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
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…
