Ready to make some Greek yogurt frosting? To make this recipe you’ll need three tablespoons of Cabot two percent Plain Greek yogurt or Cabot plain Greek-yogurt—if you’re looking to cut down on the calories, we suggest going for the former over the latter. You’ll also need a half-teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, a quarter teaspoon of xanthan gum and 2 – 2¼ cups of confectioner’s sugar, depending on how sweet you want the frosting to be. Making the recipe is very straightforward: you should start by placing the yogurt and the vanilla into a medium-sized bowl. Then stir in the gum, and add the sugar too. We suggest using an electric mixer, set on high speed. Once you’re done, the final result should be stiff but spreadable.
Greek yogurt can be used to make a wide range of frostings and creams. If you’d like to make a cream recipe, we suggest making our whipped yogurt cream recipe. Cabot is a cooperative of 800 farm families, and collectively, we’ve been making dairy products for generations. From our sour creams to our cheddar cheeses, we take a great deal of pride in crafting a wide range of and award-winning dairy products. We hope you enjoyed our Greek yogurt-frosting recipe.

Taste is fine, but this is a glaze more than a frosting. Nothing I did made it stiff enough to use as a true frosting.
Icing is okay, but overly sweet for my taste.
As a yogurt lover I love yogurt frosting very much. I made sugar free version of yogurt frosting http://wellnessrecipe.tumblr.com/post/151828385493/yogurt-frosting and it goes great with coconut chocolate muffins 🙂
Icing is similar to a thick glaze, flavorful and no fat. It would be helpful if your nutrition facts included what the serving size is.
