Red White & Blueberry Ricotta CupCakes #SundaySupper

 

My Sunday Supper team is going with a “Fourth of July” theme this week. I thought this might be a good time to make my ” Red White & Blueberry Cupcakes”  All natural ! Red for strawberries, Blue for blueberries and White for ricotta or cream cheese icing.  Creamy ricotta cheese blended with flour and fresh strawberries make the base for this cup cake.Ricotta cheese makes this a healthy high protein cupcake and adds a boost of calcium as well!  There’s more fruit than flour in this batter LOL :) Top this with a ” melt in mouth” homemade cream cheese icing, some fresh strawberries and blueberries and you have a perfectly healthy excuse to eat cupcakes by the dozen !!  My homemade icing is super easy to make. Just blend some cream cheese with fresh butter and a little brown sugar to get a soft, fluffy whipped frosting. The only problem with this frosting is that it’s difficult to ice with. You can just put a dollop on the cake. I made mini cupcakes on request from my youngest who wanted them for her birthday ! It was difficult to put a strawberry on as you can see :) ! You can make regular sized cupcakes which are easier to decorate. Either way, mini cupcakes or regular, these guilt free, healthy cupcakes are a heavenly mouthful !

Making it Diabetic Friendly :

Substitute the sugar for agave nectar to make this diabetic friendly. The protein in the ricotta cheese will help prevent  sugar spikes making this a perfectly safe diabetic cupcake :) !!!
