Cream Cheese Frosting with Maple Syrup
8 oz (1 cup) cream cheese
4 oz (1/2 cup) pure maple syrup

Sugar Free Frosting with Yogurt and Pineapple

Place 4 layers of cheesecloth in a colander and sit the colander on top of a bowl.
Pour the yogurt into the colander.
Place the colander and bowl in the refrigerator and leave overnight.
To make your sugar free frosting, simply combine the drained yogurt with the drained pineapple, stirring
carefully until mixed.
