Happy Canada Day! What better way to kick of July than to celebrate our nation, the sunshine, the last day of school (yesterday), and that strawberry season is in full force! Each year at the end of the school year, our family goes on a camping trip where we celebrate the season with a Strawberry Shortcake social.
I loooove fresh strawberries and crave shortcake all year long. To keep myself from over indulging (because I could eat this every meal while berries are in season), I’ve came up with a this easy Weight Watchers Strawberry Shortcake Recipe. Typically most light dessert recipes include Angel Food Cake, but I find the strawberry juice makes it too soggy. This tea biscuit recipe is the perfect density for the juicy berries and to take on the road camping, they stay fresh for a few days and the berries can be sliced and mixed just before serving.
Weight Watcher Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 3 tsp. sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup Sliced Strawberries mixed with 1 package of Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (per serving)
- 2 tbsp. of Light Cool Whip Topping (per serving)
- Mix first 5 ingredients; slowly add milk until mixture comes together. Scoop mixture (using a medium size scoop, or tablespoon) onto a parchment lined baking pan. To keep biscuits at 2 points each, recipe should yield 16 small biscuits.
- Slice biscuit in half, place one half in the bottom of the bowl, top with strawberries and Cool Whip, place second half on top.
When hosting a strawberry shortcake social from a campground picnic table usually means there isn’t a lot of fuss when it comes to the decorations and serving-ware. Paper bowls and plastic spoons generally come into play, but keeping with the Canada Day red and white theme I picked up these Red RENOVA paper towels . I love using paper towels for picnicking rather thank napkins. An attractive roll is much easier to manage than napkins that fly away with the slightest breeze, could the vibrant red be any more perfect for this holiday?
