Strawberry Cheasecake Trifle

I love trifle desserts, so when I saw this strawberry cheasecake version on a cooking show I had to try it out. Especially since strawberries are in season and cheap this year. We had it for the first time for a dinner party we threw and it was (as always) a big hit. Such a simple and easy dessert that is versitile for any occasion. Whether a BBQ or a fancy dinner. Alos to note: we used Annalisa's pound cake recipe in this one!


2 qt. strawberries, sliced
1 cup sugar, divided
2 8 oz. packages cream chease, softened
3 Tbsp lime juice
3 cups whipping cream, whipped
1 loaf (10 oz) pound cake, cubed
1 large chocolate bar, grated
chocolate swirls and strawberries to garnish


Toss strawberries in 1/2 cup sugar. Allow to chill in fridge until juicy. About 1 hour

Cream together the lime juice, cream chease, and 1/2 cup of sugar. Add the whipped
cream and blend until creamy. (Make sure you blend the cream chease, sugar, and lime juice together first or the acid will curdle the whipped cream).

Drain the juice off of the strawberries and drizzle onto the cake cubes.

Layer in trifle bowl as follows:

1/2 cake cubes
1/3 cream chease mixture
1/2 strawberries
chocolate shavings
remaining cake cubes
1/3 cream chease mixture
remaining strawberries
chocolate shavings
remaining cream chease mixture
chocolate shavings
strawberries to garnish


  1. Yum! This looks and sounds so delicious!

  2. This sounds so good... I've been wanting to make the cream cheese pound cake... maybe I will have to and use it in this recipe!

  3. I will make this sooner rather than later.

  4. This looks like a fabulous Summer dessert! Yum!

  5. Tried this recipe this weekend and loved loved loved it! It was a great reason to buy myself my first trifle dish!

  6. I made this yesterday for our senior couples and office financial secretary who are leaving. It was delicious. I had this feeling that I could also add almond flavoring and it would be good.
