It was time for my monthly networking luncheon today that I host at the hacienda. And being that I’m trying (keyword TRYING) so hard to stay on purpose with the healthy, low cal, low fat diet, I came up with a few healthy choices on the menu. One is my super easy “Sandra-Lee” style Strawberry Shortcake.
I take a store bought angel food cake, some fresh strawberries, fat free cool whip and lemon yogurt. I wash the strawberries, slice them, and toss them with sugar in a bowl and let them set for at least a few hours in the refrigerator to create their own syrup. Then I mix a container of lemon yogurt with the cool whip.
To assemble the cake, slice it in half horizontally. Spread the cream mixture on the bottom layer.
Top with half of the strawberries. Replace the second half on top of the cake and repeat!
and VOILA! A pretty yummy SUPER simple strawberry shortcake ala Irene style!
