This Greek yogurt cream cheese filling is a great way to slim-down your favorite treat. Use is in place of traditional cream cheese icing to make pumpkin roll, carrot cake or other dessert.

I love when I make things and they turn out tasty the first time! That’s what happened when I made this cream cheese filling. I needed a filling for my protein packed pumpkin roll, so I substituted reduced fat cream cheese for full-fat, and greek yogurt in place of butter. It’s thinner than traditional icing, but it has a fantastic cream cheese flavor and works great when used as a drizzle, dip or filling.
