Alyssa, Brittany and I could easily become frosting addicts. I’m sure it is my fault that the two of them love fluffy frosting so much. You see, each time I made a cake when they were little girls, I would always make extra frosting and store it in an airtight container. Whenever we had a piece of cake, we would put more frosting on top even though the cake already had double frosting .

Eventually we all just started eating the frosting out of the container. Whenever we had a hankering for frosting, we would just take a clean spoon out of the drawer and get a spoonful of frosting to eat s.l.o.w.l.y. kind of like you would a lollipop.

Like I said, we love frosting and we are all professional frosting consumers. After one lick, we can tell you if the frosting is yummy or not up to par.

There is an endless list of foods and things that taste delicious with frosting on it or that can be dipped into frosting. Foods such as:

With so many uses for frosting, I made it my mission years ago to create the best and most fluffy frosting on the planet. My cream cheese frosting is indeed the best and most fluffy cream cheese frosting you will ever eat. There is even an added bonus to my fluffy frosting. Not only is it the best and most fluffy cream cheese frosting you’ve ever eaten, it is also grain free, gluten free and not too sweet. How’s that for fantastic?

Did I tell you that I love frosting?

Not only do I love eating my fluffy frosting, I also love to make it because the process is easy, fast and fun. Recipes that are easy, fast and fun can be replicated and enjoyed by many people. So let me share this wonderful recipe before you salivate all over my blog.

Best Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting, Grain Free, Gluten Free And Not Too Sweet

Don’t let the word “frosting” intimidate you. I’m sure that you will make this frosting like a pro and it won’t be runny or taste gross.

Yes, I’m totally sure.

Put the butter and cream cheese in a mixing bowl with the whipping attachment. If you’re in a hurry you can put the butter, cream cheese, half the sugar and salt in the bowl at one time. Today I was in a hurry, so all the ingredients were plopped into the bowl at once.

Begin whipping the ingredients just until they start to combine.

Add the pure vanilla extract to the mixture in the bowl and start whipping.

When it starts to get a little fluffy, about a minute into whipping, turn the mixer speed down to the lowest setting and add half of the remaining sugar. Whip for another minute and if the frosting appears not that fluffy or thick, add the rest of the sugar. I usually use all the sugar. Now crank up the mixer speed and whip and whip and whip the frosting for about three to five more minutes. When you turn off the mixer, the frosting will be super fluffy.

All that’s left to do is spread it on top of your favorite dessert or dip something in it. As a reminder, don’t forget to lick the whipping beater. You don’t really want to waste any frosting do you?

Your Best Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting looks simply yummy, but don’t count on me to make this recipe. I would not have the willpower to eat only one spoonful. I know myself too well. I would end up eating the whole thing. Sometimes it is better to resist temptation and just abstain. I’ll enjoy your Best Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting vicariously by looking at the pictures and drooling! :)

If I could just find a substitute for the confectioner’s sugar, I would love to make this recipe. I’ve cut wheat and sugar from my diet. This recipe looks really good.

I’ve been looking for more gluten free recipes – not that we NEED to be gluten free (that I know of!) but I have definitely found that I feel much healthier when I avoid foods that contain wheat. And this one isn’t SOOO sweet, which is one of the reasons I have avoided frostings in the past. Thanks so much for sharing!
