Dairy Free Buttercream is a perfect alternative for Butter Based frosting.
Do you love frosting? Can you sit down with a spoon and just eat it by itself? You might be like Leonard on my favorite show Big Bang Theory and be lactose intolerant or have an allergy to milk.
That’s why I created this dairy free buttercream frosting recipe post. I use it with my dairy free chocolate ganache and gluten free chocolate cupcakes. Here are a few of my other recipes for you to enjoy.
Vanilla Dairy Free Buttercream Frosting
There are so many people that have allergies and want to avoid certain ingredients. But sometimes you just don’t know what you can substitute or know which one to use. I had to make some cupcakes last week that were dairy free and gluten free. They wanted a chocolate cupcake and a chocolate ganache and vanilla buttercream frosting.
The only ingredient I had to go and get was the earth balance butter sticks. They do cost a little more than dairy butter, but they have the same consistency and therefore, make it easier to make the frosting so it’s not too runny. They taste pretty much the same as regular buttercream so I really enjoy cupcakes with this frosting and hope you will like the recipe too.
