Nothing goes better with carrot cake than rich creamy frosting, I lightened it all up and I used Alpro soya yohurt in stead of full fat cream cheese and it worked incrediably well. I was sent some coupons by the people Alpro to try out some of there products . oh my, from my first spoonful of this soya yoghurt I was hooked! I absolutely adore it, its thick and creamy and revolutionized my breakfast!
