DAIRY-FREE VANILLA FROSTING RECIPE
1/4 cup dairy-free butter
1/4 cup solid coconut oil or shortening
1-3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla (affiliate)
This can be made with soy-free & dairy-free margarine, as well.
Mix butter and coconut oil/shortening with a mixer.
Slowly add powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time.
Beat on high speed until icing consistency is reached. If it’s too thick, add dairy-free milk 1/4 tsp. at a time.
This can be a little temperamental depending on the season and room temperatures.
If it’s summer, you will do best to use chilled butter and coconut oil.
If it’s winter, room temp works and dairy-free milk may need added.
Store frosted cupcakes in the refrigerator.
