How to Make Harvest Cupcakes with Orange Frosting


¼ cup + 2 tablespoons goji berries
¼ cup + tablespoons water
1 cup pal shortening
½ cup honey
1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/8 teaspoon vanilla liquid stevia
1/8 teaspoon fine grind sea salt
1 tablespoon coconut flour, sifted, as needed
Sprinkles, optional

Place goji berries and water in a small bowl. Let sit 20 minutes to soak berries.

Place palm shortening, honey, coconut flour, stevia and salt in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer to combine. Set aside.

Place goji berries and water in mini blender or food processor and process into a puree. Set a fine mesh strainer over a mixing bowl. Pour goji puree into the strainer and press it through the mesh scraping with a flexible silicone spatula to get as much puree as possible into the bowl. Discard seeds left in the strainer.

Add strainer puree to shortening and honey mixture and beat with an electric mixer to combine. If frosting is too thin to spread, beat in 1 tablespoon coconut flour to thicken.

Spread frosting over cooled cupcakes. Alternatively, cut a corner off a sturdy plastic food storage bag and add a 1M open star tip. Place frosting into the corner of the bag with the tip. Twist the bag and pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. Top each cupcake with a pinch of sprinkles, if desired. End.
