1. Set butter, eggs and rice milk out to warm to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
2. Process strawberries in a small food processor until pureed to make approximately 1/3 cup of puree.
3. In a medium bowl, combine white and brown rice flours, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
4. In a small bowl, combine rice milk, vanilla, and strawberry puree; set aside.
5. Cream butter on medium-high speed with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until well combined and fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and slowly add egg and egg whites until just blended.
6. With the mixer on low, slowly add half the rice flour mixture; mix until just blended. Add the milk mixture; mix until just blended. Slowly add remaining rice flour mixture, scraping down sides of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary, until just blended.
7. Pour batter into muffin cups. Bake until the tops are just dry to the touch, 22 to 25 minutes. Place muffin tin on a wire rack and let cupcakes cool before removing from tin.
