Nothing like a YUMMY and FRESH-out-the-oven funfetti or strawberry cupcake on your birthday, huh?!? Well, at least in our house. We LOVE funfetti and strawberry flavored cupcakes. The hubby’s birthday was yesterday and I knew I wanted to bake a batch of cupcakes with a delicious healthy frosting recipe. The good news? I found one worth sharing!
I love to give credit where it’s due so I’ll link the original recipe here. The only reason I modified it was because I prefer a subtle hint of sweet, not a fan of sweet frosting. (And when I read to use one cup of powdered sugar, I was like, “No way, Jose.” But this is a judgement-free zone – you do you, honey.)
Here is what you’ll need to make my version:
2 cups of non-fat plain greek yogurt (I used 3 Chobani cups.)
4 tablespoons of white powdered sugar, or to taste (for a sweeter flavor, add more)
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
Drain the greek yogurt by placing a strainer over a bowl. Add the yogurt on the strainer and wrap it with plastic wrap to cover the yogurt.
Place the yogurt in the fridge to drain. The recommended time to drain is at least 2 hours but overnight is preferred. (I drained the yogurt for two days but not on purpose…I just couldn’t finish the process sooner.)
Once the yogurt is drained, add it to a clean bowl. Next, you will add the remaining ingredients – powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix until the mixture thickens.
Let the frosting begin! Be sure to wait until the cupcakes (or cake) are cool enough to frost, otherwise, the frosting will melt away.
I used a zip blog bag to create cute designs – or least I tried to create cute designs, LOL!
If you decide to try this frosting, please let me know your thoughts! The hubby liked it so you can bet I will continue to use this recipe in the future.
Can you believe Cinco de Mayo is only one week away?!? Sayyyy wuuuuuut?!? Ironically, I’ve created my version of a tasty strawberry mint margarita just in time for the occasion. This recipe was created last week on a whim and shared the process through Instagram stories! I had no clue how it would turn out but thank goodness it turned out to be delish!
Sharing tonight’s delicious dinner because why not?!? Most of us are at home cooking and exploring new (and old) recipes in the kitchen so maybe you can add this one to the list! It’s super easy and tasty.
We have been craving burgers since Sunday. Literally. We tried ordering some from one of our favorite spots, Burger Joint, but they put us on hold for a very long time. Twice, lol. So we gave up. (No hard feelings, Burger Joint, we are glad you’re still busy during this time. We know how delicious you are!)
Anyway, I decided to buy the ingredients to create delicious jalapeño gouda cheese burgers…with baked potato wedges.
Where are my rice lovers?!? This one is for you! I shared this side dish recipe last week and received requests to share how to make it. It’s quite delish and easy to make. (And I must admit, Jose’s favorite rice. Yep, you heard it here first. He loves this rice over the Mexican rice! *gasps*)
Needless to say, it’s a favorite in the #sojohome and I am so excited to share it with you!
Happy, happy hump day! Hope you had a lovely day. I know things are tough right now but we can still manage to control our attitude and make the best of hard circumstances. My intention through this whole thing is to focus on positivity and spread it through my blog or IG. (So if you’re seeking for a little light – I gotchu, gf!)
