Maple Syrup Frosting


  • 1/2 cup dairy free shortening
  • 1/2 cup dairy free margarine
  • 4 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 24 T. dairy-free milk


  1. With a hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle blade, whip the shortening together until creamy.
  2. Add the sugar in and beat until incorporated.
  3. Add maple syrup and enough soymilk to make a thick spreadable consistency. This makes enough for piping on, you’ll have leftovers if you spread it on with a knife.


I used Silk Coconut milk, Blue Bonnet Lactose Free, and Spectrum Palm Oil Shortening as my milk, margarine, and shortening today. Read my posts on Dairy-Free Butter Alternatives and Dairy-Free Milk Alternatives for ideas.
