Apple and Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz (1 cup) cream cheese

4 oz (1/2 cup) sugar free apple juice concentrate

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  1. Soften the cream cheese as described above.
  2. Simply whisk the cream cheese with the fruit juice concentrate and vanilla extract until creamy!
  3. Alternatively, try mixing the softened cream cheese with your baby’s favourite pureed fruit.

Sugar Free Frosting with Yogurt and Pineapple

8 oz (1 cup) natural yogurt

2 oz (1/4 cup) crushed pineapple

  1. First, you need to drain both the pineapple and the yogurt.
  2. Draining yogurt takes some time – so you need to start the day before you need the frosting. Once the yogurt is drained, it has quite a firm texture – making it ideal for the job in hand!

To drain yogurt…

  1. Place 4 layers of cheesecloth in a colander and sit the colander on top of a bowl.
  2. Pour the yogurt into the colander.
  3. Place the colander and bowl in the refrigerator and leave overnight.

To make your sugar free frosting, simply combine the drained yogurt with the drained pineapple, stirring carefully until mixed.

Is It Safe to Use Stevia?

A woman making sugar free frosting - ideal for your baby's first birthday cake!

A visitor to our site told us how she combines strained yogurt with stevia to make a sugar free frosting for cakes.

If you haven’t come across it before, stevia is a South American shrub with 300 times the sweetness of sugar.

It is used as a sweetener in many parts of Asia, South America and Israel and was approved by the EU as a sweetener for food use in July 2011.

Currently, however, there are no guidelines or recommendations as to the use of stevia in food intended for your baby.

If you’d like to use stevia in your baby food recipes, please do check with your doctor first.
