Lime Berry Mousse Trifle with Angel Food Cake

This is probably one of my favorite refreshing summer time recipes.  I’d love to say I dreamed this up myself, but this is a Pampered Chef recipe that I’ve modified over the years.

This takes a few minutes to assemble, but I promise it’s worth it!

  • 12 oz Angel Food Cake, cubed
  • 3 cups of assorted berries – rinsed
    • Blue berries, black berries, strawberries, raspberries – I mix them up
  • 5- 6 Limes
  • 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk (Fat Free)
  • 16 oz Whipped Topping thawed
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened (1/3 less fat)
  • 1 pint of Lime Sherbet softened

Thinly slice 2 limes.  Zest the other 3-4.  Cut those 3-4 limes in half and juice them; set that aside.

Cut the Angel Food Cake into chunks; set aside.  Whisk the sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, lime juice and about 1 tablespoon of the lime zest together.  Fold in the Whipped Topping; set the Mousse aside.  Save a few berries and lime zest for the garnish. Slice Strawberries and mix all the berries together; set aside.

Begin placing your layers in the trifle bowl.

  1. Angel Food Cake
  2. Lime Sherbet, spread evenly
  3. Berries
  4. Mousse, spread evenly

Place Limes around the outside of the trifle dish ~ before you add the mousse, the mousse seems to help the limes stand up.

Repeat layers:

  • Angel Food Cake
  • Lime Sherbet, spread evenly
  • Berries
  • Mousse, spread evenly

Sprinkle the top with lime zest and garnish with berries or whipped topping.

This is best if assembled the day you’re going to eat it.  You can cut the cake, slice berries and mix the mousse, just don’t put it together until the day you’re going to enjoy it.  Keep refrigerated!

This is so loved at my house that I’ve made it two different times this week for two different events!  Being a calorie counter, I must mention this – If you’re counting calories, dodge the mousse, that’s where it’s at…..
