Recipe by SharleneW

I got this recipe from "The Mike and Matty Show" -- does anyone remember it (vintage 1994). It is very easy and very yummy! Prep time includes chilling time.

I loved the idea of mixing the whipped cream with lemon wonderfully refreshing! I used blueberries, strawberries, kiwi and bananas for the fruit. At Wal-Mart, I found some "mini" trifle bowls for $1.79 each, so each of my six guests had their own trifle bowl!!! It was wonderful. Thanks for the summer recipe!
