Ingredients
  • 2 pounds strawberries
  • 1 orange
  • 1 (11 oz) angel food loaf
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 10 (9 oz) clear plastic cups
  • Mint leaves for garnish optional
Instructions
  1. STRAWBERRIES: Wash and cut your strawberries into quarters (reserve a few strawberries to cut in half for garnish if desired). Place in a medium sized bowl. Zest the orange and reserve for later, you will need about 1 1/2 teaspoons of zest. Juice the orange and add to the strawberries. Gently toss the strawberries and orange juice, set aside.
  2. WHIPPED CREAM: In a large bowl whip the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla together just until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the reserved 1 1/2 teaspoons of orange zest, set aside. Cube the angel food in to small bite sized pieces.
  3. ASSEMBLY: First gently toss the strawberries in the juice one more time. Now, place a small amount of angel food in the bottom of a cup. Top with a few strawberries (don't be afraid to get some of the orange juice in there as well) then whipped cream. Repeat layers one more time. Repeat for remaining cups. Top with a strawberry half and mint leaf if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
