PB2 Yogurt Frosting

Have you ever wanted to top your oatmeal with a pillow of creamy frosting? But you don’t want to give up your beloved peanut butter?


Here’s a great compromise. This topping is easy to make, requiring just plain yogurt and PB2 (and a drop of vanilla extract, if you’d like). I envision this best as a topping for overnight oatmeal. You could try it on warm porridge, but I’m not sure how the yogurt would stand up to the heat and steam!


I used a new brand of nondairy yogurt called Forager, which is cashew-based. It was quite nice, almost as good as Anita’s Creamline. Also, I bought the whole 24 oz tub from Whole Foods for only $4.99. That’s insane! To put that in perspective, the tub of Anita’s was $10.99. The texture of Forager was a bit loose (I prefer a thicker, Greek-style yogurt), but the flavor was quite pleasant. I will buy again.

As for adding the PB2, I gave a range because you might want to add more or less depending on how thick your yogurt is. For example, since I had a runnier yogurt, I added extra PB2 to thicken it up. And FYI, you can definitely eat this plain, like yogurt. It’s superb. 🙂

    Thank you for doing another yogurt recipe! About using it as topping, I put yogurt on hot oatmeal all the time, and it doesn’t make the yogurt turn sour. The only time I had that happen was when I added the yogurt during the cooking process. So far, it’s been fine when I add the yogurt after the oatmeal is fixed.

    Hopefully, that will give you and your readers more flexibility with this recipe. I look forward to trying it soon!

    I made this with plain dairy Greek yogurt and 1 T PB2. It was good! I’m still trying to use up a supply of Gingerbread oatmeal packets someone gave me last Christmas, so this made a fun topping. I like to complement the taste of sweet oatmeal with an unsweetened topping (and vice versa), so this recipe was ideal.
