It’s strawberry season again here in Phoenix. Everywhere I turn there are great bargains to be had on strawberries. This strawberry cream cake is one I made last year but never got around to posting. It’s a winner in my book. Easy and delicious, I think I prefer it to strawberry shortcake.
I used cake mix to keep this skinny strawberry cream cake quick and easy, but when I make it next time I will substitute this skinny buttermilk cake, my new go-to from scratch vanilla cake, which bakes up moist and delicious and is almost as easy as one from the box.
I used real whipped cream in this skinny strawberry cream cake too. Truwhip (natural whipped topping) is another alternative, but when I calculated the PointsPlus it came out the same using it as the whipped cream, so I opted for the real thing since I think it tastes better and I had some heavy cream in fridge ready and waiting.
By keeping the servings small you can enjoy a slice of this skinny strawberry cream cake for 193 calories and 5 PointsPlus. The more I focus on slowing down and really savoring my sweet indulgences, the more I realize a little serving of dessert is all my body really wants.
