Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted by Nicole

I haven’t been creative lately with my lunches and dinners.  Spinach bolani, roasted veggies, salad… and a few bags of popcorn here and there ;)

However, I can assure you that I have developed quite a little gem over the past few days.  You might recognize it as the mystery white cream that appeared beneath my Cheerios a few days ago?

Well, as promised:

Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting – Single Serving

makes 1/3 cup

  • 3 T fat free Cool Whip
  • 1.5 T fat free cream cheese
  • 1 T 0% greek yogurt (I tested both Chobani, Fage, and Dannon; all work fine!)
  • 1/2 T sucralose/sweetener
1. Combine all ingredients in a mini bowl, if only making the 1/3 cup serving.  If making a larger serving, use a larger bowl or electric mixer.
2. Mix together ingredients with a fork (or paddle attachment on an electric mixer).
3. If using a small bowl and fork to mix, stick the bowl in the microwave for about 7 seconds to soften it up.
4. Continue mixing with a fork.
5. Set in refrigerator for about 5 minutes until more solidified.
6. Take out, stir if needed, and EAT.
You can enjoy this any way you want: on a dessert, with some cereal, in a bowl of oats, as a dip, or simply eaten by the spoonful/fingerful.  You can put it on a healthy chocolate black bean muffin, too.  If you want to be really special, you can eat it with giant pretzels.  Sweet + Salty = Our favorite nighttime snack.  Trust me, your taste buds will be doing the happy-dance.
Make a tiny bowl, or a big bowl and save some for later.  Whatever your “sugar”-loving heart desires.
At least this cream cheese frosting is much healthier than the one we use for making cupcakes.  Using the entire listed recipe:

Keep in mind that the standard four ingredients for cream cheese frosting include butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract.  Our’s is healthier, yeah? Just think of this as a post-workout snack, it does pack 4.4 g of protein and 0 g of fat!

If feeling particularly wild, you can flavor this cream cheese frosting by mixing in a flavored extract (vanilla, almond, coconut, banana, maple, etc.) or a nut butter ;)

I know I could eat bowl after bowl of this stuff… Give it a try, one little bowl won’t hurt!  Be sure to let us know what you think!

Q4U: What is something you can eat bowl after bowl of?  Get creative!  Something other than cereal, froyo, or ice cream (those are a given!)

Q4U: What is your favorite frosting?  Chocolate, vanilla, cream cheese, german chocolate, italian meringue, marshmallow, fruity, streusel, etc…

    I could eat bowl upon bowl of buffalo chicken dip (anything can be the vehicle of the dip, I’m not picky!)

    Also, question: where on earth do you get this Spinach bolani? I WANT IT! Just looked it up, and decided it should be a healthy happy part of my life.

      We buy it at their booth in Costco or at a lot of the local farm markets around San Jose. I’m not sure if they sell it other places than the Bay Area, but for your sake, I HOPE THEY DO! It’s delicious! We tried the pumpkin bolani and spinach bolani. They come with about 4 big pieces per pack, so they last a long time too, which is good.

      another thing Nicole forgot to mention, do a google search in your area for any Afghani restaurants, you might be able to do a pick up order. They also sell online: http://www.bolaniandsauce.com/home.php
