Stock up on two pounds of berries at your local farmer's market (or make a visit to the frozen berry aisle at the grocery store when the fresh stuff is nowhere to be found). This Mixed Berry and Angel Food Trifle recipe mixes heaps of berries with fluffy angel food cake.

The blogger behind this Frozen Yogurt Fruit Bark says she makes this recipe once or twice a week. And it's easy to see why: It takes no time at all (save for a couple of hours in the freezer) and is a tasty way to get your fill of yogurt and naturally sweet fruit. PSA for 9-to-5ers: Don't try packing it for the office or you'll end up with a melty mess in your bag. Ick! (Speaking of yogurt desserts; these smoothie popsicles are a great way to merge healthy breakfast with smart, sweet dessert.)
