Easy Lemon Dip Filling
The filling for this lemon trifle is actually a popular Living Locurto recipe! Easy Lemon Dip is light and fluffy and has just the right amount of lemon flavor. It’s mouth watering and oh so delicious!
Here is what you need for these Lemon Trifles:
- Non-fat Greek yogurt
- Cool Whip
- Instant lemon pudding
- Angel food cake or pound cake
- Fresh raspberries or strawberries
- Lemons for garnish
- Trifle bowl
Serve it up in a large trifle serving bowl, which not only shows off the gorgeous layers, but will also feed a large crowd.
I love making individual serving trifles for parties with mason jars, stemless wine glasses, plastic cups or mini trifle bowls pictured here.
I love making this recipe with raspberries and strawberries because the red fruit really pops along side of the yellow lemon filling. And of course they create the perfect amount of tartness with the sweet lemon filling!
Bake your own pound cake or buy one already made from your grocery store. I like to buy cake, because I usually need a homemade dessert last-minute. Use angel food cake for our lemon trifle if you want something lighter and low-carbs.
