Light, fluffy and rich Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting made with Greek yogurt and maple syrup. Low sugar and amazing on carrot cake, banana bread, and pancakes!


  • 8oz block of full fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer and beat on medium speed for a few minutes, or until it’s smooth and fluffy, scraping down the edges as needed.
  2. Enjoy on carrot cake baked oatmeal, lemon blueberry muffins, banana bread, and pumpkin muffins. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.


  • This recipe yields about 2 cups of frosting, or enough for a dozen cupcakes or muffins.
  • To make more of an icing that you can drizzle, simply thin a portion in a separate bowl with milk and mix until smooth.
