Welcome to the new blog, sunbeams! It's been a long time coming, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.
All of the recipes from my previous blog have been re-uploaded here (and they've also been categorized for easier access!).
I wanted to kick this new website off with a springtime recipe so I turned to you guys to ask what you wanted to see. The Instagram poll results showed that the springtime recipe you wanted most was Strawberry Shortcake.
So here it is! Flaky biscuits topped with the fluffiest whipped frosting and fresh strawberries. Quick and easy to make, as well as being oh-so-delicious.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tbsp coconut sugar or stevia
1 tbsp baking powder
Dash of salt
1/3 cup vegan butter (cold)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk of choice
Whipped Coconut Cream:
1/4 cup coconut cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 heaping tbsp vegan butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
Start by preheating the oven to 425 and lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt, and mix to combine. Now, using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut in the cold vegan butter until a crumbly mixture forms. Stir in the non-dairy milk little by little until the mixture becomes a dough. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1 inch thick and cut into your desired shapes (I usually use a cup to form my circles!). Place your biscuits onto the cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, and allow to cool completely before frosting. To make the topping, whip the coconut cream until it thickens and becomes frothy (around 3-5 minutes). Add in the vanilla, vegan butter, and icing sugar and stir until just combined, then continue to whip for an additional 3-5 minutes until mixture fluffs up and becomes airy. Top your cooled biscuits with your coconut cream and sliced fresh strawberries, and enjoy!
And there you have it! A recipe that's perfect as the weather warms up and the sun comes back out.
I hope you enjoyed it, lovelies! And, as always, if you try it out for yourself, be sure to let me know what you think over on Instagram.
Until next time, love and light!
