  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 cups sliced assorted fruit (such as any berries, grapes, oranges, pineapple, kiwifruit, etc.)
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • ½ cup light ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup vanilla-flavor fat-free Greek yogurt
  • ½ Recipe Vanilla Cake, cut into cubes (see associated recipe, and Tip)


  • Ready In

  1. In a bowl gently stir together champagne and honey until honey is dissolved. Add fruit; toss gently to coat. Cover and let stand 30 minutes. Drain fruit, reserving liquid.
  2. In a food processor combine cream cheese, ricotta cheese and yogurt. Cover and process until smooth.
  3. In a 2½- to 3-quart trifle dish or glass bowl layer one-third of the cake cubes, one-third of the fruit mixture, and one-third of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers twice. Cover and chill up to 8 hours before serving. If desired, drizzle servings with reserved liquid from the fruit.
  • Tip: Wrap the remaining Vanilla Cake layer in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container; cover. Freeze up to 3 months to use for another dessert.
