This Cream Cheese Protein Frosting is so good, it needs its own post. Make it without having anything to frost. Eat it with a little spoon out of a shot glass. You’re welcome. ;)

I made this to go with our Pumpkin Protein Cake, and the combination is phenomenal! It’s the kind of protein treat you seem to work into your macros for every meal, until there’s no more cake left. That good.

  • 1 package Neufchâtel cheese (8oz or 224g)

Notes
A note about substitutions: A whey/casein blend can be used in place of the whey, but you may need to add some water or milk to get the desired creamy texture.
Neufchâtel cheese is marketed as low-fat cream cheese, and can be found in most grocers next to the cream cheese.
