Total Time:

8 servings

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons (1 envelope) powdered gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1 (15-ounce) container low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 orange, zest finely grated
  • 1 store-bought angel food bundt cake
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish
  • Pour 1/2 cup of the orange juice into a small pot and heat over medium flame until hot; remove from heat. Sprinkle the gelatin on top of the hot orange juice, give it a stir, and let stand for 5 minutes to soften.

  • Combine the yogurt, ricotta, vanilla, brown sugar, orange zest, and the gelatin mixture in a food processor and process until smooth, thick, and custard-like.

  • Put the angel food cake in a trifle bowl and push it down so it sits on the bottom. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of orange juice over the cake to moisten. Spoon the yogurt custard over the cake to cover. Chill in the refrigerator to set up.

  • To make the blueberry compote: Combine the blueberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a pot over medium heat. Stir gently until the berries breakdown and release their natural juice; the consistency should remain a bit chunky. Set aside to cool.

  • Top the chilled trifle with the blueberry compote and garnish with fresh mint.
