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! :) 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!

    THAT LOOKS AMAZING!! I need to buy ramekins! πŸ˜‰ Course I would do the non paleo AND maybe work in some strawberry Designer whey protein powder!!! :)

    Looking forward to melons & other summer goodies!

    Dessert – always cookies! :)

      Thanks Jody! You can get ramekins for $2.50 (for big ones) or $1.50 for small ones at Pier One! So cheap! Some strawberry designer whey mixed into the greek yogurt would be amazing!! :) I love melons too! I can’t wait for summer!

    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!

    • Sarah says

      I love watermelon too!! It’s so refreshing! I eat avocados all year long (despite the price) because they are just soooo good! I can’t get enough! You definitely need to pick up some coconut flour! It is reasonably priced and soooo delicious! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Kristy! Have a great night! :)

    Oh yum. After seeing this recipe on IG yesterday, I am just getting the chance to look it up today, and it looks amazing! Love almond flour, and this is just the perfect size and balance of everything for breakfast OR dessert. Thanks!
