One Christmas, I made that delicious Red Velvet White Chocolate Trifle. I am crazy over pineapple and my Pineapple Pretzel Fluff Dessert has been the highest viewed recipe post ever! With it being Spring, it was definitely time to pull out my trifle dish again and I wanted to come up with a wonderful pineapple trifle concoction, so the pineapple cheesecake trifle was born and boy did it turn out beautiful, not to mention scrumptious! Wouldn't it be the perfect dessert for Easter dinner or anytime in the Spring and Summer.  


I smiled so big after completing this creation, 
it screams SPRING!!! and YUMMINESS

What you'll need

PINEAPPLE CHEESECAKE TRIFLE
CAKE: 1 Yellow cake mix, I used Pillsbury
1/2 cup Reserved Pineapple Juice
SYRUP:
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
PUDDING LAYER
2 (3 oz) boxes of french vanilla pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk (I used skim)
1/2 cup Reserved Pineapple Juice
 CHEESECAKE LAYER:
2 (8 oz) bricks cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
1 (12 oz) Cool Whip whipped topping
2 ( oz) cans. Pineapple tidbits; drained, reserve juice
mint leaves for garnish, optional

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9x13-inch pan generously with cooking spray
2. Prepare cake: With an electric mixer, mix yellow cake mix and the requested ingredients, substituting 1/2 cup pineapple juice with 1/2 cup water and mix just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. You don't really want the cake to be soft and super moist, so be sure to bake it until it tests done.
3.  Prepare simple syrup: In a small saucepan, bring sugar, and water to boil over medium heat. Stir to dissolve sugar completely. Stir in vanilla. Let cool.
4. Cut the cooled cake into chunks; brush with cooled syrup. 
5. Prepare pudding layer: Make pudding but only use 3 1/2 cups of milk total for both boxes and 1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to assemble Trifle. 
5.  Prepare cheesecake layer: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to medium and slowly pour in whipping cream. Continue beating until mixture resembles soft whipped cream.
6.  Assemble the trifle: In the bottom of your trifle dish, arrange a single layer of yellow cake chunks. Spoon about 1 1/2 cups of the pudding on top of the cake cubes. Next, spread about 1 1/2 cups of the cheesecake mix. Next, add some pineapple. Keep repeating layers until you run out of room in your dish. Garnish with mint leaves and almonds and some additional pineapple pieces.

HAPPY TASTY TUESDAY!!!

VARSITY PINK


No Varsity blues here, we're in the PINK!! And no, while I wish, it's not a gender announcement, those baby days are over. However, it is about pink Adidas LOVE and Varsity style!!


I have always been a fan of the varsity look and wow are retro tennies ever the rage. I love them, they add such hip style to a casual outfit. The minute I saw these Pink Adidas Gazelle's, I knew they had to be mine. Our oldest son's friend even walked in the house one day and said "Nice kicks mom!" You know when 19 year olds compliment you, that you still got it, lol.


This soft varsity sporty tee from Treasure and Bond at Nordstrom in an ever pretty blushy shade is so comfy. I knotted it in the front for a more feminine look.

Buy a pair HERE, Lot's of colors.


I'm here to say sweet friends, don't let the varsity blues get you down on this Monday morning, instead, THINK PINK! I think pink makes most of a smile.


Remember this Today!
