Irish You a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day the Irish Girl here is going to post a yummy recipe!

So, here's the recipe... and enjoy the pictures!!


Healthy Frosting

For this recipe you will need the following:

~1 8oz. package of Cream Cheese

~5 Tbsp. Honey (add more for desired taste)

~1/2 tsp. Vanilla
~2Tbsp. Butter

~Coloring: For the cookies (below) I used food coloring, but for some colors there are a few natural variations:

~Tan to Brown: Carob Powder (You could also try Cacao Powder)

~Pink: add beet juice or juice off pickled beets

~Yellow: annato butter color or turmeric

~Green: liquid cholorophyll

~Gray to Black: charcoal powder

To make the frosting: Simple blend until smooth and then chill in your refrigerator. Once it's chilled you can frost your cookies etc. and to store place in an airtight container and freeze. It's that easy and it delicious too!!


I love Ireland!

1) Making the Frosting: Honey and Butter

2) Add coloring

3) Someone simply must try it... Is there enough honey??

4) Make your cookies, cake, etc.

5) After the frosting has been chilled: spread it! This is the fun part!!


I hope you enjoyed the recipe and pictures!! Check back soon to see what we did with this frosting for desert on St. Patrick's Day!! :)

"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand."

-An old Irish Blessing
