Fourth of July Shortcake Recipe with Cream

Fourth of July Shortcake Recipe with Cream for HCG Phase 3


Enjoy this delicious, low carb Fourth of July Shortcake Recipe at your next Fourth of July celebration.  This buttery, delicious shortcake is perfectly low carb and makes a delicious HCG Phase 3 dessert.  A touch of orange juice and zest is my secret to a sweet, fresh fruit topping.

If you have leftovers (I rarely do because this is just so yummy) you could layer leftover shortbread with cream and fruit in a glass bowl or dish and allow the flavors to marinate and the shortbread to soften, and serve it as a trifle.  The fruit topping can also be enjoyed on its own, served over Greek yogurt with almonds to make a healthy breakfast, or used as a topping for low carb pancakes.

Fourth of July Shortcake Recipe


2 cups sliced strawberries

1 1/2 cups blueberries

1/4 cup orange juice

Pinch of orange zest

Stevia to taste


1 cup almond meal

1 cup coconut flour

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup butter

4 ounces cream cheese softened

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 tablespoons milk

Stevia to taste


Mix strawberries, blueberries, orange juice, vanilla, zest and stevia and refrigerate to marinate and combine flavors.  To make the shortcake, cream butter and cream cheese, add the egg yolk, stevia, and vanilla.  Mix in almond flour and coconut flour and add milk.  Pre-heat oven to 375.  Drop shortcake in 2-3 inch mounds onto cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes until shortcake is lightly browned.  Allow to cool, cut shortcake in half and top with berry mixture and top with Stevia Whipped Cream.  Garnish with fresh mint, a sprinkle of stevia, and orange zest (optional)
