Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches Trifle

Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches Trifle - a delicious and cool layered dessert with sweetened condensed milk, coconut milk, whipped cream pudding, cinnamon and strawberries.

Summer time to me means relaxing days, hanging with the family, gathering for summer BBQs and trying delicious new recipes. Since it gets so stinkin’ hot here in AZ all the dessert recipes usually have fruit or have some kind of cool element to it. We recently tried a recipe for Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches trifle and fell in love…. literally. My husband says it’s his new favorite dessert!

I admit I had never tried regular Tres Leches cake before but if you know a little Spanish, you know it means three milks. That’s exactly what’s included in the popular dessert as well as in this trifle – 3 milks. In this recipe there is sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened coconut milk and whipped cream. And with all that goodness, as well as strawberries, pudding mix, cinnamon and angel food cake, it’s really hard to go wrong with this treat!

Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches Trifle

As you know with most trifles, this is a layered dessert. It starts with the angel food cake that has been mixed with the sweetened condensed milk, coconut milk and sour cream. Following that is a layer of the sliced strawberries. After that there is a pudding mixture that also has sweetened condensed milk, coconut milk, whipped cream and cinnamon. The layers are repeated and everything is topped off with more whipped cream and some whole strawberries. DELICIOUS!
