Easy Strawberry Trifle Recipe for Christmas

My easy strawberry Trifle recipe is an absolute must on our Christmas dessert menu. Everyone loves this strawberry trifle recipe and because it is so fast & easy to put together, I take it to Christmas parties or Christmas dinners throughout the holiday season.

Although I consider it a dessert, I have noticed over the years when I prepare it, that many people add it to their dinner plate, or eat it instead of a salad before their main meal. Obviously, either time is fine with me. I am just glad to serve something everyone will eat and I am always trilled to see people enjoying this delicious treat.

Recommended Trifle Bowls

When I am serving just my immediate family and a few guests, I make the recipe, as is, above. That trifle will easily serve 8 – 12 people. On these occasions, I use my short trifle bowl.

However, for party or large dinner, I double my Strawberry Trifle Recipe and prepare it in a taller trifle bowl, which will accommodate 6 triple layered sections.
