Nevertheless, it doesn't matter what we call it. I'm just happy we have THM versions to call something.
Here is a collection of frostings I have accumulated over the past year or so. I think it's a fairly complete collection.
This makes a nice white icing. You can use this on most cakes in place of buttercream icing.
8 oz Heavy Whipping Cream
6 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp of Vanilla
4 Tbsp of Xylitol
Whip all ingredients until it makes a nice icing consistency.
If you whip it longer, you can put a little in a dish, top with sliced
berries, and eat it with a spoon. We call this Chocolate Mousse
Cream Cheese Icing
2 Tbsp of Softened Butter
2 Tbsp of Browned Butter*
1/2 cup of Cream Cheese
4 Tbsp of Powdered Xylitol
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, optional
Whip both butters and the cream cheese together until well mixed. Add xylitol, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice. Whip until fluffy (won't be as fluffy as the
real fake thing)
If you don't want to bother browning butter, don't. Just use a total of 4 tbsp of butter.
If your making something that won't blend well with pumpkin pie spice, don't add it.
Peanut Butter Icing
4 Tbsp of Peanut Butter
8 Tbsp of Heavy Cream
Sweetener to taste
Whip all ingredients in an electric mixer until it 'fluffs' up.
Mocha Cream Frosting
1 cup of Heavy Cream
1 tsp of Instant Coffee
1/3 cup of Xyltol
1/4 cup of Cocoa Powder
Mix heavy cream and instant coffee in an electric mixer bowl. Stir slowly to help the coffee dissolve.
Add xylitol and cocoa powder and whip to a frosting consistency.
Coconut Whipped Cream
This recipe is from the Trim Healthy Mama Book. I can't type it here due to copyright laws, but I wanted to mention it here because it fits the catagory well.
Is there any type of icing/frosting I missed? Leave me a comment and maybe I can come up with something!
