Dairy Free Strawberry Shortcake With Balsamic Glazed Strawberries

The secret to delicious homemade strawberry shortcake is balsamic vinegar


 Strawberry shortcake is a family favorite summer dessert at my house. It is a simple recipe to make and I love that I can make it dairy-free. Ever since I discovered that a dairy allergy was the culprit to my out of control asthma, I have been learning how to make favorite recipes without milk ingredients. With just a few simple changes in ingredients, I am able to make a delicious strawberry shortcake that my whole family can enjoy. It may be allergy friendly but it tastes just like the strawberry shortcake that I enjoyed as a kid. The last time I made this delicious plant-based dessert, my family ate it up quickly and there were no second servings for the next day. So next time I make this incredible dairy-free dessert, I will make sure to double the recipe.


Balsamic vinegar turns strawberries into sweet morsels of delight



 When you make this homemade dessert, make sure to use fresh strawberries and add a splash of balsamic vinegar for incredible flavor. The balsamic vinegar may sound strange but trust me on this one as it brings out a wonderful sweetness to the strawberries and it does not taste like vinegar. The balsamic also gives the sliced strawberries an enticing look. You may have remembered last year when I posted about my lemon frosted rosemary sugar cookies and how delicious these cookies were. My boys love these cookies and they are a favorite Christmas cookie. Get the recipe for the balsamic glazed strawberries HERE.

Homemade sweet biscuits are easy to make



 It is so easy to make the shortcakes for DIY strawberry shortcakes so do not buy those tasteless small sponge cakes at the store. You know the ones that I am talking about, those over-priced small shortcakes that are near the fresh strawberries in the produce section. My homemade sweet biscuits are so easy to make that my 10-year-old son can make them. If you have flour, butter(vegan butter), dairy-free milk, sugar, and baking powder, then you can whip up these delicious sweet cakes. If you don't have dairy issues, then you can use real butter and milk. Since this is a drop biscuit recipe, there is no need to roll out the dough. Go HERE to get the incredibly easy recipe for the sweet strawberry shortcake drop biscuits.


I love that there is a dairy-free whipped cream 



 I like to make my own homemade dairy-free whipped cream from a can of coconut milk but if you are short on time or forget to place the can of coconut milk in the fridge the night before, then store-bought dairy-free whipped cream is just as delicious. Look for dairy-free whipped cream in the freezer section or the dairy section of your grocery store. My store doesn't always carry the spray type of dairy-free whip topping so when I do find this topping, I will buy a can for my coffee. Homemade coconut cream is so easy to make as all you have to do is whip the coconut milk and add sugar. Get the recipe for my homemade dairy-free whipped cream HERE.

Three delicious recipes to make one delicious dairy-free dessert

 Here are the links to the recipes that you will need to make the Dairy-Free Strawberry Shortcake. I recommend making the sweet drop biscuits first so they have time to cool. While the biscuits are cooling, make the balsamic glazed strawberries, and then make the dairy-free topping. Just make sure to place the unopened can of coconut milk in the fridge for 8 hours or more. Then after making the recipes, it is time to assemble the strawberry shortcakes. Slice a sweet biscuit in half and then place some of the sweet sliced strawberries on the biscuit halves. Top the berries with some whipped topping and enjoy. You can use just one half of the biscuit or the full drop biscuit, depending on how many servings you want. My biscuit recipe makes 6-8 biscuits. If you need more servings then that, just double the recipes.
