A fluffy cream cheese mixture layered with juicy berries, dressed up in the colours of the American flag. Turn this recipe into the national anthem this year, guests of all ages will sing your praises."

Thank you for the 4th of July inspiration!

I'm trying hard to imagine this in my head, Jan. Basically, it is cheese, cream and fruit. No jelly or cake or sherry. Does it not taste "fatty" with all the cream? Must be rich in calories, I guess.

I'll give it a try.

God bless.

Hello Victor, and thanks for your comments and thoughts.

This lovely recipe does differ from the more usual trifle … because it is the LCHF version. This means lower in carbs and higher in healthy fats, and most say it tastes very good!

Diet Doctor site (where the recipe originates) explains this:
"A low-carb diet is low in carbohydrates, primarily found in sugary foods, pasta and bread. Instead, you eat real foods including protein, natural fats and vegetables.

Studies show that low-carb diets result in weight loss and improved health markers, and just about everyone knows someone who has successfully tried it. There’s not even any need to count calories or use special products. So why is it still controversial?

Learn more about low carb and how to use it for your personal goals here."

Happy Wednesday to you

All the best Jan
