My husband and I frequently celebrate the Fourth of July with a cookout at our place. I love to serve this trifle because it is Red, White and Blue festive and the berries are great in season!

If you don't have time to make the pudding, just skip the water and pudding mix and use already prepared pudding cups. Instead of whipping cream, you can use Cool Whip. Don't forget the lemon zest though. It really makes the flavor great!

Use a prepared cake to make it easier, too.

You can reserve some whipped cream, a few blueberries and a few strawberries to top the trifle with a garnish.
