Easy dessert idea: Berrylicious Lemon Delight

This week, I'm thrilled to introduce you to one of my all-time favorite desserts: the oh-so-heavenly Berrylicious Lemon Delight. Bursting with vibrant flavors and refreshingly light, this delightful treat is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet cravings without the fuss. Whether you're hosting a dinner party or simply treating yourself to a special indulgence, this dessert is sure to impress. What You Will Need:

  • 2 oz cream cheese (softened, at room temperature)

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tbsp honey, agave, or sugar

  • Zest and juice from 1/2 lemon

  • Berries/fruits of your choice

  • Shortbread cookies and granola (optional)

  • Optional toppings/garnishes (chopped nuts, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, rolled chocolate wafers, mint leaves)

How To Prepare:


  • Zest one lemon and juice half of it. Wash, dry, and cut the berries/fruits into bite-sized pieces. If using cookies, crumble them, and chop any nuts if using.


How To Make It:


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese with the lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey/sugar. Beat all ingredients until smooth and creamy, then set aside.

  2. In a separate chilled glass or metal bowl, whisk the heavy cream with an electric mixer until frothy. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until soft peaks form.

  3. Gently fold the stiffened whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture using a spatula. Taste and adjust the sweetness or tanginess by adding more sugar or lemon juice, according to your preference.

  4. If using crumbled cookies, start by layering them at the bottom of your serving glasses. Add a layer of the lemon cream mixture, followed by a layer of berries/fruits. Repeat the layers of lemon cream and berries/fruits until the glasses are filled, adding granola if desired. Garnish with your favorite toppings and chill until ready to serve.
