’tis the season: strawberry short(cup)cakes
Just one of the many delights of spring is the arrival of strawberry season, and what better way to celebrate than with strawberry shortcake? I’ll be honest here: I actually like those super-processed and questionable shortcakes next to the strawberries at the grocery store, but I know I can do better. This vegan recipe speaks to my love for strawberry shortcakes AND my love for cupcakes, and it’s delightfully easy.
I also love whipped cream, and even if I could find vegan alternatives to buy here, I can’t say I would. I gave this coconut whipped cream recipe a try and was pleasantly surprised. No, it doesn’t taste like Cool Whip, but it doesn’t purport to. The coconut flavor is rather nice with the strawberries – but then again, I think coconut goes with everything.
