Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

Berry Trifle


Guess what I had for breakfast this morning? 😉

Yup, you guessed it. This is one of those recipes that I wait around all year long to make (for whatever reason?), but it's just the perfect treat for the 4th. It's easy to make ahead of time, light and fluffy, and absolutely delicious.


Perfect, right? Here's how to whip it up in your kitchen too, plus all the best prices on everything you need so you can pinch those pennies too. 😉

  1. Whitney Nichols says

    Is that supposed to say 1tsp strawberries and 1quart strawberries? I don't want to miss an ingredient

    • I’m so sorry Whitney & Cynthia – I completely missed that (that’s what happens when my kids run in and out while I’m typing!) I fixed it 🙂

  2. I was wondering also, but think it’s some other ingredient, instead of strawberries, cause not measure in tsp.

  3. Can I make the cream filling ahead of time and assemble the next day? Will it spread okay?
