Strawberry Cream Cheese Filled Angel-Food Cake

Pin It
Hey y'all. I'm back for post #2 today with a Super Simple, Quick and Easy recipe that will be great for tomorrow's holiday picnics or really anytime. It's complete with pictures.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Filled Angel-Food Cake (Sounds pretty decadent and points heavy, huh? Nope!) This is a No-Bake, No-Added Sugar, Fat-Free Recipe. Woo-Hoo!!!! And it's Yummy too! ;)

Look at all of that ooey, yummy goodness


Here's what you're going to need-


1 Angel-Food Cake- you could make your own but it's so easy to just buy them pre-made then you don't even have to turn on the oven for this yummy treat
1 Large package of fresh strawberries
1 bar of Fat-Free Cream Cheese at room temperature
1 lemon


Here are your instructions-


1- Wash and hull and your strawberries-

It's ok if you want to snack on one or two of these little beauties
2- Slice off the top of your Angel-Food Cake and make a little tunnel all around the inside-


Don't throw out those bits of cake you're going to use them in the next step.

3- Cube up the cake you scooped out and put them in your food processor with half the strawberries and your room-temperature cream cheese cut into cubes. Blend until everything is well mixed.


4- Take that wonderful mixture and spoon it into the tunnel in your cake.


Oooh so yummy! Just lightly sweetened from the strawberries. :)

5- Put the top of the cake back on and put in the refrigerator to chill and let the cream cheese filling firm back up.

6- Take the other half of your strawberries and the juice of your lemon and puree them in your food processor/blender.


This is Amazing! Sweet with just a little tart from the lemon. Nectar, I tell you. Put this in a seal-able container and refrigerate. This is your topping. It sets off the sweetness of the cake and the richness of the filling perfectly.

7- Enjoy! I let my cake filling set for a few hours, Your time will differ depending on how cold your refrigerator is. Simply slice your cake and drizzle some of your Strawberry-Lemon goodness over your cake and get ready for the yumminess to hit your taste-buds.

YUM!!!!
Are you ready for the best part- Here's the points break-down-

If you cut it per the "serving-size" listed on the side of the cake this will yield 8 approximately 1" pieces. Each one inch piece is only 5 Points-Plus points. If you cut it into 1/2" pieces which is still enough to enjoy it's only 2.5 Points-Plus points. The picture above is a 1/2" piece.

As this is a refrigerator cake, it's perfect for hot days. The cool, creamy filling really hits the spot. Know what else hits the spot? Eating this and knowing you still have lots of points to use for other cook-out yummies.

I hope you'll give this a try. I'm sure you'll enjoy it! If you try it, I'd love to hear what you thought.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have an Amazing holiday tomorrow. Till next time-

Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.

Be Safe,
Shan

  2. This looks AMAZING Shannon! I'm visiting you from the "Pin It Thursday" link-up mentioned above! It doesn't look that bad for you as far as suger, either. (I don't do the points system, but I do count calories, and it sounds like a good deal to me!)

    I'm now following your blog :-) Hope you get the chance to wander over to mine sometime soon!
