These strawberry shortcake shooters are a great dessert for a summer time get together! They are cute, tasty and nobody will even know they are only 1 Freestyle point each.

I love serving desserts in these little dessert cups. They are a great way to control portion size with Weight Watchers. I like them so much I used them for my wedding:
We had 5 different layers of dessert shooters. They were not Weight Watchers friendly, but they were delicious! I actually made these (with the help of my wonderful Mother-in-law) the day before the wedding. Who is crazy enough to do that? Me!!
I don’t regret it though, hard work pays off. I sampled a couple different flavors. 🙂
You don’t really need a recipe for these strawberry shortcake shooters. You just need angel food cake, strawberries and fat free whipped cream. I made 6 shooters which equaled 1 Freestyle point each.
It is very important that you calculate your points with your ingredients. This goes for any recipe. I used these mini dessert cups which were 3 oz. each. I used one piece of angel food cake for all 6 desserts. I just broke it up and evenly divided it into the mini dessert cups.
Next I used my handy dandy strawberry slicer to cut up a couple of strawberries. These are the strawberries going on top of the angel food cake so I wanted them smaller. I cut them in the strawberry slicer two times rotating the strawberry between cuts.
If I am not serving them immediately I cover them and pop them in the refrigerator at this point. There is nothing wrong with letting some of that strawberry juice soak into the angel food cake!
When I am ready to serve the dessert I put a couple of strawberries through the strawberry slicer, these I just cut one time. I add the whipped cream to the dessert cup and put a strawberry slice on top. That’s it!
Here are a few of the things I used for this dessert:
Strawberry Shortcake Shooters
Yield: 6 (Or as many as you would like to make. 1 Freestyle point per shooter)
- 1 slice of angel food cake
- 5-6 strawberries
- Fat free Reddi Wip
- Cut the slice of cake into smaller pieces and evenly divide it among the 6 dessert shooters.
- Chop 4 strawberries and divide them among the dessert shooters, placing them onto the angel food cake.
- Spray 1-2 tablespoons of fat free Reddi Wip into each dessert shooter, then top with a slice of strawberry.
