Frosting
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons low fat cream cheese
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt

Method

Nicolette’s Tips

* Since there was no other fat source in the recipe, I opted to use full fat plain greek yogurt. To decrease the calories and fat content, you can use low fat greek yogurt or fat free greek yogurt.
