Key Lime Colada Cupcakes


These cupcakes are the essence of summer. While I definitely prefer the mountains over the beach, coconut and lime together make me want to visit a white sanded beach with crystal blue water. Or maybe spring break is just getting to my head..For me, this is about as healthy as baking gets. Key Lime Colada Cupcakes certainly taste a bit less sweet, perhaps more like muffins than cupcakes.
