    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!

    Easy Very Berry Trifle

    Makes 12 servings.

    Prep Time: 25 minutes

    Refrigerate: 2 hours

    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
    1/4 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.
