4 oz. cream cheese

1 c. vanilla yogurt

1 Tbsp. lemon zest

1 c. fresh blueberries

2 c. fresh strawberries

4 slices angel food cake

4 pint sized wide-mouth mason jars


Use fork to break up cream cheese in medium bowl. Add yogurt and lemon zest. Using mixer, beat until smooth and creamy. Cube angel food cake into bite-sized pieces. Divide 1/2  of cake pieces between 4 mason jars. Top cake pieces with 1/8 of the strawberries and blueberries into each jar. Spoon 1 to 1½ tbsp. of cream mixture over each to cover the berries. Top with remaining cake pieces, then berries, saving a few berries for garnish. Spoon remaining cream mixture on top and garnish with remaining berries. (Modify fruit combination to your liking, peaches, blackberries, and raspberries are also delicious. Here, blueberries and strawberries are used for patriotic flair.)
