A Lucky Leaf GIVEAWAY and {No Bake} Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Trifles


You've probably noticed that I've done a number of Lucky Leaf Giveaways and baked the same number of their delicious recipes [e.g., Cherry Cheesecake Pie, Mini Fruit Pies, and Cherry Coconut Squares].  And seemingly, each giveaway has been better the prior!  Lucky me and you, eh? 

But folks.  This is easily my favorite Lucky Leaf recipe to date.  It's absolutely scrumptious, the simplest to put together, and undoubtedly bears the cutest presentation.  See, getting better every time!


So let's get into this summa' time treat because we both know you just want to get to that giveaway, huh?

For this round, Lucky Leaf focused on crowd-pleasing summer time goodies that also gives us bakers some relief from the hot kitchen.  I mean really, who wants to sweat over a scorching stove and/or oven when it's 95+ and humid out?  My hand is firmly down.


Tilly reaaaaaaaally wanted a trifle!

So in addition to three [no bake] summer recipes, Lucky Leaf also sent me a package of four [too cute] mason jars, two mason jar carriers, and three different flavors of Lucky Leaf pie fillings.  And because I couldn't get enough of those dang mason jars, I had to make the [No Bake] Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Trifles.  And I'm telling everyone right now who plans on visiting us any time soon, I will be shoveling these into your face because they are that good.  For the life of me, I still can not figure out why I had never tried these types of adorable desserts before?  Shame on me.  But now [thanks to Lucky Leaf], I have a nice collection of mason jars.  So let the layering begin!

This decadent [yet fluffy and light] dessert includes layers and layers of summery yummyness.  Let's start with a cinnamony almond streusel nestled under a layer of fresh blueberries, topped with a [finger-dipping, addicting] smooth lemon cheesecake filling, and finished with buttery pound cake pieces.  Oh yeah, x2.  Yep, if you're using a mason jar you'll have enough room for double the layers.  And you'll still be coming back for more!


So I know mason jars aren't typically a staple in anyone's house, so it must be your lucky day!  As part of this go-around's giveaway, Lucky Leaf will send a winner a a package containing a Lucky Leaf pie filling, a mason jar, and a recipe card, so you can get going on your [no bake] summer time treats!

All YOU have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite summer time recipe, savory or sweet!  The giveaway will be only be open until July 12th, so leave your comment today!  Then, I'll randomly select a winner and announce the lucky reader soon after!  Easy peasy, if I do say so.  So get commentin'!  .

  1. This looks so good!! I can't wait to try it for a summer party.... my favorite summer go-to recipe is Tequilaberry's salad, sounds weird but it's amazing and perfect for preparing ahead of time and mixing together right before serving.

  7. You're right, these are adorable! I hate to admit, but I've never made dessert in a mason jar yet either, lol; I will one of these days!

    One of our favorite desserts is Strawberry Shortbread Trifle, it makes a lot, it's no-bake and it's perfect for summer time picnics!

  10. My favorite summertime recipe is a zucchini skillet as it is fast, doesn't use the oven and uses lots of fresh produce from the garden. We also love smores in the summertime!
