Frosting is a must-have on most cakes. The frosting provides a creamy sweetness to the flaky, sponge-like cake bottom. The only problem with the frosting is that it is often loaded with sugar, which makes it unhealthy to eat. Since cake isn’t cake without the frosting, you need to create your own healthier frosting at home.


Yogurt Frosting

In a medium-sized bowl, place 8 oz. of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt. Add one tsp. of honey and half a cup of powdered sugar. Work the ingredients together with a whisk until they become thick. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it in the refrigerator for half an hour. Spread over a cake, cupcakes, muffins or flavored bread.


Cream Cheese Frosting

Set out an 8-oz. package of fat-free cream cheese an hour or two before you’re ready to make the frosting so it can soften up. In a small bowl, add 1 oz. of instant chocolate pudding mix and 1 3/4 cup of fat free milk. Whisk together until thick. Set the bowl in the refrigerator for five minutes. Then add the cream cheese. Mix together. Stir in 8 oz. of marshmallow dip and 1 oz. of instant chocolate pudding mix. Once combined, spread over your cake or group of cupcakes.


Honey Frosting

Place a saucepan over high heat. Pour in 1 cup of honey and wait for it to boil. Remove the honey from the heat and get out a small bowl. Place 2 egg whites, 1/4 tsp. of salt, and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract in the bowl. Mix together on high speed for three to five minutes. Add the honey and mix for another five minutes or until the ingredients look like frosting. Spread over your cake or set of cupcakes.
