A healthier version of “cream cheese” frosting for your cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. Learn how to make frosting from Greek yogurt.


  • 2 cups Greek yogurt (may use plain or vanilla, depending on how sweet you want your frosting)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Line a small sieve with coffee filters (I suggest 1 filter per 1 cup of yogurt). Spoon yogurt over coffee filter and smooth evenly. Place over a large bowl. Refrigerate overnight, allowing yogurt to drain into bowl.
  2. Discard draining liquid. Spoon drained yogurt into a medium bowl; beat in powdered sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.


I recommend refrigerating cakes/cupcakes after topping with this frosting.
