A thick, sweet and creamy Cream Cheese Frosting made with Protein Powder that’s actually healthy! Use this sugar-free treat as a spread or even pipe it. It holds shape and the possibilities are endless!

This frosting is so good, it deserved a post of its own.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed yet, but I’m really into the whole concept of using protein powder as a powdered sugar sub. So when I saw a pretty frosted cupcake the other day, I knew what my next use-case would be!

This cream cheese frosting can be used anywhere you’d use a regular - on top of a carrot cake, spiced cupcakes, red velvet anything, even cookies maybe!
