Keto Strawberry Shortcake – A Perfect Summer Snack

Keto Strawberry shortcakeheader2

A long time ago I posted my Top 5 Strawberry Recipes. As a family, we loved those recipes but they were enjoyed before we started following the Keto way of eating. Unfortunately, when it comes to keto those recipes don’t quite fit the bill. I have since learned how to convert most recipes to Keto, thanks in part to my handy conversion chart and have decided to go back and re-do as many of them as I can. This Keto Strawberry Shortcake is the first of these attempts and although it took me a few tries I am proud to say that it turned out really good! My husband and my kids both loved this recipe and all of us are really happy about being able to enjoy some strawberry shortcake this summer!

  1. I’ve never been a fan of cheesecake, but my husband loves it. I should make this for him and see if he notices the difference between this recipe and the typical non-keto one.

  2. This looks amazing! I love strawberry shortcake and totally agree it is perfect for summer!

      It was pretty simple. as long as you can whip egg whites your good I think haha!

  3. Pinned this, looks great!

      It was! But then can you ever go wrong with whipped cream and strawberries? It’s a match made in heaven!

  4. In the recipe the ingredients calls for 3 eggs but you only talk about 2 eggs remaining and to separate the yolks. So do I add a full egg to the cake batter? I hope so cuz that’s what I am doing right now.

    1. Author

      Yes This is exactly right! Sorry for the confusion I will update the post!

  5. Getting ready to make…….can’t wait!!! One question……is the butter in the cake softened or melted??
    Thank you!
