- 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.
- Peanut Butter Powder - PB powder is made by removing most of the oil from roasted peanuts and grinding them into a fine powder, resulting in a low-fat, high-protein alternative to traditional peanut butter. You can use brands like PB Fit, or PB2. I used a Sugar Free PB FIt powder for this recipe
- Granulated Sugar of Choice - to keep this recipe low carb, I used granulated monk fruit sweetener. You can also use granulated cane sugar
