Keto Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs


The classic summertime favorite dessert, strawberry shortcake, just got easier and easier to eat! These keto strawberry shortcake kebabs have bites of keto cake alternating with fresh strawberries and topped with melted white chocolate.

Summertime is usually when we fire up the grill and eat foods on a stick – kebabs! This is a dessert option that takes a traditional strawberry shortcake and turns it into an easy to make dessert. Pair this with caprese chicken kebabs for a simple summer night meal.

Strawberry shortcake is one of the easiest desserts to make. It’s the ideal finish to a family meal or if you are feeding a large group of people since it scales so easily.

Strawberry shortcake kebabs are even easier since we use a box low carb cake mix to make the cake portion of these kebabs and thread fresh strawberries on our skewers. To finish the dessert, top with a drizzle of sugar free melted white chocolate or simply dipped into a bowl of whipped cream as you eat.

    Keto cake mixes

    The easiest solution for making a keto cake is to make a boxed or package cake. There are many companies producing low carb cake mixes. Many are gluten free and use better ingredients. Here are some of my favorites.

    • Duncan Hines – 4 g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with allulose and stevia
    • Good Dees – 2 g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with erythritol and stevia
    • Keto and Co – 1.8g net carbs per serving; gluten free; sweetened with erythritol and monk fruit

    Of course, you could always make your own keto vanilla cake from scratch.

    There are two types of skewers you can use to make these dessert kebabs – metal and wooden.

    • Metal skewers: These are reusable and splinter-free. They don’t require any prep before you start threading your bite sized chunks.
    • Wood skewers: These are generally less expensive and are not reusable. They can cause splintering; therefore must be soaked in water for an hour before using.

    Storage information & make ahead instructions

    Make ahead instructions: Save time by making the keto cake ahead of time. It can cool overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, you can prep your kebabs.

    You could prepare all the kebabs the day before as well. Just keep them tightly covered so they don’t dry out. Save the white chocolate drizzle for just before serving.


    Storage: Store leftover strawberry shortcake kebabs in the refrigerator tightly wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 3 days. Freezing the kebabs is not recommended.
