Mini Paleo Strawberry Shortcakes (Low Sugar)

Mini Paleo Strawberry Shortcakes (Low Sugar)

A low sugar, healthy twist on a summer classic. This recipe is made with almond and coconut flour, which are both low glycemic, gluten-free flour alternatives and are high in fibre and protein. The star of this dish is the fresh strawberries which are now in season. Strawberries are a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C, and are sweet enough that there is no need for added sugar in this recipe! The final powerhouse ingredient in this recipe is coconut yogurt, which serves as a dairy and sugar-free alternative to the traditional whipped cream served with strawberry shortcake. Coconut yogurt has the same fluffy texture but provides a source of probiotics to feed healthy bacteria in the gut.
