Make the shortcake: Make the biscuit dough according to these instructions. Divide into 6 portions and bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly puffed up in the center and golden brown on the bottom. Let cool completely (can be made up to 1 day ahead).
Macerate the berries: In a medium bowl combine strawberries, honey, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Let sit for at least 30 minutes, or until the strawberries have softened and released their juices.
Whip the cream: Add the coconut cream to a bowl of an electric mixer, taking care not to add any of the thin coconut milk. Whip the cold coconut cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and whip for an additional minute.
To serve: Cut the biscuit in half, top with a scoop of macerated berries, juice and a dollop of whipped cream and serve immediately.
You can substitute lactose free ghee for the butter in the biscuits
If you wanted to avoid refined sugars completely, you can substitute honey for the powdered sugar, but the coconut cream will be a bit thin.
