Strawberry Buttercream Frosting - Refined Sugar Free, Pink Frosting With Real Strawberries!

For most of our special occasions lately, I’ve been quite happy with my grain free chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I’m in a no-fuss season of life and what works…works.

I also have little girls in my brood, so when a pair of blonde braids and blue eyes asked for something pink and strawberry for her 7th birthday I left the “what works” zone and went looking for inspiration. I found strawberry frosting on Urban Poser and gave it a no-fuss makeover for GAPS/no starch/less ingredients, pairing it with my chocolate cupcake recipe. It was a hit!

The only “special” ingredient you will need is freeze dried strawberries (preferably organic). I also use a pastry tip to make my frosting a little more special.

May your little girls (or boys) find enjoyment from this frosting recipe.
