Paleo Strawberry Cupcake Filling

Paleo Strawberry Cupcake Filling

Cupcakes have gotten so popular these days, haven’t they? What a craze we’ve seen in the world of baking! Cupcakes are everywhere these days, and I see them all the time in cookbooks and cooking magazines (I have TONS of these around the house!). As soon as I see a picture of a beautiful, moist-looking cupcake, usually topped with some gorgeous decoration, my mouth just starts watering!  So it was only fitting that I share my paleo strawberry cupcake filling with the world.

This is one of those paleo dessert recipes I came up with after seeing a strawberry-filled cupcake on a magazine cover. Yah, you know, one of those!  Just nearly died! The trouble was, it was a traditional cooking magazine, not paleo one bit.

Off I went and I found a paleo image I liked on an Instagram page (Dame Dayne I believe?). So, I looked up the recipe on her site. Figured I’d give it a whirl. That was over a year ago. I am not sure how much I have altered it now as she is no longer active on Instagram and I cannot find her or her site.

This paleo strawberry cupcake filling is now one of my most favorite paleo desserts! If you’re feeling extra fancy, top your cupcakes with creative chocolate designs!

      Hello Llona,

      Thank you for asking. Primarily this recipe is for filling but it can be thickened with tapioca to use as a topping if needed, and simply refrigerated to make cold to spread.

      Have fun!
