Blackberry Trifle for Six

My husband’s favorite fruit is blackberries so for his birthday dinner I decided to use some of the blackberries I had picked and froze over the summer and make blackberry trifle. I didn’t want to have any leftovers so I made each person their own trifle in a stemmed wine glass. It made a really nice presentation and was very easy to do. I’m sure this would work with frozen mixed berries as well.

1 small pound cake, cubed
1 large can of whipped cream
4 C. frozen blackberries, thawed
2 T. sugar
1 T. lemon juice
3 T. blackberry wine
1 small pkg. of sugar-free cook and serve vanilla pudding made according to the package instructions and cooled.

Blend two cups of the thawed blackberries, sugar, lemon juice, and wine in a food processor until smooth. Mash the rest of the blackberries a little and add to the blackberry sauce.

Meanwhile, gently fold about 4 C. of whipped cream into the cooled pudding.

To assemble a trifle for each person, gather six stemmed wine glasses and place a layer of cubed pound cake in the bottom of each, followed by a layer of blackberry sauce, and then a layer of the vanilla-whipped cream mixture. Repeat these layers one more time and garnish with whipped cream and fresh blackberries.
