Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

Looking for a delicious dessert? Try this simple and perfectly sweet vegan strawberry shortcake. Layers of shortcake, vegan whipped cream, and strawberries make up this delicious dessert! It’s an easy twist to the classic dessert, with layers of vanilla cake, juicy strawberries, and fluffy whipped cream. In fact, it’s the perfect dessert for summer and valentines day. And we believe this to be one of the best ways to use fresh strawberries. Of course, if fresh is not an option, frozen work well, too. And you might try substituting mixed berries, too!

If you’re looking for a light dessert to make for your next party this is the one for you!

To Make Biscuits For Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter, cut cold vegan butter into squares, and cut it into the dry until it’s fine and crumbly.
  • Then pour into the vegan butter, which is simply non-dairy and apple cider vinegar.
  • Mix, cut into biscuits, and bake for 15 minutes.


TIP: If you don’t have a biscuit cutter, you can use a round glass to cut them. In fact, we often use a wide-mouth canning jar lid. To keep your dough from sticking, dunk it in a bit of flour between each cut!

EASY PEASY RIGHT? Now let’s make our dessert!
