Here is a fun, easy July 4th dessert for you!  It is easily transported so it is a favorite of mine to make. You probably saw me making this if you follow me on Snapchat (thelushlist). The first round of whipped cream turned into some weird butter/yogurt concoction…yuck!  This is the recipe I use…just don’t get distracted talking to your friend while you are making it!

This patriotic dessert is sure to be a hit at your celebration this weekend. If you don’t have a trifle bowl, you can also use a large clear bowl and it is just as pretty.  I use my trifle bowl a lot for other things…salad bowl, displaying fruit, even serving sangria.

I have to show you this top once again.  I can’t get over the detail and gorgeous beading…and fact that it is Tommy Bahama!  So well priced for all the handiwork! Another brand would be so much more expensive.
