Easy Pumpkin Vanilla Cheesecake Mini Trifles

These pumpkin Vanilla Cheesecake Trifles are the perfect dessert for the fall. If you are looking for a easy to make fall dessert, this is the one!

Trifles are so easy to make and I love them because you can do a lot with the layers. You can switch up the flavors, colors and ingredients depending on what you have in your kitchen. I had all of these ingredients in my pantry and fridge so I thought it would be fun to make this for dessert one night.

Plus it’s pumpkin season! I think pumpkin is an underrated dessert flavor. I love to have pumpkin desserts in the fall and these are so easy to make. They give the perfect amount of sweetness without being too rich or filling.

A lot of trifles you see out there call for cool whip, but this uses cream cheese! I’m sure it would be great with cool whip but it’s great just the way it is.

With everything going on, it’s so much easier to have individual servings. These are great for Thanksgiving, potlucks or any time you want to have a sweet treat.

If you don’t have any individual cups, you can always grab some from the dollar store! You can use pumpkin pie filling for this or puree your own.

These are crazy simple and only take about 20 minutes to make, start to finish. You could have them made up in advance, ready to eat when you want dessert.  So good and so yummy! Perfect for fall!  

Plus it takes out the stress of making a whole pie.  Not that making a pie is an awful ordeal or anything.  Just one more thing to do on a busy day.

Ingredients needed for these Pumpkin Vanilla Cheesecake Trifles

1 can pumpkin puree
1 – 8 oz block cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 – 5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
6 graham crackers; crushed
1 tablespoon of cinnamon; for topping
whipped topping for topping

They are so delicious and easy to make. I love pumpkin everything so this was easy to whip up.  It could not be an easier treat, just grab a can of pumpkin pie filling and mix it with some sugar.

I used my favorite Reddi-wip for these but you can add your own whipped cream if you prefer. Pumpkin and Vanilla is one of my favorite flavor combinations.  It transports you to warm comfort of a fall evening.  

I love how the red and orange color makes it festive for fall!  So bright and cheerful.  This is definitely my favorite pumpkin treat so far this year!  

Great for individual servings. The family will love these fall treats. Great to make with kids too! You can have them do a layer each like I did.  

You can make a bigger batch and add if you want. It really depends on how many people you have over for dessert. You can even serve these in shot glasses for a little spooky touch or to take to a potluck!
