Try this protein-packed topping on your cupcakes!

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Beat chèvre, cream cheese, and butter together in a medium bowl until smooth.
- Slowly add the powdered sugar or maple syrup, combining well after each addition. Continue to beat for 1 to 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl. Add vanilla.
