Creamy, Dreamy & Easy 'Diabetic-Friendly' Frosting
I really couldn't see using anything else for my family of diabetics and it generally works well with most of my diabetic baked goods. Besides, who doesn't like cream cheese? NOT ME!!!
OH! It works well as a fruit dip too!
*The cake is one my great-niece made for me last February for my birthday using my frosting recipe.
- 4 oz
- low-fat or fat free cream cheese
- 1/2 of 1 small
- box (4 serving size); fat-free/sugar- free, dry, instant pudding mix
- 16 oz
- 'sugar-free' or 'lite' - frozen whipped topping, thawed.
- 1 tsp
- almond extract or choose your favorite flavor (optional)
Recipe will Frost/serve:(1)-9" x 13" layer cake,(2)layer cake,(1)9" x 13" pan of brownies, or 24 + cupcakes.
OR make 2-3 cups fruit dip.
Add almond extract or choose your favorite flavor (Optional).
(Mixture will thicken as dry instant pudding is added to whipped topping/cream-cheese mixture, so alternating is recommended).
*As always, refrigerate and cover any cream-cheese frosting items including any leftovers.
*Makes a very good fruit-dip too!
