Mango Banana Muffins with Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

Scrumptious Eid treat with sweetness combined from mangoes , ripe bananas and raisins. Yogurt is added to make it nice and moist. To reduce fat calories ,one can use pure vegetable oil or organic extra-virgin coconut oil instead of butter. 
Lime Cream cheese frosting adds a layer of lightly sweet and zesty topping. One can always skip the frosting ,as these are tasty enough without any frosting.
With richness in calories and sweetness, I'd say these are more close to cup cakes than muffins.
