If you are like me you are always on the search for the perfect summer treats that are not only delicious but easy to make and easy to clean up! These strawberry and blueberry cupcakes definitely do not disappoint!

What I love about these cupcakes is that it transforms a simple box of cake mix into the most flavorful cupcake you have ever had as it uses real fruit with a delicious cream cheese frosting.  


You will want to store your cupcakes in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days for the best results. 


One thing I have learned is when it comes to making this recipe, the smaller the blueberries the better. They not only mix in better and more even, but it ensures that every bite is filled with strawberries and blueberries. 


These strawberry and blueberry cupcakes are easily doubled which makes them perfect for a big group or if you find yourself with lots of fresh fruit that needs to be eaten. 

I highly suggest doubling this recipe when strawberries and blueberries are in season.

These cupcakes can be placed in the freezer for up to 3 months in an airtight container. Technically you can freeze them with the frosting, but I suggest freezing them unfrosted and then whipping up a fresh batch of frosting when you defrost them. 

So if you are craving a fruity treat this summer give these strawberry and blueberry cupcakes a try! I guarantee your tastebuds will be craving these cupcakes all season long.
