I love this cream cheese frosting because it is light, has only half the sugar and has zesty flavour. The frosting is quick and easy to prepare and will make a cheesecake, muffin or cupcake unforgettable. If you don’t have time to bake, spread the frosting over gluten-free cinnamon raisin bagel, the combination is intoxicating. Enjoy!
