Strawberry Shortcake – Low Carb & Gluten Free

Searching for that perfect 4th of July dessert that fits a low carb or gluten free diet?  Then you definitely need to try this!

I must say that up until recently my absolute favorite fruit was Strawberries.  My new found love is pineapple and mango…I think I need to go somewhere tropical.  Even though strawberries are no longer my #1, I am still a sucker for strawberry shortcake.  So of course I had to find a low carb alternative.
