A refreshing lemon filling and fresh blueberries give this sunny dessert sensation plenty of color. "Don't worry about heating up the oven," says Ellen Peden of Houston, Texas. "This doesn't require baking."

"I first made this for my mother-in-love, who needed a dessert for a tea party. It was quick and ever so delicious! It is now a family favorite!!"

"This was fantastic! I made 3 modifications to the recipe. First, I used the entire contents of 3 6oz cartons of lemon yogurt (this made for a couple oz. more that what the recipe called for). I also mixed the fresh blueberries with jar of blueberry preserves. Third, I used fresh whipping cream I sweetened with vanilla extract and confetioner's sugar. I then topped with the fresh blueberries as shown, but grated lemon rind over the top layer. Would and will make this again!"

"Fabulous-this is such a quick recipe and it's so yummy and pretty. Everywhere I take it people rave over it. I often use frozen blueberries for trifle and fresh for the garnish on top when fresh blueberries aren't on sale."

"This is a wonderful summer recipe. I did use real whipping cream with confectioners' sugar instead of CoolWhip. Also, for the lemon yogurt, I used 2 1/2 (6 ounce) cartons of lemon yogurt. I think the recipe should have said 2 cartons (8 ounces each) lemon yogurt, but you can't buy 8 ounce yogurt cartons anymore. At least not in MN."
