I’m a strong supporter of everything in moderation – and I love bringing you all a variety of recipes, so think of this as just a new recipe category! 🙂

Pillsbury has these fantastic sugar free cake mixes that have come out, and boy – they taste just as good as the traditional version – and are super fluffy too!  Not dense and icky like a lot of products I’ve tried.  They work fantastic here, as does the sugar free versions of jell-o!

First step, combine 1 small box of sugar free cheesecake jello pudding & mix it with 1.5 cups of low-fat (or fat free) milk – stir to combine with a whisk until the pudding has gotten thicker.

Now, add in the box of Pillsbury sugar free yellow cake mix along with 3 eggs.  Stir to combine (electric mixer works great for this!) – batter will be thick.

Now, lets get that icing done.  Afterall, isn’t that the best part of a cake?

Take your second small box of sugar free cheesecake pudding, & mix it with 1.5 cups of lowfat (or non fat) milk. Stir with a whisk until thickened & pudding is set.

Serve each slide with a couple of freshly sliced strawberries. You’ll want to add the fresh strawberries at the time of serving instead of piling them on top of the cake to avoid any of the berries going bad before their time.
