Recipe: Strawberry Shortcake

I love a quick and easy recipe. Especially if it's dessert!

I know Strawberry Shortcake is already an easy dessert to throw together for any picnic, holiday, or get together. When I decided to make it, I wanted to make it a little "better for you" if you will. Simply changing out a few ingredients for a little "healthier" options can cut quite a few calories and still allow you to enjoy a wonderful refreshing dessert. 

"Better for You" Strawberry Shortcake

1 pint fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons Truvia 
1/3 cup water
1 angel food cake (mine is store bought)
Cool whip (optional)

Wash your strawberries and cut into small bite size pieces into a bowl. After berries have all been cut up, sprinkle Truvia over them. Pour in the water, toss and cover. Refrigerate for at least an hour. 

When ready, cut a slice of angel food cake, put strawberries and juice over cake. Enjoy. If you're feeling a little naughty add a dollop of cool whip.

It's that easy! Enjoy!
