For this month's party, I thought I would share a favorite holiday recipe of mine, which is served up in beautiful vintage crystal bowl that I hold dear to my heart.
This recipe also was published in the holiday issue of Shabby Lane Shops magazine
Holiday Berry Trifle
A lovely holiday dessert and good for you too!
2 10oz, packages frozen Strawberries, thawed and strained.
(Save the juice)
1 12oz package frozen raspberries thawed and strained.
(Save the juice)
1 12oz package frozen blueberries or blackberries, thawed and drained
1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ teaspoon Almond extract (optional)
48 oz non fat or low fat Vanilla Greek yogurt (no substitutions)
(Such as Chobani or Fage)
In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together raspberry and strawberry juice with ¾ cup powdered sugar and cornstarch. Boil until thickened. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until cool.
In a medium bowl, whip the cream to stiff. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, almond extract, and remaining sugar. Fold I whipped cream.
Place a double layer of ladyfingers at the bottom of a pretty clear glass bowl, next layer 1/3 of the yogurt mixture. Then spoon half of the berries, with a drizzle of the berry sauce.
Layer another 1/3 of the yogurt mixture, followed by a double layer of ladyfingers, remaining yogurt, and the rest of the berries. Drizzle 3-4 tablespoons of the berry sauce to finish.
Refrigerate 2 hrs before serving.
Variations include frozen mixed berries, vanilla instead of almond extract.
Angel food cake slices or Vanilla wafers instead of the ladyfingers.
