There is nothing quite like summer! BBQ’s, cookouts, poolside chilling, fresh produce, and festivals galore! One of my favorite parts, of course, is the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies that seem to be popping up everywhere.

With all of the fresh produce around, putting together a patriotic 4th of July dessert is super easy. Not only is the fruit cool and delicious, but it is perfect for celebrating the holiday!

This Cherry Berry Trifle is a perfect addition to your holiday celebration. Plus, it is so easy! All you do is layer pre-made white or pound cake with vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and fresh fruit. The result is not only delicious, but also gorgeous.
