Skinny Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

I love cream cheese frosting; but, not the fat and calories.  Here’s my recipe for low calorie, low fat frosting.


  • 1-8oz package fat-free cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) light margarine
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar


Beat cream cheese, margarine, sour cream in large bowl until smooth.  Mix in vanilla and cornstarch.  Gradually beat in powder sugar.  Makes 16 servings.
