Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

While browsing through the recipes on Walnut Pesto, you will notice that most ingredients are pantry and fridge staples. If I do use an odd ingredient, I am most likely to use it in other recipes.

I don’t like to waste any food, if I do buy ingredients for a particular test dish, I always use up leftovers in other meals, and sometimes end up creating a new test dish lol.

This was the case when I created this trifle.

I had leftover custard from the malva pudding, the night before, and a handful of strawberries. I checked around the kitchen to see what else was available, and I found some chocolate chip muffins and some cream cheese. I put it together and came up with this decadent and easy trifle.

Give this dessert a try when you are looking for something quick, easy and refreshing and it does not require any setting time as well.
