I love desserts! There I said it..I love sweets. Now that we have that out there, I am always looking for healthier recipes to make a sweet treat. As a nutritionist I strongly believe you shouldn’t restrict any food group, but some food groups should be eaten less than others. Sweets are one of the food groups that should be eaten conservatively. I have created an easy sweet treat that the whole family can enjoy preparing and eating. Meet my strawberry shortcake made via a coffee mug. The best part of this recipe is that it can be made one serving at a time in only a few minutes. OH WAIT.. the better news it that one serving of the strawberry shortcake is less than 150 calories!!
Here is a picture of the finished product. Now if you are wondering how to make this delicious sweet treat keep reading.
3 tbsp cake mixture (see below for instructions on cake mixture)
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp cool whip
