  • 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


  • Using an electric stand or hand mixer, cream the shortening on a medium speed for about 30 seconds.
  • Then, add half of the powdered sugar and half of the milk and mix for another 30 seconds.
  • 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!
