- Yogurt - I used Greek Yogurt, but you can also use regular non-Greek yogurt or dairy free yogurt of choice such as almond, coconut, oat milk based yogurts. Just be sure to read the notes, since other yogurts aren't as thick as Greek Yogurt and need more powdered almond butter to thicken the frosting.
- Unsweetened Powdered Almond Butter - Powdered Almond Butter (like this one from Barney Butter) is a defatted powdered almond butter that's low in fat, low in calories and high in protein. Like powdered peanut butter, it's meant to be mixed with water and spread onto toasts and the like, but we'll be using it as a thickener for our "frosting" recipe.
- 10/10/22 update: PB2 is an acceptable substitute (you can get it on Amazon, here, but I found that PB2 powder is darker and browner (whereas Barney Butter powder has a more pale / whitish color). If you want the pink color of the strawberry to show through, I'd recommend the Barney Butter brand!
- Strawberry puree - you'll need strawberry puree for this recipe. To make, blend fresh strawberries in a small blender.

How to Make Low Fat Strawberry Greek Yogurt Frosting
In a clean bowl, mix all ingredients together and stir until no visible clumps of powder remain
To make a thicker frosting, add more powdered almond butter. For thinner frosting, add more yogurt or strawberry puree.
For best results, transfer the bowl to the fridge and cool for about an hour for the frosting to set.

Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- Try using raspberry or blueberry puree instead of strawberry puree
- Add a half teaspoon of lemon zest for a brighter flavored frosting
- Add vanilla extract for more flavor, or other extracts and flavorings. Try vanilla bean paste, almond extract, coffee extract or maple extract. Maybe some citrus flavors such as lemon or orange extract. Peppermint extract also works.
Just keep in mind that some extracts contain alcohol, and since this is a no-bake recipe, the alcohol won't have a chance to fully evaporate. If serving this to kids, or if you're sensitive to alcohol, be sure to use non-alcoholic extracts or flavorings. Here are some non-alcoholic brands, here: Non-alcoholic peppermint extract, non-alcoholic vanilla extract
