Rich Vegan Buttercream Frosting (Coconut-Free)


Remember those Amazing Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes? Well, here’s the recipe for the frosting I used for those bad boys. This recipe is based on Joy of Cooking‘s Buttercream Frosting recipe. Instead of butter,  I used Earth Balance Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Buttery Spread, and I increased the vanilla. I promise, this vegan buttercream frosting will not disappoint!


This is a creamy, buttery frosting. If you’re looking for a stiff, less buttery/more fluffy frosting, you can add more powdered sugar and rice milk.  It freezes really well too!



1/4 cup Earth Balance buttery spread

2 cups organic powdered sugar

1 T. vanilla extract

1 T. rice milk

pinch of salt



Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy (2-3 minutes).
