  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 2.5 cups 1x


  • 1 cup room temperature Earth Balance brand vegan butter*
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, use organic if possible
  • 2 teaspoons almond milk, soy milk or other nut milk, or substitute water
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Be sure all of your ingredients are room temperature.
  2. Place all ingredients with 1/2 of the powdered sugar in a large bowl and cream together with a mixer.
  3. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and continue to mix until well combined and frosting consistency.
  4. Store it in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator up to a week.
  5. Just like most frosting, if it’s been in the refrigerator, let it sit at room temperature about 10 minutes to slightly soften to help make frosting your cookies or cupcakes a breeze.
