“No Bake” Skinny Strawberry Shortcake Trifle, Ready in Minutes! If you’re short on time, this big on flavor dessert is perfect to make. So easy, quick and absolutely yummy! This isn’t your ordinary strawberry shortcake either. I’m starting with a store-bought fat-free angel food cake, adding fat-free vanilla pudding, Cool Whip, lots of fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries and drizzling a store bought strawberry glaze. You’ll love how light, fluffy and flavorful this is. The skinny for 1 serving, 120 calories, 0 fat and 3 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Enjoy!
