Customizable with any fruit you wish, this recipe is all you need for summer entertaining.

Three Trifles in Jars
Thomas J. Story

This super simple summer fruit trifle from dessert expert Nastassia Johnson (check out her Instagram @letmeeatcake) is our new favorite summer dessert: It’s the perfect way to capture the essence of summer’s ripe peak-season produce. Plus it’s portable and pretty when you layer it in little mason jars that you can load into a picnic basket to take wherever you go. And it’s infinitely improvisable: You can use a colorful mix of plump blueberries and strawberries, juicy peaches, or sweet vibrant plums. Whatever you pick, that beautiful produce deserves a dessert made with equally excellent ingredients to match. 

That’s where the incredible dairy products from Clover Sonoma will help take your dessert to the next level. Clover Sonoma partners with 30 family-owned farms located in California and was the first dairy to be American Humane Certified for the care it gives its cows. All that goodness adds up to freshness and flavor that will take your trifles over the top. Layers of seasonal fruit, buttery pound cake, and velvety pastry cream are stacked into cute single-serve mason jars your family and friends will love. We guarantee you’ll be making this dessert and bringing it to backyard barbecues, picnics, and beach hangs all summer long!
