      Today I share with you a little secret.  Prior to this recipe, I have never made a trifle.

      Let me get even more real.  Prior to this recipe I had never even eaten a trifle.  (what was wrong with me?!?)



      I was able to try out an amazing recipe, and boy am I glad I did.  The combination of rich angel food cake and fresh berries and the most awesome whipped topping known to man has changed me.

      I now heart trifles.

      But let me stop jabbering and share this delectable recipe with you!

      • 2 cups halved or sliced strawberries
      • 2 cups blueberries
      • 1 cup raspberries
      • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar divided
      • 3 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract divided
      • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
      • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Orange Extract
      • 1/4 cup sour cream
      • 4 cups angel food cake cubes
      1. Toss berries, 1/4 cup of the sugar and 2 teaspoons of the vanilla in large bowl. Set aside. Beat cream, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and orange extract in large bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gently stir in sour cream.
      2. Layer 2 cups angel food cake cubes, and 1/2 each of the berry mixture and whipped cream mixture in 2-quart glass serving bowl. Repeat layers. Cover.
      3. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until ready to serve. Garnish with additional berries, if desired

      What is the best thing about this Very Berry Trifle?  That orange infused whipped topping.  Seriously, I would never have thought of using  Orange Extract, but it is nothing short of scrumptious.  I am now trying to incorporate that whipped delight into everything I make!!

    • Can the sour cream be substituted with plain Greek yogurt possibly?

    • I don’t see why not. Yogurt Has been used instead of sour cream for many receipes.

    • Thank you. The recipes look great. Yes I have used orange extract in whipped cream and it is awesome.
