People always ask me how to make sugar free Stevia Cream Cheese Frosting.
Stevia Cream Cheese Frosting
I post mostly recipes that are sugar free.
In those recipes, I usually call for a sugar substitute. While my usual go-to for a sugar alternative may be Splenda, I also use Stevia when I bake. Many of my readers express a desire for me to use other sugar alternatives as well.
Stevia is a favorite sugar alternative to many of my readers.
I can see why- because it is a more natural alternative to sugar. It is a sweetener and also a sugar substitute that is extracted from the leaves of a plant. People like this product because it is a more natural alternative.
I like that you can do a lot with this sweetener.
Almost anything that you can do with any other sugar alternative can be done with this. You do not need to use as much of this product as well. I list sugar alternative ingredients in terms of 'equivalent' as in equivalent to sugar which is why it is important to know how much of this product to actually use in the recipe.
Cream cheese frosting is a popular frosting to make.
Probably the most popular cake to frost with a cream cheese based frosting would be carrot cake. However, a cream cheese frosting can be used for many other cakes and cupcakes as well. If you like cream cheese frosting but, you do not like all of the sugar, you will like this alternative.

If you are as sensitive to sugar like I am, especially in the high doses that a frosting may bring, you may be happy this this. I am showing you how to use something other than Splenda in sweetening this frosting.
By the way, you can easily find Stevia on Amazon. You can find various brands of it there as well.
The recipe for Stevia Cream Cheese Frosting
I balance my recipe using Greek Yogurt. However, you will also find that Greek Yogurt that is flavored is also a great option. If you like a flavored cream cheese frosting then you can omit the vanilla extract in this recipe and you can use a flavored Greek Yogurt instead. Hence, there are many ways to alter the taste of this.
What you will need to make this recipe.
- Cream Cheese- 8 ounce package softened - can be low fa.t
- Greek Yogurt -6-8 ounces- can be a flavored container .
- Stevia start at 1 tsp and add another if needed ) .
- Vanilla Extract- 1 tsp- (this is optional if your yogurt is flavored.
How to make this recipe.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Test for sweetness to determine if more sweetener is needed. Stevia goes a long way in this recipe. I find that whipping the frosting helps it get a better height.
