Protein Sparing Strawberry Shortcake
Did you know that June 14th is National Strawberry Shortcake Day?
Yes it is! My sugar free kids thought it would be important to celebrate so I made a protein sparing strawberry shortcake recipe for all of you to enjoy!
My Protein Sparing Strawberry Shortcake is a dairy free, high protein, low fat twist on my son Micah’s favorite dessert! Micah is dairy free but loves Strawberry Shortcake!
This protein sparing Strawberry Shortcake will not disappoint! It is creamy and delicious!
My Protein Sparing Strawberry Shortcake recipe would be a perfect dessert to serve for the 4th of July! I bet your guests will never guess the creamy filling is made with eggs!
To make my delicious protein sparing strawberry shortcake, I added used Wholesome Yum Allulose to make the protein sparing angel food cake!
Allulose is a natural sweetener with zero calories and has no impact on blood sugar. Many people prefer this as their keto sweetener because it tastes just like sugar! I LOVE Wholesome Yum’s Monk Fruit Allulose blend!
I only use Wholesome Yum brand of allulose for many reasons!
Wholesome Yum has the best quality natural sweeteners. Wholesome Yum also doesn’t use harmful additives like some brands! I also love Wholesome Yum because they are also a kind small family-owned business. You all know I love supporting small business!
