Joey and I are in a conundrum, we are trying to slim down for our cruise in August, but we both have horrible sweet tooths. (teeth? - whatever!) Honestly, a meal isn't a meal without dessert, but I can only have so many Skinny Cow icre cream sandwiches no matter how tasty they are.
This recipe is great on so many levels. It's simple, low in calories and just plain delicious! Angel Food cake has virtually no fat, so this is perfect for anyone.
Now is the time for fresh berries. We make this with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries - sometimes all at once. The key is the frozen strawberries. They already have the juices going. We have tried them with real sugar and artificially sweetened to even lower the calories. The real sugar makes a better sauce, but the other was just as good. We usually use two packages of strawberries and then a pint each of whatever other berries are in season. Mix it up and have fun!!! You can also use fresh strawberries, slice them and put sugar on them for about a half hour or so. Also, non-fat topping is delicious so count those calories and go with that!!!
- 2 cups frozen strawberries with sugar, defrosted
- 1/2 pint black berries, raspberries, or blueberries
- 1 store bought angel food cake
- Non-fat or light whipped topping
Mix frozen strawberries that have been defrosted with fresh berries. Cut cake into thick slices. Top sliced cake with juicy berry mixture and whipped topping.
