Waffle Wednesday: The Strawberry Shortcake Edition

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

There were two different homemade waffle recipes I was debating between making for Waffle Wednesday this week. However, I woke up feeling lazy and craving strawberry shortcake. :)

Last night, I made sweetened strawberries, and I guess I still had strawberries on the brain. However, there was no shortcake or whipped cream to be found. So, I improvised…

I toasted 2 Eggo Waffles (I swear, they are still my favorite toaster waffle. No other brand gets as crispy, and I love that buttery taste! I’m not the only one still lovin on the Eggos, right Em? 😉 ) and layered them with the strawberries and vanilla protein ice-cream.

For the sweetened strawberries, simply cut up fresh strawberries, add a sprinkle of stevia or sweetener of choice (I used SlimSweet), and mash with a potato masher. After a few hours in the fridge, the strawberries get all syrupy – so good!

Confession: The photo above only includes about 1/3 of the batch of protein ice-cream. After taking the picture, I plopped the remaining ice-cream on my plate and went to town. It wasn’t very pretty, but it sure made my belly happy. Strawberry shortcake craving satisfied!

Your food confessions from yesterday’s post cracked me up – thanks so much for sharing! I think Gina wins the award for most embarrassing food from the past for her mayo and tootsie roll sandwiches on white bread. Yep, even I can’t top that one Gina. 😉

Enjoy your Wednesday!
