  1. This is a great recipe! i used Swerve 0 calorie powdered sugar instead of real sugar and fat free cream cheese and it’s delicious. Thanks

  2. This frosting is amazing!!! The only thing I question is that when I put in the numbers I get 2.5 points per serving. Am I doing something wrong?

  3. Can’t wait to make this recipe, it sounds delicious. Could the powered sugar be substituted with Swerve Confectioners sugar, if so how much?
    Thank you!

  4. OMG I made a wieght watcher freindly cake for my mom, and put the frosting on top and OMG it was so good. Tip: if you don’t like making a mess then don’t make it cause for the amount of powder sugar you add, it makes a little mess but in the end is is really good. So overall I give is 5 stars and thx for putting this resipe online!!!

  5. Can you use erithrotol or some other sugar substitute?

  6. I made pumpkin cupcakes and iced them with this, delicious!  I made the frosting go further with 24 cupcakes and it brought it down to 2 points!  

  7. Anyone have thoughts for what to add to make it coffee flavored?  

    • Add a Via or 2 from Starbucks!

    • Even though I am a kid, I might have an idea. Maybe coffee grounds or maybe something mocha flavored. Oh this is just coming to me now, you could make coffee ( if your a coffee drinker ) and add like 1 teaspoon and my mom sugggess this: you can add a coffee liqueur such as Kahlua coffee or Bailey’s espresso. Let me know how it turn out and pls reply to my commet thx –
