You would never guess this is a Skinny Strawberry Cream Pie. It is full of flavor and so very, very creamy !
Low-Fat Evaporated Milk is the Cream for anyone watching their weight or even just to have a sweet treat, but on the healthier side.
Okay, I know my decorating needs some work, but you can arrange the Strawberries in so many ways. Our Strawberry season is just about over, and for the next couple of weeks, we would be lucky to find decent Strawberries, and at a reasonable price, anywhere.
Fortunately, we now have peaches, nectarines, plums, peaches and loads of other delicious fruits available now. I have a few recipes to share with you in the near future – so… keep an eye out !
