I love spring and summer for the simple fact that Strawberries are in season...
which means that its strawberry shortcake time!
This is my version...hope you like it.
What you'll need:
- Store made shortcake minis
- Fresh Strawberries (you can use frozen during the winter season, but fresh is always best)
- Reddi-Whip fat free whip cream
- Fruit Dip - Recipe at bottom
Follow the pictures!!
Take one shortcake mini and place on a plate.
Here's another view for you lol
In a bowl slice fresh berries and sprinkle with a tablespoon of splenda and mash with a fork or a pastry cutter.
Then add a heaping spoonful (or two :) on top of the mini shortcake.
drizzle some of my fruit dip on top of the strawberries. I like adding this because its a nice tangy/tartness to contrast with the sweetness of the berries. The recipe for my fruit dip is below.
Drizzle it all over the berries. Sorry the picture quality doesn't show how pretty it really looks in person. Someday I hope to have a nicer camera for blogging.
Spray? some whip cream on top and you are ready to eat and enjoy. The flavors work beautifully together...in my opinion anyways. :D
Fruit Dip Recipe -
(Found off internet a billion years ago...)
- 1 package of room temperature cream cheese (low-fat so you can stay somewhat healthy)
- 1 orange
- 1 jar of marshmallow fluff
Mix marshmallow fluff and cream cheese together with a blender until somewhat creamy.
Squeeze the juice from the orange in and mix until smooth.
Be careful though!!! Don't add too much juice or it will become runny.
You want it kind of thick so it will stick to whatever fruit you dip in it.
Then for extra zing...zest some of the orange peel into it.
Makes an excellent fruit dip for Strawberries, Kiwi, Mango, grapes, etc. etc. etc
