Decadent Berry Trifle

Dessert? Did that ginger just say, dessert?!? Yep, I sure did! My philosophy is, eat clean most of the time and enjoy holidays and special days, GUILT FREE! But when I make something, I go all out. And the 4th of July is no exception. Plus my husband and kids all love this! Plus to get that beautiful red, white and blue look it gives me the perfect excuse to use fresh berries, and LOTS OF THEM! And since everyone asks me for my recipe, why not make a post about it. Check out my favorite and easy to put together Angel Food Cake Trifle!
Festive Berry Trifle

1 full size, pre made, angel food cake (or make your own from scratch, but I just buy the already made version at my local grocery store)
3 pounds  of strawberries (3 small clamshell sizes or 2 large ones and keep half of one for later)
2 pints of blueberries
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 tsp powder sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tsp almond extract


Slice the angel food cake into small bite size pieces, roughly 1 inch cubes.
Quarter 2 pounds of the strawberries and thinly slice 1 pound for decoration along the side of the bowl and the top.
Combine the quartered strawberries and blueberries in a separate bowl to evenly distribute the berries.

Make the cream: 
Using a mixer, whip the heavy whipping cream. When at soft peaks add the powder sugar. 
Once the whipping cream is at stiff peaks add the softened cream cheese and whip together. Slowly drizzle in the sweetened condensed milk. Then add the lemon juice and almond extract and whip to thicken up a little bit. About 3 minutes on medium speed.

Spread 1/3 little bit of the cream on the bottom of your glass trifle bowl. 
Evenly top with 1/3 of the angel food cake. 
Evenly top the angel food cake with 1/3 of the berries, using slices around the edge to make it decorative. 
Repeat pattern of cream, cake, berries 2 more times or however you want to layer it. The picture above I swapped the final layer to be the cake, cream, and berries for decoration.
Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden the cream, serve and enjoy!
