My wonderful friend (and BFF 4-eva) Kelly brought me a pint of strawberries. Isn’t she the best? I didn’t want to just eat the strawberries by themselves so I decided to make Strawberry Shortcake but I wanted to put my own healthified spin on it. My Strawberry Shortcake Puffs recipe has only 175 calories. For a dessert, that’s pretty sweet (ha!).
This recipe is super easy to make and is completely delicious. At 9 servings, you’ll be able to feed an army, but what’s even better is that you can refrigerate any leftovers separately and have a tasty dessert the next day too!
You don’t have to whisk the whipped topping but if you want a creamier consistency, I highly recommend whisking it. If you’re hungry and can’t wait to eat it, then just plop it on top right out of the container. I also recommend refrigerating the strawberry and sugar mixture for about an hour for extra yumminess.
You may substitute regular whipped topping but it will increase fat and calories. Also, if you prefer to make homemade sweetened whipped cream, beat 1-1/2 cups heavy cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form.
