Strawberry Sugar Biscuit Trifle

This Father’s Day since we are in our new home, we are inviting the dads to come over for an outdoor BBQ.  I really want to make a light, fruity dessert and heard about this mouth-watering strawberry trifle.  It’s like one large, delicious strawberry shortcake!  Do any of you have any Father’s Day recipe ideas?

 

Ingredients

  • Sugar Biscuits
  • 6  tablespoons  orange liqueur or orange juice, divided
  • 2 1/2  pounds  strawberries, halved
  • Trifle Custard
  • 1 1/2  cups  whipping cream
  • 1/4  cup  plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Garnishes: strawberries, mint leaves

Preparation

Cut Sugar Biscuits in half; brush cut sides evenly with 5 tablespoons orange liqueur.
Line bottom of a 4-quart bowl or trifle bowl with eight Sugar Biscuit halves. Arrange strawberry halves around lower edge of bowl. Spoon one-third of Trifle Custard evenly over Sugar Biscuit halves; top with one-third of remaining strawberry halves. Repeat layers twice, ending with strawberry layer. Drizzle remaining orange liqueur evenly over top. Cover and chill 3 to 4 hours.
Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Spread over trifle; serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.

Strawberry Trifle (Healthy recipe)

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with joy & delicious food.  With that said, during this holiday season it is hard to stay on a healthy track with all the holiday treats around.  My idea is that the next holiday gathering I go to, I am bringing a healthy dessert because when there are delicious healthy choices amongst the cookies, brownies, and cheesecakes, it may make healthy choice just a little easier.

Ingredients:

  • 10-ounces frozen, unsweetened strawberries
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 2 egg whites

Directions:

  1. Combine strawberries and sugar in a food processor and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine strawberry mixture and yogurt.
  3. In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer to whisk egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  4. Add egg whites into the mixture and stir until smooth.  Spoon into serving glasses and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Garnish with mint just before serving.
