Strawberry Shortcake 1

Paleo Strawberry Shortcake

Serves: 2

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I thought we would kick off our Monday with a sweet treat that will throw us into the summer mindset! I know I am in need of some summer ASAP! πŸ™‚ About a month ago I had a craving for a sweet strawberry desert, so I decided to make this little treat for myself. Well, it turned out beyond amazing and definitely kicked my craving! I think more than a sweets craving, it was a strawberry craving because all I have wanted to eat for the last month is fresh berries and salads (except of course my brussels and kabocha ;)) To me that means my body is craving the summer… many more days until then?! πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  • I really need to get om the coconut flour train! There are so many delicious recipes out there using it, including this one. I’m definitely going to have to get some with my next iHerb order!

    For me, summer = watermelon and lots of cold fresh fruit and delicious avocadoes (because they’re at their prime in summer) – it’s wait I wait for every year!
