Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Icing Dessert

Greek Yogurt Protein Cream Cheese Icing Dessert

I had a strong craving for something silky, dense and dessert like the other day. I had a "need to consume asap" tub of Greek Yogurt, which I decided to incorporate into my nightly dessert. The result? HEAVEN.
It tasted like Cream Cheese Frosting on Carrot cake, and the GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread make it even more dessert like. Thick, rich and satisfying! ENJOY:

- Greek Yogurt (I used Liberte 0% m.f - review to come)
- GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread (their Sprinkles would work as well- feel free to use any bran/fiber based biscuit/cookie or cereal- Graham or Arrowroot cookies would be fantastic, Protein Cakes: Anything dry.)
-Sugar Free Davinci (I used Sugar Free Coconut and Vanilla) (Torani or any other sf  would work)
- PGX GRANULES (key for thickening it up)

Mix the yogurt with the sweetener, cinnamon, Maple extract, a few crumbled Bran Crispbreads/cookies. Add PGX Granules and SF Syrup. STIR. The consistency should be a little more runny than regular Greek Yogurt as the PGX Granules expand and absorb the moisture (add 1/2scoop or more depending on how much liquid you are adding).
Throw into fridge and wait about 5-15min (or more depending on how long you can hold out!). Keep adding Syrup, PGX etc until you reach the consistency. The longer you let it sit, the thicker and richer it will be. Add remaining crackers/cookies/protein cakes etc.
ENJOY. Top with more Cinnamon, nut butter, protein powder icing etc if you want.


  1. Awesome recipe!! I've only recently discovered Liberte 0% Greek yogurt and am completely addicted, it's such a great protein source, and it tastes like you're eating whipped cream, doesn't get much better than that :) Keep up the great recipes!

  2. Wonderful, unique recipe! I love how you come up with these amazing concoctions...if I could eat yogurt I would definitely try this!

  3. Ameena, you can do this with Goat yogurt (which is so healthy and so easy to digest; currently doing a study on goat proteins etc), and it seems to help people who cannot injest dairy. Soy Yogurt and Coconut yogurt would work just as well!
    Kat thank you so much for the compliment! Greatly appreciated, and I highly recommend making this. I think the key was that it was "older" and therefore thicker (the moisture had evaporated more than when it is fresh). Davinci Pumpkin/Gingerbread would be great in this!


    girl- i cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and support. your comments seriously always speak straight to me from the Lord- its amazing. I am so blessed to have a sister like you in Christ. THANK YOU!!! I hope you are doing amazing.. love you!

  5. Wow, thanks for sharing this recipe. :) Just by looking at the pictures I am sure that that would really taste good! I might try making this one tomorrow. :D

  6. Wow, what a recipe! Thanks for posting this, I am going to give this a try sometime. I have such a huge sweet tooth and am a greek yogurt fanatic, it seems like a match made in heaven!
