Got this from a friend, and it is great! It is lower in calories, but definately not in taste!!!

4 oz
cream cheese
2 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp
orange zest
1 Tbsp
orange juice, fresh
2 c
thawed cool whip free or cool whip lite
prepared angel food cake (10 in) cut in half horizontally. you can make the angel food cake or use a store bought one.

Directions Step-By-Step

Chop enough strawberries to measure 2 cups. Refrigerate remaining whole berries for later use.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, zest and juice in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add COOL WHIP; beat on low speed just until blended. Gently stir in chopped berries. Spread about 2/3 of the Cool Whip mixture onto bottom half of cake. Cover with top of cake and remaining Cool Whip mixture.
Refrigerate for 1 hour. Arrange remaining berries on top of cake before serving.
I have also used blueberries for this recipe also, and it was equally delisious!

Yeah Mary ann, the cake is better if it is homemade (or even a box mix), but I totally agree, the filling is wonderful! Glad you liked it.

The cake was good. Well not so much the cake. I purchased it from a deli and it left a lot to be desired. The filling was out-of-this-world. Grandson just loved it. Whole family enjoyed.
