Yummy, Protein Strawberry ShortCake

Yep, I did it! I made a yummy Strawberry Shortcake after several failed attempts. I love Strawberry Shortcake when I was pregnant with my third I would call Cheesecake Factory 20 minutes before my husband got off work so it would be ready for him to pick up just as he passed it driving home. I specially requested everything in individual containers, and when he came back, I would welcome my Sweet delicious Strawberry Shortcake and then my sweet husband for giving in to my pregnant cravings. Although I really can’t blame that on pregnancy because I still crave Cheesecake Factory Strawberry Shortcake, there are several problems with it now. 1) I am lactose intolerant, and that delicious Vanilla Icecream does not go well with my digestive system (it never has, but I care now) 2) That buttery, flaky, with a hint of sweetness is not tolerable with my wheat allergy. Therefore, I no longer indulge in decadent goodness.

On Memorial Day weekend we had a cookout at our house which we are known to do. Any holiday, weekend, moment calls for a barbecue in my house. I just love to grill. I didn’t say, my husband, because I am the grill master at my house. Although, he is coming around and did well last night as we fired up the grill. I was shocked he even volunteered. Anyways, on Memorial Day, some family friends who didn’t know about the recent discovery of my stomach ailments brought my favorite over. Strawberry Shortcake and I felt how my husband felt every time he would bring me home my favorite treat, and I would devour it in his face. Everyone but me got to enjoy. The next day I made it my mission to create a healthy yummy fat loss, gluten free friendly Strawberry Shortcake and drum roll please…..here it is!

    I’m a diabetic and this looks like something I could eat! Anything with strawberries, but I love that this is a complex dessert instead of just throwing some ingredients together. I’m drooling!
