Sweet Vegan Vanilla Frosting 

Makes enough frosting for about 18 cupcakes or a 2 layer cake


  • 1 cup Non-Hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tb. Non-Dairy Milk  (I use almond – the whiter in color the better)
  • A scant 1/4 tsp. Salt


  1. Using an electric stand or hand mixer, cream the shortening on a medium speed for about 30 seconds.
  2. Then, add half of the powdered sugar and half of the milk and mix for another 30 seconds.
  3. Next, add the salt and remaining sugar and milk.  Mix again for another 30 seconds. If you feel the frosting should be slightly thicker, add a spoonful or so more of powdered sugar.  For slightly thinner frosting, add a splash of milk – but be careful – a little goes a long way!
