A delightfully delicious dessert using summer-fresh dark-fruit. IMG_4146

Start by making a shortcake (3 parts flour, 1 part coconut oil and 2 parts almond milk).  Also, remember a pinch of salt, a bit of sugar and baking powder.  I tried forming it in a pastry ring, but they would be more consistent if they were rolled and cut.  Bake at 400F until golden brown.

While baking, prepare the fruit:   wash and drain blueberries and pit the cherries.

When the shortcake is finished baking, allow it to cool for a few moments and spread with dairy free spread (or whipped cream, if you prefer).  Then, pile the fruit atop the shortcake. As a finishing touch, drizzle with honey (or agave syrup if you're ultra-vegan).

Happy Fourth of July!!!
