This is one guilt free dessert for the entire family to enjoy. Guaranteed to disappear within minutes as if you never made them. They may be mini but they are not mini in flavor. The combination of zesty lime with tart kiwi's make these mini cupcakes sensational. They are definitely the BEST guilt free mini dessert I have ever made. I did make these in my Ninja & not sure yet how they will convert over to the regular stove but I will know soon enough & will update when I do.

Recipe comes from my Ninja Cooking System Cookbook. I sure hope you enjoy. I added Weight Watcher Values too.

How to Make Light Kiwi Lime Angel Food Mini Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. 1 Ninja Cooking System w/silicone mini-muffin tray
  2. In a very small bowl, combine cake flour with 1 tbsp sugar and set aside. In another medium sized bowl beat egg whites, vanilla extract, salt & cream of tartar with an electric mixer on high till soft peaks form. Add 1 tsp of lime zest & 1 tsp of lime juice to mixture. Gradually add the remaining 2 tbsp of sugar. Beat on high until mixture is fully incorporated, glossy and stiff peaks are formed.

    Fold in by hand (not mixer) the flour and sugar mixture in thirds until fully incorporated. Make sure to try and keep batter as voluminous as possible.
  3. Spray your silicone mini-muffin tray with cooking spray and then fill each cup with 1 tbsp of batter.
    Pour your water into the bottom of your Ninja Cooking System and place the roasting rack down inside and your muffin tray on top of rack. Set OVEN to 325 degrees for 15 minutes. (Do not open and keep looking at the mini-muffins or they will not rise. This happened to my first batch. LOL) Mine took the whole 15 minutes and I even went 2 minutes longer. The cookbook says check them at 12 minutes and remove when a toothpick inserted to center comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes and let cool then wash out the muffin tray and make the next batch. I also popped them out of muffin tray right away too.
  4. Stir together your icing mixture (except for the kiwi that goes on top) and drizzle over the tops of the warm muffins. Add your slice of kiwi and you are ready to serve.
  5. Nutritional Values on these. 15 calories, 0G Fat; 0G Saturated Fat; 10mg sodium; 4G carbohydrates; 0G Fiber, 0G Protein......Yes, this is one AMAZING dessert!!!

    Weight Watchers Point Plus Value --- 2 points for 4 of them.....old WW points value ----1 point for 4 mini cupcakes.
