Totally Healthy and Amazingly Delicious Strawberry Shortcake

Gluten Free

Ingredients:

Simply follow the recipe for Coconut Flour Pancakes adding 40 drops Stevia rather than 20 (or 2 Tablespoons honey rather than 1 Tablespoon if you are using honey to sweeten) . Use 3 teaspoons vanilla rather than 2 teaspoons. See recipe

  • 2 Pounds Organic Strawberries
  • 30 drops Liquid Stevia (15 drops per pound of strawberries)
  • One batch of Coconut milk whipped cream (see recipe below)

To Make Strawberry Shortcakes:

Wash strawberries and cut into quarters. Add Stevia to strawberries and mash with a potato masher or a fork. Cover and let sit for at least one hour to form juices. Smash again before serving if needed to create more juice.

Just before serving assemble shortcakes by placing a spoon of strawberries in the bottom of a bowl. Then place 1 shortcake then another layer of berries. Continue layering with 2 -3 shortcakes finishing with a scoope of strawberries on top. Add a dollop of whipped cream. Top with a whole berry (optional) and serve.

Seriously this dessert is so wonderful it may make you weep!

 

Non-Dairy Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

1  15oz can Coconut milk

7 Drops liquid Stevia

 

Place can of coconut milk in the refrigerator over night. The cream and the water will separate and the cream will become more solid. The next day, turn the can upside down and open it. The liquid should all be on the top. Pour off the liquid and save to use in another recipe. Scoop the solid coconut cream out of the can into a medium size mixing bowl. Add 7 drops liquid Stevia and mix with an electric hand beater. That’s it. Voila, creamy delicious whipped cream. Keep refrigerated.

Note: Sometimes when you open the can of coconut milk you may find the solid cream on top rather than the liquid. If this happens simply scoop the solid cream off the top leaving the liquid in the can. Then proceed as above.

I have found that most canned coconut milk works. However, occasionally I find a brand that is a little more liquidy and the whipped cream isn’t as thick. See the picture above. A bit running but delicious non-the-less. Eat it and enjoy and just don’t purchase that brand in the future.
