Triple Berry Mascarpone Trifle

Triple Berry Mascarpone Trifle

Sometimes it’s nice to have a dessert option that isn’t so heavy and overly sweet but that can still satisfy your sweet tooth. This Triple Berry Mascarpone Trifle is a light and refreshing end to your meal. The mascarpone cheese folded into the fresh whipped cream adds richness and an extra depth of flavor. A variety of berries layered between the mascarpone whipped cream are simply decadent. Oh, and did I tell you that it’s sweetened with maple syrup? Yup, you can still indulge without the sugar. =)
