I literally NEVER leave comments on recipes but I had to leave one for this recipe because when I tell you I am in SHOCK…
It literally just tastes like cream cheese frosting. This is coming from someone who does not like the taste of protein at all.
I did modify just a bit. I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor. So excited to use this as a dip for strawberries this week.
Love it Chrys!!! Glad you liked it.
You should have a recipe cost listed to all your recipes. I’ve noticed them in some of them but not all of them have the cost listed.
Thanks for the feedback Shahad! I’ll try to estimate from now on (whenever I remember)!
Do you suggest casein or whey? Thanks!
I’m DYING TO TRY THIS FROSTING!!
But… I’m in Australia and can’t find cool whip. No-one knows what it is when I ask either.
So, is there a substitute? If so, what?
Hi Alex! It’s a thicker whipped topping. It does give it a bit of a better texture but you don’t really need it. I’m releasing a new frosting video this week so if you want you can wait for some of those ideas!
Ok, well, this was awesome. Had it with the protein pumpkin brownie 🙂
Glad you liked it CK!
Seriously amazing. Why does anyone ever eat normal frosting??
Haha! I ask myself this every time…
