This delicious dessert can actually be very low fat if you use the low-fat or fat-free yogurt. The key is to use good greek yogurt-the flavor is amazingly rich, even in low-fat varieties. When you're assembling the dish, don't worry about creating perfect layers-this trifle is even prettier when the ingredients overlap a bit. Add some Blueberries and make it Red, White and Blue for the 4th!Ingredients
1 pound strawberries, sliced
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 store-bought angel-food cake
16-ounce container fat-free or full-fat Greek yogurtMethod
- Place the strawberries and sugar and vanilla in medium size bowl. Stir to distribute. Let sit for about an hour, stirring every now and then, until strawberries begin to macerate and create a rich syrup.
- Tear fist-sized pieces from the angel-food cake and use them to line the bottom of a large, clear bowl or trifle dish. Cover with a layer of Greek yogurt and a layer of strawberries in syrup, filling in any holes in the previous layer. Add another layer of cake and continue building until all the ingredients have been used, ending with a few spoonfuls of yogurt and strawberries as a garnish.
