Strawberry Shortcake in a Bowl!

What love looks like in gastronomic form.


Strawberry Shortcake in a Bowl

A variation of the breakfast Blueberry Muffin Pudding

  • 60g strawberries (about a heaping 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener, if desired
  • 2 tbsp creamer (such as Silk)
  • 1 serving cooked oatmeal or bulgur (see: how to cook bulgur)

Combine all ingredients in your blending gadget (I use a Magic Bullet). I love using frozen berries, as it makes the pudding super-cold and satisfying after a hot run. If you go this route, thaw the berries just a bit, so they blend more easily.

    Oh that is the prettiest breakfast ever! My favorite strawberry recipe is definitely strawberry shortcake. With lots of whipped cream! I bet it’d be good with your whipped cream in a bowl.

    1. Valerie says:

      Yup, I’ve made strawberry shortcake with Katie’s whipped cream in a bowl. So I can tell you: it IS amazing! You don’t miss the dairy cream one bit! 😉

    I always loved strawberries in a sour cream/brown sugar dip when I was a little girl…now I think I’m going to experiment with a silken tofu/agave/brown sugar dip to healthify/veganize it. It always was such a favorite of mine!

    Of COURSE I want to hear more about the boy! My love life is so disheveled right now I need all the vicarious stories I can get 😉

  5. Valerie says:

    My favorite strawberry recipe is homemade strawberry jam, hands-down!

  8. strawberries are good with just about anything. i think my favorite is either baked in muffins or scones.. or used as a topping for waffles <3

    hey, but theyre good wrapped in chocolate too 🙂 classic


  9. Hela says:

    that looks absolutely delicious!!
    i love to keep it simple with strawberries: i mostly eat them plain, preferably straight from a strawberry field 🙂 but i also like em in smoothies.
    i had some for breakfast yesterday morning and they were lovely!!
    excited to hear more about “the” boy, katie!!

    I love this cheerful post! That breakfast looks bowl looks so delicious and refreshing, I’ll have something like that too 🙂

    I think my favourite way to eat strawberries is just… a big bowl of strawberries. They’re already so perfectly sweet and juicy and delicious on their own! But I really love them in muffins as well. Or dipped in chocolate fondue…

    1. Bonnie says:

      *I’ll have to try something like that

      sorry, that sentence got messed up a bit (:

  11. Leslie says:

    Oooh you’re cheating on the boy already? Hahaha but I’d cheat with Mr. DCD peanut butter too. You turned me onto that stuff and now I am HOOKED!

  12. todayslady says:

    DCD and I have a thing too!

    My favorite way to eat strawberries so far is in a smoothie with chocolate protein powder but that may change if I try your strawberry shortcake. Looks super yummy 🙂

    1. Wha?? He told me we were exclusive! I’ll have to have a word with him ;).

  13. that look sososo good! Do you think it would work with wheatberries??

    1. I don’t see why not! After all, they’re pretty similar to bulgur :).

  14. Little Bookworm says:

    I’m not so keen on strawberries, though I love them when they are dried. They taste great! (That “shortcake” sandwich looks great though!) 🙂

    Yummy post, thanks. Request: if you get a chance while you are still in New York, would you consider going “dumpster diving” on Park Ave.? I wish I could do it, but I’m nowhere near New York. 🙂 Just a thought 🙂

    1. lol I’m actually not in NYC anymore.

    Favorite way to eat strawberries? With chocolate of course!!! 😀

    I love your strawberry makes me think of my grandfather. Everytime we go visit, he *always* has shmooshed strawberries, shortcake, and ice cream. It never fails. 🙂

    1. abby says:

      that’s my favorite way too! with chocolate! who can say no to a chocolate covered strawberry???
      katie, you should combine the chocolate cream pie bulgur and the strawberry one!

  17. Laura says:
