"Fast and easy, but very rich and delicious.
Pretty in a clear glass trifle dish or individual parfait glasses." — PYEWACKET56

We took dinner to some friends one night and this was our dessert. Three of us finished it in one night! Heavenly and lush. Full of flavor and bursting with fresh fruit! I added a splash of orange juice to the berries while they soaked. So good! I want more now! And it takes just a few minutes to prepare!
I've now made this three times and it's becoming a favorite! Made it with sugar free angel food cake and Cool Whip today! Yum!
Wonderful! Five minutes to make (not counting letting the berries sit), beautiful presentation, and absolutely delicious. Made this for a family dinner. There were six of us and everyone had seconds...and most had thirds...it was just about gone. I used a variety of berries - strawberries, blackberries and raspberries (because my teenager ate the strawberries intended for the top prior to the dinner.) I changed a few things to reduce the calories even further. I used Splenda/brown sugar instead of white sugar (I would not do that for the berries on the top, though, since the brown color is obviously not as pretty.) Sugar-free angel food cake was perfect. I am sure I could sub sugar-free/fat free vanilla pudding for the mascarpone, but it *really* makes the texture and the taste special, so I left it in.
