During summertime I find myself skipping dinner & going straight to dessert!
Without a doubt, summertime desserts are my fav!
Why? Well…summer desserts tend to be loaded with fruit!
& Luck me, becauseI have a ton of farm stands around my house (& they are walking distance too!),
So whenever I stop at one I end up leaving with a ton of fruit (It’s kind of an addiction).
& no matter what time of year I always get strawberries!
Okay literally strawberry shortcake (SSC) is my favorite summer dessert…EVER!
It’s not to heavy, it’s super sweet & it tastes sooooo good!
Recently I have fallen off the bandwagon & am re-addicted to this summer sweet! The other day I ate SSC for breakfast, lunch & dinner (help!).
So I figured I would share with you guys, my do or die strawberry shortcake dessert guide!
W/ The Coastal Confidence!
I embodied Barefoot Contessa & grabbed some natural strawberries from my local farm stand (She is The Hampton goddess, I don’t know how she makes grocery shopping look so fun).
Once I scrubbed the little strawberries down, I chopped those babies up & made some whipped cream!
I know your all thinking, who the heck makes whipped cream, because I was thinking the same thing too!
Until my mom showed me how easy & affordable it was (& then you can lick the bowl, so it’s a win win)!
Here is how to whip it (into shape)!
The ingredients are simple for this one, just add a pint of cream, 3/4 cup of sugar & a bit of vanilla extract!
& whip it to perfection!
I know people love biscuits with their SSC but I always go for the classic angle food cake (heaven).
I just love the fluffy texture of this cake & how it takes in the entire flavoring the strawberries have to offer!
I cut a slice of the cake, place a large scoop of strawberries & a doll-up of whip cream on top!
& Ta-da DONE!
Summertime reminds me of Autumn, because so much of the season revolves around seasonal food & fashion.
Between corn, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, hot dogs & bikinis; summer is deff a season in need of embracing.
But the best part about autumn & summer is that their unique food and clothing attire, always gives me something to look forward too.
When summer ends, I literally dye over the boot, legging & jacket combo that fall has to offer!
But before I get pumpkin spice latte crazy, I plain on enjoying the rest of the summer foods, especially WATERMELON!
So from now on, I’ll be in my backyard enjoying the tastes of summer!
