Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle Recipe

Strawberry cheesecake trifle recipe

This strawberry cheesecake trifle recipe is a favorite in our house! Last week I took the boys strawberry picking. If you’re local, we went to Bowman Farms in Rexford. They had a great time and we used our fresh strawberries to make this strawberry cheesecake trifle for Father’s Day.

Trifle bowl desserts are perfect for entertaining as they’re so easy to make ahead of time and always looks so pretty! (If you don’t have a trifle bowl, I love this one on Amazon!)

I’m sharing my strawberry cheesecake trifle recipe below.

But first a cute pic of my M&M’s in the strawberry fields 🙂

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle Recipe

Ingredients

For the cake layer

  • cubed pound cake or angel food cake. (I love to use Sara Lee frozen pound cake. I usually buy 2 loaves and use 1 1/2 of them.)

For the cheesecake layer

  • 16 oz of cream cheese (room temp)
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • another 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

For the strawberry layer

  • 2 pounds of sliced strawberries (you can use fresh or frozen)

Directions

  1.  Start by preparing your cheesecake layer. In a large bowl, cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar.
  2.  Add in the sour cream, vanilla extract and almond extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract and sugar.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Layer the bottom of the trifle bowl with cubed pound cake or angel food cake.
  6. Spread a thick layer of the cheesecake mixture, covering all the cake.
  7. Next layer with sliced strawberries.
  8. Repeat another layer of cake and cheesecake.
  9. Top with sliced strawberries. (If not serving right away, wait to top with strawberries so that the juices don’t run.)

Cover and keep refrigerated until serving. Scoop into dessert bowls.

(If you’re making for Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day, I also like to add in blueberries for the red, white and blue theme!)

Easy homemade bubble solution with 3 ingredients

Homemade bubble solution

When I think about summer I think about the smell of sunscreen, playing outside all day, eating endless watermelon and popsicles and bubbles. My kids love bubbles. It will occupy them for hours. At the beginning of every summer, I buy bottles of bubbles and usually after a few days, they end up getting spilled all over the deck. Using only 3 ingredients that you probably already have at home, you can whip up a big batch of this easy homemade bubble solution with my recipe below. I’m also sharing how to make your own bubble wands.

(For more summer activities and ideas be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post and check out some other of my blogger friends I’ve teamed up with!)

Easy Homemade Bubble Solution

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 cups of dish soap
  • 3/4 cup of corn syrup, glycerine or sugar

Directions:

  1. In a large gallon jug, pour the water, dish soap and corn syrup (or glycerin or sugar) stirring until well combined. Let it sit overnight.
  2. Pour into separate smaller bottles or set up a large bubble station outside with some bubble wands (showing you how to make your own below)

Homemade Bubble Wands

homemade bubble wands

You will need:

  • pipe cleaners or a thick wire
  • scissors or wire cutters
  • beads

This is a great activity for your kids to do on their own. I made a few wands ahead of time and laid them out to show as an example. You may need to be close by to help with the cutting.

Tip – I found that a thick wire (old wire hangers are great!) work better than the pipe cleaners. Eventually the pipe cleaners got soggy from the bubbles and didn’t hold up as well.
