Non-Dairy Buttercream Frosting
Author: Yvonne Cornell
  • ⅔ cup plant-based butter spread (I use the Earth Balance Original buttery spread)
  • 4½ - 5½ cups powdered sugar depending on your sweet tooth
  • a few teaspoons of almond milk for thinning the frosting as necessary
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Cream together the vegan buttery spread, vanilla extract and salt in an electric mixer on low speed.
  2. Add half the powdered sugar and mix until smooth and thick.
  3. Add a teaspoon or more of almond milk to thin the frosting before adding the remainder of the powdered sugar.
  4. Mix until smooth and light.
  5. Add more milk if necessary for a smooth and spreadable consistency before whipping vigorously for remaining few minutes until the frosting is light and fluffy.
