Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits. And blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. I like trying to find ways to incorporate them into our daily lives. One way is to make fresh fruit desserts like blueberry jar trifle.

Blueberries are a Superfood
Blueberries are highly recommended by doctors and nutritionists because they are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids; these berries are also high in potassium and vitamin C.
They can lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, and they also contain anti-inflammatory properties.
I love making pretty individual desserts. They seem so personal and give the impression that someone took the time to make something special just for you (me).
I like trifles, and they are perfect for individualizing by making them in a jar. Since blueberries are one of the superfoods, they make great trifles.
I like this homemade blueberry jar trifle recipe for family gatherings, parties, or for a special day.
Blueberry Jar Trifle Recipe
- 1 C. sugar
- ½ C. butter softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ C. flour
- 2 tsp. Baking powder
- ½ C. milk
- 2 tsp. Vanilla
- Whipped cream (I used Reddi-Wip)
- 4 pints of fresh blueberries
- 20-24 8 oz. jelly jars
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine the sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, and eggs, and mix well. Stir in flour and baking powder. Mix well.
- Pour batter into greased and lightly floured 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
- Let the cake cool completely by placing it in the fridge for a few hours.
- Once the cake is cool, remove it from the baking dish and cut it into small chunks and set aside. Next, rinse your blueberries.
- Finally, you can begin layering your jars. Start with a layer of cake; next, add a layer of blueberries and then a layer of cream. Repeat. Top with whipped cream and some extra blueberries on top.
- Repeat this process with the other jars.
Makes approximately 20-24 jars. (1) 8 oz. jar = 1 serving.
- You can use a boxed cake mix for this recipe if you don’t want to make the cake from scratch.
- Serve immediately. I don’t recommend storing them because of the whipped cream, although you probably could leave them in the fridge a few hours prior to serving.
- You can make the cake ahead of time and assemble it when you’re ready.
- These glass jars are perfect for parfaits.
I hope you try this blueberry jar trifle… I think you’ll find it a big hit with your guests! Or, just make one of them just for yourself. YOU are worth it!
