I am in love with this sugar free cream cheese frosting recipe.
A good frosting is a must in the life of a mom. With birthdays and get-togethers, cupcakes are always a hit to bring. I love that the individual portions are easy to handle and cut down on the mess. Cream cheese frosting is one that goes with just about any muffin or cupcakes, and well, let’s face it, who doesn’t love cream cheese?

Sugar free cream cheese frosting: a yummy and versatile cupcake topping
This sugar free cream cheese frosting whips up fast and is also gluten-free. We try to limit sugar when we can and the stevia used in this recipe works well to make it nice and sweet. But, if you have no issues with sugar, a few tablespoons of honey work like a charm.
I find that I can use this sugar free cream cheese frosting to frost 12 cupcakes when I am piping it on to make it look ‘fancy’. If I’m just spreading it on with a knife, this recipe will frost about 18 cupcakes. This is also about enough frosting to cover one 9×13 cake, but if you need enough to fill and frost a layer cake, double or even triple the recipe. (Leftovers are always delicious eaten straight from the fridge on a spoon!)
You can also make this a chocolate cream cheese frosting by adding a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder, and a little liquid (such as unsweetened almond milk) to get the frosting the correct consistency. Start with a teaspoon of liquid and slowly add more if needed.
Be sure to refrigerate any baked goods topped with this cream cheese frosting, since the dairy can spoil and it’s not full of sugar (which acts as a preservative).
