  • Yield: ~4 cups of frosting


Easy to make and deliciously rich vegan frosting!


  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • ½ cup vegan butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons of milk, I’ve made this with almond milk and a thicker coconut milk and both worked out great


  1. Make the frosting by combining all of the ingredients minus the milk into the bowl of a stand mixer. You can also do this in a large bowl with a hand mixer.
  2. Whisk on medium speed and add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time. Wait to add the next tablespoon until the last one has been combined.
  3. Continue to whisk until the frosting becomes lighter in color and is fluffy and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Use on your favorite desserts and ENJOY!
