No-Bake Strawberry Shortcake

We love a classic strawberry shortcake. If you've never heard of this dessert, you've either lived under a rock your whole life or your parents deprived you of love while growing up. Just kidding! It's essentially a flaky, buttery biscuit topped with fresh strawberries and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. Sounds delicious doesn't it?

It's not exactly the healthiest dessert since its filled with dairy, fat and refined flours and sugars. Don't worry though-- we've got the perfect healthy twist for you! We use a hazel&cacao-date base, fresh organic strawberries and coconut whipped cream.

Best part? It's a no-bake recipe so forget turning on your oven in 100F weather. Stay cool, sip some kombucha and let's get (un)baking!

No-Bake Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients:
(Serves 2)
Directions:
  1. The night before, place your coconut cream in the fridge to harden.
  2. Soak your dates in warm water for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour contents of the oatmeal cup into a food processor and blend with the dates until sticky. 
  4. Scoop the base evenly into 2 cups.
  5. Remove the coconut cream from the fridge and do not shake. Open up the can and scoop only the hardened top portion of the product into a clean, medium sized bowl. Discard the liquid or save it for smoothies.
  6. Using a hand/stand mixer, beat the coconut cream with desired amount of sweetener until light and fluffy ~2-5 minutes. 
  7. Place a big spoonful of your fluffy coconut whipped cream onto the base.
  8. Chop up about 1 cup of strawberries and layer it onto the cream.
  9. Again, take another big spoonful of cream and place it on top of the strawberries. 
  10. Garnish with another strawberry if desired. Enjoy!
