High Protein Strawberry Shortcakes
- 3 scoops Garden of Life SPORT Certified Grass Fed Whey Vanilla
- 1 cup pastry flour
- 1/4 cup (50g) date sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup (180g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 412g plain nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
Coconut Whipped Cream:
- 1 (14-ounce) can coconut cream or full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
- 1/4 cup stevia
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Mix all dry shortcake ingredients
- Add cold, cubed butter and mix together with your hands until thoroughly combined and crumbly
- Add Greek Yogurt and gently mix until fully combined, but don’t over-mix (there should still be little bits of cold butter in with the mixture)
- Pour batter into lined and greased muffin tins
- Bake for 18 mins or until golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean
- Meanwhile, prepare coconut whipped cream. In a standing mixer, whip chilled coconut cream (just the solids - save the liquids for smoothies!) until thick and fluffy. Add stevia and vanilla extract and beat on high for 5 minutes or until stiff peaks have formed. Chill in fridge
- Once shortcakes are ready, allow them to cool completely, then gently remove them from their wrapping, cut in half and fill with whipped cream and strawberries
