Gluten Free Coconut Lemon Trifle

This recipe for a Gluten Free Coconut Lemon Trifle is three-fold.

It involves Coconut Whipped Cream, Schar's Lemon Wafers, and a Coconut Custard.  I layered them each one on top of the other, making for a gorgeous dessert that looks super fancy! It can be our little secret just how simple it was to throw together a fabulous gluten free coconut dessert! It really couldn't be easier and I will take you step by step below. With hardly any time at all, you'll have added another tasty dessert to your arsenal. And this one is gluten free coconut based as well!

 I'd use this for any dinner party you might have this spring or summer! The flavors of lemon and coconut were simply made for each other! This recipe is made possible by Schar lemon wafers!  I'm obsessed with them and you should be too!!  To check out their wafers  and many more amazing products go to Schar's website  by clicking HERE!
