  • 2 loaf pan size Angel Food Cakes (store purchase, box mix, or homemade) OR 3 – 8 ½” loaf pan size cakes or one whole bundt pan size cake 
  • 2 cups of full-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 carton of Non-Dairy Whipped Topping (coconut)
  • 2 quarts of fresh strawberries halved and divided
  • 2 quarts of fresh blueberries divided
  • Zest and Juice of one large Lemon
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • ½ t almond extract divided ¼ and ¼ tsp. 

Zest the lemon and set the zest aside.

Mix together the lemon juice and sugar and ¼ t almond extract

Allow this mixture to sit while you complete the other steps.  We need the lemon juice to dissolve the sugar, creating a syrup. 

Tear or cut the cake into 1” cubes, if cutting, use a serrated edges knife so as not to smash it,  Divide into ⅓’s.

Wash and dry Strawberries and Blueberries.  

Cut Strawberries in half. 

In a large bowl, mix the Greek Yogurt and Whipped Topping along with the ¼ t. Of almond extract and the lemon zest.  Divide into ⅓’s. 

Assemble the dessert.  

Place ⅓ of the cake around the bottom of a large round bowl.  Clear is nice but not necessary. 

Brush the cake with ⅓ of the lemon and sugar mix. 

Dollop ⅓ of the Greek Yogurt mixture onto the cake pieces, smoothing out to reach the sides of your bowl.  

Add strawberries around the sides and fill in the middle. 

Add ⅓ of the cake to cover the strawberries. 

Brush with ⅓ of syrup

Add Yogurt mixture and smooth

Add blueberries to cover this layer.

Top with the remaining cake, then syrup, and yogurt, and decorate the top in any way you please!  A star, flag, mixed berries, here are some ideas for the top of your fun and delicious dessert. 

Tip:  make additional syrup to glaze fruit on the top for some shine and flavor.
