Total Time
Prep: 20 min. + chilling
Convenience items such as store-bought angel food cake, frozen strawberries and instant pudding mix make preparing this refrigerated delight as simple as can be. I whip up this refreshing strawberry dessert all year round. It's particularly attractive when served in a glass dish. —Sherri Daniels, Clark, South Dakota

No-Bake Strawberry Dessert

Prep Time 20 min
Yield 20 servings


  • 1 loaf (10-1/2 ounces) angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free strawberry gelatin

  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed
  • Chopped fresh strawberries, optional


  1. Arrange cake cubes in a single layer in a 13x9-in. dish. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in strawberries. Pour over cake and gently press cake down. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

  3. Spoon over gelatin layer. Spread with whipped topping. Refrigerate until serving. Garnish with chopped fresh strawberries if desired.
