Healthy Christmas Tree Cupca

These beautiful  and healthy gluten-free Christmas tree cupcakes are colored with green tea powder. Spirulina powder can also be used for coloring. For more natural coloring options, check out this post. The chocolate cupcakes are light and rich-tasting, while the frosting just melts in your mouth. The best part is how easy these are to make. Just put some sprinkles on top and your trees are ready. To top your trees, you can use a star, cut out of mango.

For the frosting:

  • 1 small package heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup organic cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon or more green tea powder

Whip the heavy cream, until set. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Taste for sweetness level and add more sweetener, if needed. Add green tea powder, mix again and frost the cupcakes.

Use sprinkles and mango stars to decorate your cupcakes.
