Berry Shortcake Jars
by Ashley Sornsin
Berry shortcake jars are a healthy spin on strawberry shortcake. You can switch up the fruits you use so you can get creative and use what’s in season. Using mason jars makes for a convenient and easy way to serve dessert that everyone will love! It’s hard to believe this entire recipe is refined sugar free because it’s naturally sweet! All you need are a few ingredients for a perfectly healthy, gluten free, dairy free, vegan dessert that tastes amazing and is ready in minutes.
The shortcake is absolutely delicious with just the right texture. The coconut milk brings the perfect amount of moisture to the batter and as a bonus, provides healthy fats versus typical shortcake. The coconut whipped cream along with maple syrup is also a healthy way to add a bit of sweetness naturally.
