Angel Food Surprise

Recipe: 1 – can sweetened condensed milk,

1/4 cup of lemon juice,

1 – 8 oz container of cool whip,

1 – plain angel food cake,

strawberries, bananas and kiwi fruit.

Combine sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice and stir till thickened. Place 1/2 of angel food cake torn in pieces n bottom of a glass bowl. Top with half of the sweetened condensed milk mixture. Arrange some of the strawberries, bananas and kiwi over mixture. Repeat layers ending with strawberries and kiwi fruit placed decoratively on top. I also dip the bananas in lemon juice before placing them in the dessert mix so they won’t get brown. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
