This simple frosting is very versatile and is a healthier alternative to sugar-laden icings. I try to utilize yogurt in as many applications as possible because of it’s many health benefits- full of calcium, probiotics, which are great for boosting the immune system and helping protect against ulcers and other digestive issues.
Vanilla Yogurt Frosting
- 1 32oz container plain greek style yogurt, strained
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4- 1/2 cup honey
For best results, strain yogurt overnight to 24hrs to remove any excess moisture for a more cream cheese like texture. Here are some tips.
- In a large bowl, whisk together strained yogurt, vanilla and honey. Add in enough honey to reach desired sweetness.
- Frost cake or use a fruit dip.
I use a yogurt cheese maker, I think it is a great investment and use it alot. Strained yogurt can be used to make dips and is a great replacement for mayonnaise and sour cream in recipes.
