  • Assemble the dish:


To make sure this dessert turns out just right, use fresh and ripe fruits and berries. They should be firm and plump with vibrant colours. Check for signs of bruising and discolouration when picking them. Cut it into bite-sized pieces before assembling the trifle, making it easier to layer and eat.

For apples, we suggest you go with firm varieties like Granny Smith that hold up well when combined with other ingredients and provide a nice balance of sweetness and tartness. When adding orange juice to the mix, be careful not to add too much, as it can make the other ingredients too wet and change the texture of the salad.

If you want to save time, you can prepare the individual elements in advance and keep them covered in the fridge. Assemble the fruit salad with cream and orange juice right before serving for the best result. This way, the fruits will retain their flavour and texture, and the cream will still be smooth and velvety.

If you are using freshly squeezed orange juice rather than store-bought, it will bring an even more intense and authentic orange flavour to the fruit salad with cream.
