Strawberries & Cream Frosting

I am not a huge frosting fan. I usually find the stuff to be sickeningly sweet. My mom, my boys, my husband, they are the type of folks who could skip the cake and just eat the frosting. I want the cake, with a little bit of light and airy topping. My favorite frostings are usually cream cheese based or whipped cream. This one has both! This frosting on top of a basic soft yellow cup cake reminds me of strawberry shortcake. The strawberries are subtle and not overwhelming. I experimented with birch tree sugar in this recipe. Birch sugar isn't exactly something I could make at home because it is fairly processed but I am still trying to come up with recipes that are diabetic friendly and made with real food. You could always skip the birch sugar and replace with more coconut sugar. This frosting is light and will keep its shape to a degree, it will probably not be the icing you would use to make flower petals and fancy things. I am not very good at frosting cupcakes as I have very little experience and very little incentive (my boys don't ooooh and ahhhh over fancy frosting jobs, they just dive right in and are thrilled if I have frosted them at all) but I did try to make my cupcake look at least a little put together, plus I wanted you to see the consistency that the frosting comes out as.



Strawberries and Cream Frosting

                                  adapted from Sturdy Whipped Frosting



4 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup strawberry puree*, cold

1/4 tsp liquid stevia

2 TBSP coconut sugar

2 TBSP birch tree sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup heavy cream


*I used frozen strawberries to make my puree since strawberries are not in season right now, you can either let them defrost on their own or put them in an oven safe bowl and heat them for a few minutes. Once they were slightly soft I used my indispensible immersion blender and whirled them into puree.


Mix stevia into strawberry puree, then combine with cream cheese using an immersion blender until it is smooth (depending on how cold your cream cheese was you may have little lumps left, which will not ruin the recipe). Once smooth place in the bowl of your stand mixer and use a whisk attachment to add the sugars and vanilla. Whisk on high speed until well blended. Slowly (very slowly, like adding oil to mayonnaise) add the cream in a thin stream or a few drops at a time. Once all of your cream has been added continue whisking for a minute or two more until the frosting is holding its shape. Use to frost cupcakes, make frozen treats, eat as is, whatever your mouth desires.

Makes 3 cups (2 Tablespoons per serving, will frost 24 cupcakes)
