Greek Yogurt Frosting – A healthier version of “cream cheese” frosting for your cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. Learn how to make frosting from Greek yogurt.
“Cream Cheese” Frosting — You know the stuff right? Around the major holidays, we always start seeing recipes all over the blogosphere for cream cheese frosted cakes, cupcakes, breakfast rolls… I mean anything good to be baked at the holidays becomes great with cream cheese frosting. Am I right?
I’ve known for years that you could make a fantastic cream cheese alternative just by straining regular yogurt. We used this approach at Cooking Light when we wanted a cream cheese that was lower in fat than Neufchatel. But now, with the addition of Greek yogurt to the marketplace, it’s even easier to get a thick, rich creamy strained “cream cheese” that’s a perfect substitute over bagels, in tiramisu, as a veggie dip, or my personal favorite — frosting.
It’s not that cream cheese frosting is exceptionally difficult to make on its own. In fact, this method is a little more prolonged due to the draining step. But I love that you’re getting a higher-protein, lower-calorie frosting.
