Fluffy Low-FODMAP Cream Cheese Frosting; Gluten-free, Lactose-free

Printer Friendly Version

Low-FODMAP cream cheese frosting is the perfect crown to any low-FODMAP cake.  In particular, my low-FODMAP Carrot Cake, low-FODMAP Pumpkin Bars, or low-FODMAP Red Velvet Cupcakes!

This low-FODMAP cream cheese frosting is easy to make, creamy and so delicious.  You can double the recipe for a multi-layered cake.  Using lactose-free cream cheese is perfect for the low-FODMAP diet!

I used Green Valley Organics lactose-free products, they are available at Whole Foods and Fresh Thyme markets near me.  But feel free to substitute if you have access to other lactose-free cream cheese.  However, be aware that soy based dairy-free cream cheeses and those made with cashews are not low-FODMAP.

If you want a low-FODMAP lemon flavored cream cheese frosting, you will want to see my latest low-FODMAP Lemon Blueberry Buttermilk Bundt Cake recipe.

Fluffy Low-FODMAP Cream Cheese Frosting; Gluten-free, Lactose-free

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Servings: 12

Makes enough for a standard 9 inch round cake or 12 cupcakes

For a double-layer cake or 24 cupcakes, double recipe

Prep time: 10 min


  • 1/2 cup dairy-free, low-FODMAP margarine or lactose-free butter (I used Green Valley lactose-free Organics Butter)
    • Note: due to low lactose levels found naturally in butter, you may also use regular butter for this recipe
  • 1/2 cup lactose-free cream cheese (I used Green Valley Organics Cream Cheese)
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Beat lactose-free butter or margarine with lactose-free cream cheese until smooth
  • Slowly add sugar until fluffy (be careful as the sugar can make a mess- I usually place a dish-towel over my mixer to protect the counter)
  • Adjust amount of sugar to your taste
  • Add vanilla and beat until smooth
