Strawberry Shortcake Recipe: Skinny & Easy


It's not strawberry season just yet but that does not stop me from making some delicious strawberry treats!  The other day while shopping at Sam's I saw a great deal on strawberries.  I love me some strawberries so I picked up a couple of containers.  One of my favorite morning snacks is a hot cup of coffee with a bowl of fresh strawberries.  I think they compliment each other SO well.  I also love to cook with strawberries, in the past I've made Skinny Baked Strawberry Shortcake Donuts, talk about GOOD with a hot cup of coffee!  Oh and I can not forget about these Skinny Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries, as you can tell I love sweet stuff!  Well, I have another one for you today:

Skinny Strawberry Short Upside Down Cake

Ingredients
2 cups fresh strawberries
1 package sugar-free strawberry Jell-O gelatin mix
1 package yellow cake mix
2 cups mini marshmallows
12 ounces diet 7-Up or Diet Sprite
