Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

In case you aren’t a regular blog reader, you may not know that I have no kitchen at the moment. Zilch. It’s stripped to the studs and I’ve been pulling odds and ends of frozen leftovers from our basement freezer for dinner. Not very exciting and I was getting antsy to make a dessert. Without a dishwasher. Yes, crazy town around here.

This strawberry angel food dessert fit the bill. My family loves strawberry desserts, like this Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie!

Made with fresh berries, my homemade version of Cool Whip, cubes of angel food cake and a little help from a box of jello, making this sweet treat was worth the risk of dish pan hands! Whether or not you have an oven, this strawberry dessert is a winner.

No-Bake Strawberry Dessert

As the temps climb, you won’t want to heat up your house when that dessert craving hits.  No-bake recipes are the perfect solution.

Using a couple shortcuts, like store-bought angel food cake and a box of jello make this a slick dessert to throw together. The strawberry jello enhances the berry flavor plus helps the whipped cream stabilize. The cake adds the structure and another texture to the mix.

I put this together in my makeshift kitchen in the basement, which is basically a card table with a hot plate. Next to the circuit breaker and sump pump. Classy, eh? The hand washing is the pits. But I’m seeing progress so hope I’ll have a spankin’ new kitchen in a couple of months.
