  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped

  1. Beat cream cheese, vanilla extract, and sweetened condensed milk with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.
  2. Carefully fold in whipped cream until well blended. Chill before making trifles.
  3. Brown coconut in skillet over medium to medium-low heat, stirring until toasted – about 7-8 minutes.
