Ingredients for the Keto Cranberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

As always, use low-carb and fresh products. For the cream cheese frosting, I recommend Philadelphia, because is quite thick and perfect to make a cheese frosting.

You can use both fresh and frozen cranberries. For this recipe, I used frozen cranberries because they are bigger and with a better effect.

Use a sac à poche to decorate the muffin. I have this one and it did its job wonderfully. I bought it in AliExpress.
If you don’t own one, pour the cream cheese into a freezer bag and cut a very tiny edge.


The cream cheese frosting is quite delicate. For this reason, I recommend to consume these cupcakes in 2 days from the preparation. Store them in the fridge, into an airtight container.
