I am loving Spring. It is finally here and I can’t get enough of it! Yesterday I went on a long run and it was actually HOT! It felt really good though, I just have to remember my sunscreen next time:) Oh, and Happy Earth Day! Do something extra special to save the environment today!
I have been finding some great sales on berries, too good to pass up. I love eating them on my cereal or just plain for a healthy snack. I bought way too many so I decided to celebrate Spring with a Berry Trifle.
I love trifles, they are easy, pretty, and the variations are endless. This time I went with strawberries, blackberries, and I made a lemon mousse. I also added in a few pieces of my lemon angel food cupcakes. I just tore them into chunks and placed them in between the berries and mousse.
It was really hard to eat this trifle, not because it didn’t look good, but because it looked TOO good. I didn’t want to mess it up, but eventually I gave in and I am glad I did. The trifle was delightful. The lemon mousse is very light and refreshing. You really don’t need the angel food cake, but why not? It made the trifle extra special. If you have an abundance of berries, try a berry trifle. Trust me, it will make your day!
