Vegan Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Trifles are one of my favorite desserts! They’re fun to make and they have a “wow” factor that’s great for gatherings! This Strawberry Shortcake Trifle is both vegan and gluten-free (although you’d never know it!).

If strawberries are out of season, you can easily sub with other fresh berries like raspberries and blueberries. 

Vegan Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Ingredients needed:

For the Gluten-free Shortcakes:

3 Cups gluten-free flour

1 Cup almond flour

1/4 Cup coconut sugar

4 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tsp salt

4 Tsp baking powder

1/4 Cup softened coconut oil

1/2 Cups full-fat coconut milk (the liquid part, not the cream)

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Vegan butter (to brush on shortcakes

For the Whipped Cream:

4 cans of full-fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight- use only the cream part that separates from the liquid)

1/4 cup maple syrup

Also needed:

2lbs strawberries- hulled and sliced

This trifle may look complicated, but it’s anything but! The first step is to make the shortbread. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and then add the coconut oil and combine. Then add the dairy-free buttermilk (a mixture of coconut milk and apple cider vinegar) and stir together. Form the dough into 1 inch thick disks using your hands. Then, cut circular shapes out using a narrow drinking glass. Place on the lined pan and cook the shortbread for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

To make the coconut whip cream:  Refrigerate 4 cans of full-fat coconut milk for 24 hours.  Scoop the cream part into a large bowl (leave the liquid). Add the maple syrup and beat with a hand mixer for 3-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. 

Now comes the fun part- making the trifle! Cut each biscuit into 6 sections. Layer the shortbread at the bottom of the dish (use 6). Then, add half the whip cream and a layer of sliced strawberries. Add another layer of shortbread, whip cream, and strawberries. Refrigerate and when you are ready to serve let stand for 15 minutes.
