This is so amazing and so simple to make! This month as an ambassador for Fresh From Florida we were given Florida Blueberries to talk about. I can tell you the blueberries grown here are just delicious and I am looking forward to going to pick them soon. I went twice last year and just used up my last bag I had in the freezer a few weeks ago. I’m so glad to see the fresh ones start to come into the grocery stores right now.

As sad as I am to see Strawberry season start to come to an end, I look forward to these blueberries. They are so sweet and burst with just picked flavor and they are so good for you.

I went to a farm outside of Zephyr Hills where they grow them in containers so that they are at the right level for picking, no bending down. As I get older it is the little things you learn to appreciate. It only took about 30 minutes to pick a bucket full, which was about 10 lbs.

Blueberry Farm

You won’t believe how sweet these blueberries are, I had a few right from the bush and they were just like eating candy. Don’t you love the combination of the blueberries and the palm trees?

I decided to make for you today an Angel Food Cake Blueberry Trifle. I made an Angel Food Cake from a box but you can buy one too or make it from scratch if you are that ambitious. If you buy a bar Angel Food Cake from the store, get 2 if you want your trifle the size of this one. The angel food cake has a cream cheese mixture mixed in with it and then layers of a fresh beautiful cooked blueberry filling. It is topped with whipped cream. It is good right away but gets better if allowed to set refrigerated at least 4 hours, overnight is even better.

    I love trifle! I always have it with strawberries, but I think I better make it with blueberries next time! It looks so amazing!

      I love my trifle bowl. It is the perfect size. I used to have a bigger one and rarely used it. Unless you are going to feed 20 people those big ones will just collect dust in your cupboard if your house is like mine. I love how they look too in them. Wish you were closer, I’d share!

    this looks divine! I didn’t know we grew blueberries here in Florida – psyched!

      We sure do, there are several blueberry farms by me but I love the one in Zephyr Hills so I go there. The bonus is one of my friends from high school winters there so we’re going together this year.

    Your trifle looks amazing!! We have a blueberry bush, but the birds always seem to beat me to them! I think about putting netting over it every year but then I don’t do it. Probably because then it won’t look as nice and I’m sure they’re a nice treat for the birds. But we also have wild raspberries growing that I sometimes use for muffins and those are more plentiful…I imagine I could use that as well?

      I don’t see why not. I think what makes this really good is the cheesecake mixture that coats the angel food so any fruit would work. I would cook whichever one you choose so it is like a filling.

    Dear Mary Ellen, this looks beautiful…so light and delicious. This is a wonderful spring dessert. I love berry trifles. xo, Catherine

      Yes you can, if you buy the bar ones I’d buy 2 to fill this dish. I just used a boxed angel food cake mix and it was really good that way.
