Protein Frosting

A super quick easy way to make a frosting to layer between pancakes, top cupcakes, rice cakes the possibilities are endless. Also, a great way to get an extra bit of protein and create a macro-friendly sweet treat.

It depends on what kind of thickness you are looking for if you want a very thick frosting I would edge towards 15g grams. Just measure out your yoghurt and gently fold the powder until combined!

Icing

I have experimented with this one, have you ever found that sometimes on pancakes or cakes you fancy a little runny icing? Yoghurt alone is a little thick for this purpose ( I am by no means saying this tip is the equivalent to icing) That being said to make yoghurt like icing consistency adding a little milk to loosen the texture and you can get creative by adding some flavour drops to make a tasty drizzle.
