Low Carb Strawberry Shortcakes

It’s not summer without strawberry shortcakes, and these low carb strawberry shortcakes are just the dessert you need on a hot day!

We can’t let summer pass us by and not have strawberry shortcake. There’s really nothing better than sweet strawberries, a fluffy whipped cream and a yummy biscuit soaking up all the juices. My goal was to recreate this summer essential, but drastically reduce the carbs.

The challenge was in the biscuits. I can’t really get around the carbs in the berries, and whipped cream is delicious with or without a carb free sweetener. Of course, I figured it out when I added my magic ingredient…mozzarella cheese!

To make the biscuits, I used the same recipe it used for my low carb biscuits and gravy recipe, with just a little tweaking. Now, I only bake with coconut flour if I’m going to be using a sauce or something that will overpower the coconut flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good sugar free piña colada, but something about  the taste of coconut flour irritates me. Thankfully, making the strawberries juicy helps to cover up the coconut flavor in this recipe!

I suggest cutting the strawberries up ahead of time. Sprinkle on just a little bit of sweetener and let it sit for a while. You want the juices of the strawberries to come out. It also helps to smash some of the berries to release the juices.


Tip: If you want to reduce the carbs even more in these low carb strawberry shortcakes, switch out the strawberries for raspberries!
