(High Protein) Healthful Cream Cheese Frosting (or Glaze)

It’s the little things…how many times have you heard that phrase?  But it’s true on so many levels and in so many contexts.  It’s the little rituals that you have with your loved ones that have the most meaning and hold the most space in your heart.  It’s the little adjustments in training and nutrition that set the gold medallists apart from the silver medallists.  And when it comes to food, it’s the little touches of flavour and presentation that can take a meal from merely mediocre to masterful.

I like to think that this healthful cream cheese frosting or glaze is one of those little things.  It’s the perfect little something extra that can be added to enhance just about any dessert, including protein muffins, carrot cake, cinnamon buns, apple pie…oh my!  Heck, it’s so good for you, you could even put it on your oatmeal.  No judgment!
