One of my favorite desserts growing up was mom’s homemade strawberry shortcake. Anytime we had biscuits with dinner there was a good chance strawberry shortcake was to follow. Mmmm! Childhood goodies.
Now that I’m older and health is a concern for everyone, I don’t indulge on homemade biscuits, fresh whipped cream and sugar laden strawberries but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to have a delicious treat now and then. This healthy strawberry shortcake is extremely simple and both young and middle aged like in my family.
If you pick a lot of strawberries at a PYO Strawberry farm, you can slice your strawberries, put them in a freezer bag and add sugar to them. Then when you are in need of a quick dessert, just take them out and woalah! This and other ideas can be found on our post about how to preserve garden vegetables.
There you have it! I know my sister would not choose to use Sweet N Low or any artificial sweetener but that’s part of where we differ. Artificial is sweeter than regular so you may need to adjust accordingly.
