Trifle is one of my favorite summer desserts – so simple, so light, so creamy, so fruity, ... so delicious! This piña colada trifle implements the flavors of piña colada -- pineapple curd, coconut granola, coconut whipped topping, and cherries, with bananas and lemon pound cake added for extra sunny fruitiness.
It is presumed that you already have a cake on hand, perhaps a failed experiment? If you don't have a cake (or muffins), just omit it and go with the granola. For the whipped topping, use your favorite recipe, or make a simple one with coconut cream (not cream of coconut), sugar, and lemon juice.
As long as you have the cake, granola, and whipped topping on hand, this trifle is easy to whip up when dessert time comes. Enjoy your super simple, super delicious, super summery, super fruity dessert!
