LIME CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Serves 8 | Prep 5 minutes
• 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
• 230g/8oz light cream cheese
• 1 tsp lime juice
• 1/2 tsp lime zest
• stevia liquid drops to taste
• 1 lime, to decorate
Blend the butter and cream cheese together in a food processor.
Add the lime juice and zest, and mix for 10 seconds. Add the stevia
liquid drops sparingly. Add a few drops or about . tsp. Taste and
add more to the desired level of sweetness. Refrigerate and remove
when ready to ice cooled cupcakes. Cut a lime into thin slices and
place on top of the icing. Makes about 1 cup.
Tip - Stevia liquid drops- add a small amount first and adjust to taste. Alternatively use powdered stevia. Stevia a natural, plant based almost zero calorie sweetener with many health benefits. Over many years of cooking, reading, experimenting and research, it's the best sweetener I've found.
