Healthy Strawberry Shortcake

Healthy Strawberry Shortcake

My family is so excited that fresh strawberry picking has started!

 
One of my favorite memories as a kid was picking fresh strawberries with my family, and then coming home and enjoying homemade strawberry shortcake with my dad.  
 
The traditional version of shortcake has lots of carbs (hello, sugar and flour) so now that I’m preparing for my upcoming fitness competition I’ve been testing out a lower carb healthy strawberry shortcake recipe instead. 
 
This recipe is packed with protein and fiber and gives the taste of shortcake without all of the carbs. 
 
You could drop this dough into round shapes to create individual shortcakes, or do what I’ve done and throw it all in a pan… either way, top with fresh strawberries, a little bit of unsweetened almond milk, or some homemade coconut whipped cream and you’re sure to have a dessert the whole family will love!

Ingredients
  1. • 1 can Coconut Milk (full fat!)
  2. • 10 drops liquid stevia extract
  3. • Optional vanilla extract to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator and chill overnight.
  2. Place a medium-sized, deep metal mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer and chill.
  3. Remove coconut milk from refrigerator, but do not agitate – you want it to remain separated. Open the can and scoop off the cream layer that has risen to the top. Place cream in chilled bowl.
  4. Beat the coconut cream on high speed for 2-3 minutes or until fluffy peaks form.
  5. Add stevia drops while mixers are going to incorporate.
