Lime-Coconut Cupcakes

Hey there! I hope you are all staying cool through this ridiculous heat wave! I’ve decided to stay inside, sip cherry limeade, and ponder why my produce seems to go bad so quickly! Fun times, right?

This is just a quick note to let you all know that I’m guest posting over at Bluebonnets & Brownies today while Amber is taking a little time away from her blog. These Lime-Coconut Cupcakes were the product of me purchasing a HUGE bag of limes from Costco and having nowhere to store them. They are fun, delicious and the perfect flavor combination for summer.

Head over to Bluebonnets & Brownies for the recipe! Oh and don’t blame me for the fact that you’ll be repeatedly singing, “You put the lime in the coconut and mix ’em both up” – okay, maybe you can blame me.

    These look awesome! My boyfriend loves lime and coconut, so I will definitely be bookmarking these to make for him at some point. I love the look of the pink and brown cupcake wrappers together.

    Shoot!! Now you’ve got me singing that song I was singing the other day when I made those Chewy Lime Coconut Sugar Cookies and I’d just gotten it out of my head!! I can see Kermit the Frog singing, “You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up…”
    Help me, Jamie – make it stop!!! ;-)

    I love the combination of lime and coconut in cake/cupcake form, it tastes deceptively light and so fresh!

    Sound amazing…and I’d totally make mojitos with limes….lime/coconut cupcake and a mojito…sounds like heaven.

    My sister introduced me to these amazing fridge storage containers:

    She’s a tupperware consultant. I buy produce at BJs now that my strawberries can be in my fridge for over 17 days without going bad. I know buy 6 lbs of strawberries at a time, oranges, apple, carrots, celery, grapes, peaches, and other fruit every 2-3 weeks, depending on how fast we go through them. Peppers, spinach, onions, lettuce, green beans about every 3-4 weeks! I’ve save at least $250 per month on groceries!

    if you want to contact her, I can’t see why she can’t “hook you up” with a discount and maybe you can do a review on them!

    Ah yes…the Costco inspiration; happens to me a lot! I made a key lime pie a couple of months ago but did not have the right milk in my cupboard (surprised I didn’t have 6 cans of it because of that connection!). I used coconut milk instead and it was the best have to make it differently than planned result ever. I’ll bet these are just as great and thank you very much, that song will now be in my head all day long!

    I’ve never tried the lime coconut combo in cupcakes before, but they look and sound amazing!
