Bring on the strawberries!

Have you ever seen those dessert shells they always have in the produce section of the grocery store? Well i did, and that's where the story starts. talking to my cousin Steph this week she mentioned strawberry shortcake and that triggered the severe craving for it. Eating healthy is fine and well, until you hit a craving for something like strawberry shortcake...

So take at the grocery store i decided i was going to give it a whirl with the dessert shells. I picked them and looked at the Nutrtition label, and umm HELLO! 120 calories and 1 gram of fat. Why thank you to the makers of these little cake of heaven!.

I came home and grabbed my cutting board, knife and bowl and sliced up the strawberries ( i made all of the strawberries for almost 2 cups), then adding 1 tablespoon of sugar to let them sit in (about 2 hours), creating the most delish syrup-y goodness. I placed them in the shells and topped with fat free cool whip.

they were exactly what i need to kick that shortcake habit.

a total of 140 calories and 2 grams of fat and 3 grams of fiber and 2 WW Points. these will be a staple this summer :)
