This Strawberry Shortcake recipe has been a staple recipe in my house for years! I grew up eating plenty of strawberry shortcake in the spring during strawberry season in South Carolina and did not intend to give up that tradition when I started trying to eat healthy. I hope you enjoy this easy strawberry shortcake as much as we do! THM S, low carb
My mom’s strawberry shortcake
The shortcake we ate growing up was not overly sweet, and it had a firmer, bouncier texture than a regular cake. In my mind shortcake is meant to serve as a vehicle and foil for fresh strawberries and milk, so that’s what I was going for with this low carb version as well.
Keep that in mind and add more sweetener if you see fit.
Whenever I eat this shortcake, something about it reminds me of Nilla wafers. Am I crazy??
My favorite way to enjoy low carb strawberry shortcake
I love topping strawberry shortcake with
- Sliced fresh strawberries tossed with a bit of THM Super Sweet Blend or THM Gentle Sweet,
- homemade whipped cream sweetened with some stevia or THM Gentle Sweet (or a small squirt of Reddi-wip for a quicker option),
- and a splash of unsweetened almond milk.
Don’t have fresh strawberries? Thaw some frozen strawberries and pulse them with a bit of sweetener to make a chunky strawberry sauce!
I also enjoy cold shortcake + vanilla stevia sweetened Greek yogurt + natural peanut butter + sliced strawberries for an afternoon snack!
New and improved
This recipe has been updated a bit as of April 2022. I found that it often came out a bit soggy in the center, so I made some tweaks to the coconut flour, baking powder, and water amounts. I also changed the baking time from 25 mins to 30 mins.
You can find the original recipe (first published to the blog in May 2015) on page 277 of Necessary Food.
My 5 Ingredient White Cake is a good single-serve option for strawberry shortcake!
