Strawberry Shortcake Recipe (Dairy Free)

By  | 

Every summer, my mom takes to her bed for about 24 hours.

She isn’t sick.

She isn’t sad.

She’s just in a full-blown food coma. I’m not kidding.

And the culprit is the most delicious strawberry shortcake on earth. The recipe has been in my family for over 100 years – and every single time my mom makes it, she eats way too much of it, and goes into a deep, dark food coma.

Amazing strawberry shortcake recipe - passed down through my family for more than 100 years! Modified to be dairy free - yum!

I finally got the recipe from her last summer.

And I did the same thing. I just couldn’t stop.

It’s that good.

(Unfortunately, I have young children in the house, so my food coma couldn’t last for a full 24 hours.)

I made a few modifications with Silk Almondmilk to make it dairy-free so that everyone in our house can eat it – and I have to say – it’s just as delicious!
