Cream Cheese Frosting
From EatingWell: July/August 2013
This healthy and easy cream cheese frosting recipe is ready in just five minutes and makes enough to frost the top and sides of one 9-by-13-inch sheet cake. We made this frosting healthy, with less saturated fat and calories than traditional versions, by using reduced-fat cream cheese instead of full-fat cream cheese, using Greek yogurt in place of butter and keeping sugar to a minimum.
- 12 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), at room temperature
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 3 tablespoons low-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Beat cream cheese, sugar, yogurt and vanilla in a mixing bowl until smooth.
