Vegan Fluffy Chocolate Frosting

YIELD: 2 Cups

Better than the stuff from a can, but just as addictive. Top your favorite cupcakes or use as a filling in between cookies, like the Vanilla Wafers.


  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup non hydrogenated shortening
  • ¼ cup softened non dairy margarine
  • ¼ cup non dairy milk
  • 2½ cups confectioner’s sugar


  1. In a large mixing bowl fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the cocoa powder, shortening, and margarine until smooth. Gradually add the non dairy milk and confectioners sugar and then beat on high speed until fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Makes enough for one sheet cake; double recipe if making for a layer cake. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
