Cheesecake Berry Trifle

Cheesecake Berry Trifle

I made this delightfully simple dessert for Easter. It requires no cooking or baking, just some assembling of ingredients, some whisking and putting it all together. It is one of the fastest desserts I have ever made and tastes amazing. It also feels luxuriously sinful and special. The recipe was adapted from Australian Womens Weekly’s Cheesecakes cookbook. I substituted all full-fat ingredients with all light ingredients and it turned out just perfect. I made 6 huge glasses of this beautiful dessert and had enough ingredients left over to make 4 baby glasses for the kids. Everyone was happy!
