Low Carb Strawberry Shortcake

Today makes one month of low carb dieting for me, I've lost a little over 14 pounds and have been able to wear clothes that I couldn't at the beginning of summer! Tonight I made this yummy strawberry shortcake for dessert, even my picky eaters ate it :)

Low Carb Strawberry Shortcake


1 3/4 cup Almond flour
2T coconut flour
1T baking powder
1/2 t Splenda
1 egg white
1/2 t pure vanilla extract
6 T salted butter (room temperature)


4 oz cream cheese
1/4c heavy whipping cream
5 packets of Splenda
1/4 t pure vanilla extract

8-10 strawberries sliced thin with 2 packets of Splenda, let chill while crust bakes & cools.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients blend well until dough forms.

Place dough on parchment paper, cover with another sheet of parchment paper and roll out to a 10inch or so circle.

Bake 18-22 minutes, until edges are brown, check often. Cool completely.

For the filling mix all ingredients well.

After crust has cooled top with the filling, sliced strawberries & a small serving of RediWhip.

I'm not sure of the exact carb count but its low, makes about 8 servings.

Being creative is the key to any successful diet.
