Key Lime Trifle

If you love a tangy Key lime pie, this creamy and crunchy trifle will hit the spot!
By Paula Kittelson

My husband loves anything and everything Key lime. Whenever I want to make him happy I just buy a bag of Key limes and surprise him with something tangy. Isn’t he easy to please?! But the other day I decided to change things up a little and came up with a delicious Key lime trifle instead.

Whenever I make a trifle, I like to layer ingredients that have different flavors and textures. One of the layers for this trifle is a super light and fluffy angel food cake. Just add water to the cake mix and there you have it!

You can use a serrated knife or your hands to cut the cake into cubes.

The highlight of this trifle is the creamy and tangy Key lime filling. I start by mixing together sweetened condensed milk and Key lime juice.

To that mixture I gently incorporate freshly whipped cream. That alone could be a lovely dessert!

To add a little crunch to the trifle, I decided to grind some granola bars and add it as a layer.

Here is how I assembled the trifle, starting with the Key lime cream. Then I added a crunchy layer of ground granola bars and chopped white chocolate.

I then added the angel food cake and repeated all the layers again.
