Strawberry Lime Shortcakes

Pin It Strawberries have been amazing lately.  I wanted to make some sort of dessert that was on the healthy side and wouldn't heat up my house with the oven.  This was the perfect solution.  The tartness of the limes adds a little something extra for your tongue.  I did cheat a little and buy a store bought angel food cake, but sometimes you just need a little help.  Feel free to make your own if you want.

Strawberry Lime Shortcake
**I'm vague on measurements because you can make one or a dozen depending on your crowd
Strawberries, rinsed and sliced
Angel Food Cake, cut into slices
Whipped cream
Juice and zest of one lime *or more if making more than 3-4 desserts
1 tsp honey
toasted coconut (optional)

1. Combine lime juice and honey in a small bowl.  Stir until well mixed.
2. Place one slice of cake in a bowl.  Top with desired amount of berries. 
3. Pour a small amount of lime juice mixture over berries.
4. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut and lime zest.
