Kids, and adults, who haven’t grown up on sugar will appreciate this frosting’s subtle sweetness.
I use lakanto here because it’s a sweetener that doesn’t feed harmful yeast or bacteria in the body. Making it a great sugar substitute for anyone with yeast or bacterial issues. Diabetics too, because lakanto doesn’t influence blood sugar or insulin release.
As with many of my recipes, I created this while I was on stage 1 of The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal my yeast overgrowth. I wanted some sort of topping for muffins I was making, so I made this one…
