INGREDIENTS
BLUEBERRY FILLING:
  •  12 ounces frozen blueberries
  •  2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  •  2 tablespoons cornstarch
  •  1/4 cup cold water
  •  Squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 tablespoon)

CAKE AND CREAM:
  •  Baked, cooled and cubed angel food cake (see note)
  •  16 ounces light cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  •  2/3 cup half-and-half or evaporated milk (can use skim evaporated milk)
  •  2/3 cup granulated sugar

WHIPPED CREAM:
  •  1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  •  3 tablespoons powdered sugar

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. For the blueberry filling, in a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, water and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until thickened, 5-7 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  2. For the cake and cream layer, in a blender or with an electric mixer (handheld or stand mixer), whip together the cream cheese, half-and-half or evaporated milk and sugar until smooth and creamy. Transfer the mixture to a bowl if you used a blender. Fold in the angel food cake cubes. Keep in mind (from the note above) that you may not use all the cake cubes, especially if using an angel food cake mix. Add cake cubes until they are all thickly coated with a layer of cream. If making this in advance, it can dry out if there is too much angel food cake added.
