  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold vegan butter, diced
  • 3/4 cup plant based milk (any unsweetened plant milk will work)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons plant based milk
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar (optional)

Whipping Cream

  • 2 cups coconut whip


  • 2-3 cups sliced strawberries



  1. Preheat the oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.

  3. Add the vegan butter to the flour, and using your fingers or a pastry blender, break up the vegan butter until it is the size of peas. You want your butter to be cold so work quickly.

  4. Stir the vanilla into the milk and add the milk to the flour mixture; gently mix together to combine. Be careful to not overmix- the dough will look rough but should hold together and have all of the flour incorporated. You can add a couple of teaspoons more milk if you need to.

  5. Transfer the dough onto a floured countertop and pat together into a circle that is 1" thick. Using a round biscuit cutter or glass placed upside down, cut the biscuits into circles. Press together the scraps gently to avoid waste and cut again if desired (no waste!). Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each of the biscuits, brush the tops of each biscuit with plant milk and sprinkle the coarse sugar on top. Bake until they are golden, around 12 minutes.

To Assemble

  1. Let biscuits cool slightly then cut in half. Layer on coconut whip and strawberries on the lower half, place the top half on top and enjoy!
