Serves: 12
½ cup heavy cream (yields 1 cup of whipped cream)
1 teaspoon granulated sugar

¾ cup fresh raspberry sauce ( get the recipe)
2 cups low-fat chocolate pudding (use store-bought or make your own)
¼ cup chocolate-covered almonds, chopped
½ pint fresh raspberries
Equipment: large glass serving bowl or trifle dish

Using a whisk or electric mixer, whip cream with 1 teaspoon of sugar until stiff peaks form– set aside. Place 1/3 of the angel food cake in the bottom of the trifle dish in one even layer. Drizzle with 1/3 of the raspberry sauce, followed by 1/2 of the pudding. Repeat to form the second layer, using the remainder of the pudding (there will only be two layers of pudding). For the last layer, place cake, followed by raspberry sauce and chocolate covered almonds. Top with whipped cream and garnish with fresh raspberries.

*You can find chocolate angel food cake at  various grocery stores and bakeries including Whole Foods Market. You can also try making your own.
