Add a layer of the cream cheese mixture and then a layer of whipped cream.  Continue this pattern of layering until the ingredients are gone, finishing with whipped cream on top. Lastly, cover the cake and put it in the freezer for 4-24 hours.  You can serve as is or add blackberries, mint or a lemon peel as a garnish.
