Shortbread Crust

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Monk Fruit granulated*
  • 1/2 cup ghee melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum*


  • 8 oz. container dairy-free cream cheese I use Kite Hill
  • 8 oz container light coconut whipped cream
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered swerve*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 3 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons monk fruit sweetener granulated


  • Make The Crust: In a large mixing bowl, add all of the crust ingredients and mix them together.  The consistency will be a crumbly texture. Transfer the crust into the parchment-lined baking pan. Spread it out with your fingers and press down to compact it together. Make sure the crust is an even layer.
  • Bake the crust: Bake the crust for about 15 minutes in a 350F oven until it starts to brown and remove and set to the side and allow to cool completely around 30 minutes. 
  • Make the icing: place the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whip using a handheld mixer. Mix for 40 seconds or until combined. 
  • Assemble: Top the crust with an even layer of icing then top with the strawberries. Cut into 16 pieces and eat immediately or freeze for 3 hours. 
  • Storage: Store any leftovers in the freezer for up to 4 months. Simply allow them to thaw for 10-15 minutes and enjoy! 


  • You can also use erythritol, swerve, stevia in place of the Monk Fruit. If you are not low carb, you can use coconut sugar instead. 
  • If you are not dairy-free, feel free to sub regular cream cheese and whipped topping.
  • If you want a thicker creamy topping, add an additional 1/3 cup of the powdered swerve.
  • Each bar has 10 net carbs.
