Yummy, Protein Strawberry ShortCake

Strawberry Shortcake Revamped

Yep, I did it! Trying to make this Strawberry Shortcake but this was not an easy creation it took many attempts before I figured it out. Luckily you can reap the benefits of my trial and error.

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 pregnancy 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, family friends brought over my favorite dessert- Strawberry Shortcake.  In that moment I experienced how my husband felt every time he would bring me home my favorite treat. I had to watch everyone else devour the Strawberry Shortcake. 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!

  1. 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!

    • I am so glad that this is something that you could divulge in and its really yummy. I really didn’t miss my old favorite from Cheesecake Factory. I hope you try it and let me know what you think!
