Paleo “Cream Cheese” Frosting

The only thing I’ve ever really liked about cake is the frosting. I always wanted the corner piece with the most frosting. I’m not picky about the flavor, either. Any kind of frosting is fine by me. If I had to pick a favorite though, it would be cream cheese frosting.

My husband’s favorite kind of cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. For his birthday this year, I made carrot cake muffins. They would have been just muffins without the frosting. Frosting turned them into little cakes. I debated about just getting some regular old cream cheese, but my husband is even more into reading labels than I am, and he decided that cream cheese was just a little too processed. I’ve made cheesecake out of cashews for my Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bars, so I figured I would be able to create a frosting along those same lines.

Boy, oh, boy did I ever! This frosting turned out so good and so creamy and so cream cheesy! Good thing I had some muffins to frost or I would have just eaten it all with a spoon.

Perfect Frosting


Put everything into a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. I actually made half of this recipe, and it was just enough to frost 11 cupcakes. I think a whole recipe would be just right for a cake. Try not to eat it all before you get it on your cake or cupcakes…

Oh yeah…
