Easy & Healthy Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

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. Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

Easy & Healthy Homemade Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 6 Servings


  • 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries Hulled, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 Package Mini Dessert Shells (Also called sponge cakes)
  • 1 Can Whipped Cream
  • 1-2 Teaspoons Sweetener I like Sweet N Low


  • Place sliced strawberries in a saucepan on medium for 5-10 minutes or until they reach the consistency you like. The longer you warm them, the mushier they will become.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons sweetener and stir. I use 2 packages of Sweet N Low but anything will work.
  • Take 1 mini dessert shell per per person and place in bowl.
  • Spoon strawberries over the top.
  • Top with whipped cream.

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.

What childhood favorite desserts did you love so much that you revamped it to a healthy version?
