Sugar-free Cream Cheese Frosting

 

Sometimes you want cake!  I know I do.  But the problem becomes that frosting is mostly sugar.  Or is it?  This recipe proves that you can make a sugary tasting frosting without adding the actual Sugar.  And from my calculation, this is 1 net carb!  This goes nicely on the cup of Chocolate Cake recipe!

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. Cream Cheese softened
  • 14 cup + 2 tsp of zero-calorie spoon-able Truvía
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coconut or almond milk (optional)
***or 14 zero-calorie Truvía® Natural Sweetener or Splenda Natural Packets

Directions

  1. Place cream cheese and Truvía®  into medium mixing bowl.
  2. Mix on low speed for 1 minute to combine.
  3. Add the vanilla.
  4. Mix on low speed 1 minute until creamy and blended.
  5. Add 1 tsp of milk, if necessary, for thinner spreading consistency.
  6. Spread on cooled cake.

*This frosting has 70 calories and 0 grams of sugar per serving compared to the sugar sweetened version that has 120 calories and 13 grams of sugar per serving.
