Want to make your desserts a healthy option and worry free, regarding putting on calories, weight and all that? Here are a few good sugar-free frosting recipes you must try. Keep reading.
Imagine your dessert without frosting on it... nahh!!! I know it's difficult. But "everything that is sweet is not good" and definitely not healthy if you are on a diet (weight loss regime) or diabetic. But, we can make frosting, a healthy option too. How about fat-free and sugar-free frosting options?
The main ingredient of any frosting is sugar, because sugar is something that makes your frosting sweet and yummy. Of course, rich ingredients such as eggs, butter, nuts, and cheese enhance the taste. But the whole task is to make the frosting guilt free. I mean one should not feel guilty of putting on calories, weight and all that jazz, while enjoying them.
The use of sugar substitutes is a great option. Maybe we can use protein powder and fat-free butter. Or we can use fruit juices in the frosting, to give it a sweet element and make it healthy too.
