Strawberry Frosting

I don’t know about you, but I love frosting. Funny thing is I am not a sweets person but I love to make things with frosting on them. They are so festive! Typically, when you think of frosting you think animal ingredients right? Butter specifically. Well, I guess this post is really an ode to Earth Balance.

Earth Balance is a buttery spread that comes in sticks as well as in a tub. It also comes in shortening form which is a bit firmer and less flavored. I use a combination of the buttery sticks and the shortening for this recipe. It is easy, quick and insanely delicious. You will need either a good hand mixer or I use my big stand mixer.

1/2 cup Earth Balance buttery spread (one stick)

1/3 cup Earth Balance shortening

Mix together until fluffy

Add 3 1/2 cups organic powdered sugar. You will probably need to sift it since the organic sugar tends to be clumpy

Be careful because the powdered sugar can go everywhere!

Slowly add 1/4 cup soy milk or soy creamer (coconut creamer works great!), 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1/4 cup mashed strawberries.

Beat on high until light and fluffy.

That’s it! Then spread it on what ever you want; cupcakes, toast, a cookie!

I made the vanilla cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.

I sprinkled on some chocolate chips and strawberry pieces. Que yummo!
