HG's Super-Duper Strawberry Shortcake
HG's Super-Duper Strawberry Shortcake

Short 'n Sweet!
Strawberries + pound cake + ice cream = good times. Add a little whipped cream and strawberry sauce, and you have a head-explodingly-good dessert. Check it out (and no, your cranium will not actually blow up... so no worries, people).

Ingredients:
1 shortcake dessert shell (like a Hostess Shortcake Dessert Cup)
1/3 cup sliced strawberries
1/3 cup Breyers Fat Free, Creamy Vanilla
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1 tbsp. Smucker's Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves

Directions:
Mix the preserves with 1/2 tbsp. of hot water to make a strawberry sauce, and then set aside. Place about one-third of the sliced strawberries in the center of the shortcake. Top with the ice cream. Then, place another third of the strawberries on top of the ice cream (or if you want to be all fancy, press them into the ice cream). Drizzle the strawberry syrup over the top. Then squirt your dessert with the Reddi-wip, and top with the remaining strawberries (again, feel free to be fancy and place them prettily around the whipped topping). Enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING

Berry Disappointing
Despite its adorable name and the fact that it's made with actual fruit, strawberry shortcake is far from a picture-perfect dessert. It's pretty much a slab of buttery cake or a doughy biscuit topped with sugary strawberries, oodles of whipped cream, and usually some sort of strawberry syrup. And there's often ice cream involved (AAHHHH!). A single serving of the stuff will set you back an average of over 560 calories and 25 fat grams. Oy! You can get the same berry-licious satisfaction from chewing on our super-easy swap! So just grab a few ingredients and throw together HG's Super-Duper Strawberry Shortcake. The only thing it's short on is fatty calories.
