Strawberry Cream Cheese Shortcake

This last weekend while I was visiting my grandma’s we made strawberry shortcakes with the last of the Louisiana strawberries. If you’re looking for a quick, healthy, delicious dessert this summer – this is for you.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 c of sugar
  • package of shortcake
Whipped Cream
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1-½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream

I always cut the strawberries a couple of hours ahead of time sprinkle some sugar and stick it in the fridge. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla till smooth. Gradually add heavy cream and beat until light and fluffy. (If you’re looking to stay healthy just stick with cool whip.) Stack the shortcake, strawberries and whipped cream and enjoy!

If you’re looking for a decadent, but light dessert this is it!
