (from my local grocery store).

In place of Cool Whip I used an all natural version I discovered at Whole Foods Market,  Truwhip, and was very happy with it!

Fresh, organic berries provided by Whole Foods Market.

Mini wooden spoons from Garnish.  The bakers twine is from The Twinery.

  1. Would it be possible to make this in a trifle dish? Would I have to double the recipe?

  2. I was wondering how far in advance you think it is safe to make these? The night before?

    • Hi Denise,
      I prefer to serve them the same day they are assembled, but you can prepare all of the components ahead of time (at least a day in advance) and then assemble the day of serving.

  3. Trader Joe’s sells the equivalent of TruWhip called “House Whip”. Last I checked, it was $1.99 and had the exact same ingredients and nutritional facts as “TruWhip”. Just an FYI for those not close to Whole Foods like me!

    I’m trying to keep my hydrogenated oils and polysorbate 60 to a minimum 🙂

    • Hi Mary Ellen, Great to hear! I have seen that product at Trader Joe’s, and I LOVE all things Trader Joe’s, but I hadn’t tried it yet. I have made this recipe with real whipped cream as well and so that’s a good option.
