  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon plain gelatin
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup powered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Place water in a small microwave-safe bowl.
  • Sprinkle gelatin evenly over the top of the water. Avoid having any large clumps. Do not stir.
  • Let the gelatin sit for three minutes.
  • Microwave for seven seconds or until the gelatin dissolves.
  • Whisk together yogurt, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
  • Stir in prepared gelatin.
  • Place in the fridge for at least three hours.
  • Remove and stir until smooth.
  • Spread on baked goods.


For a twist, try using flavored Greek yogurt in this frosting. Keep in mind that flavored Greek yogurt is typically sweetened so you'll want to cut back on the amount of sugar you add to the frosting.
This frosting can only be spread, not piped, and it must be kept refrigerated.
