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.

Great recipe! I added strawberries and blended for 1/2 of the frosting. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Love this alternative. Next time I'll use even less sugar. Required only 8 oz of cream cheese to frost the top of a 9x13 pan (made carrot cake bars). Read More
