  • 1 stick of Earth Balance Vegan Sticks
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • In a stand mixer place the Earth Balance stick with the coconut oil until blended.
  • Add confectioners sugar 1 cup at a time.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Add the salt.
  • Stop the mixer, scrape the bowl and mix one more time.
  • Frost cupcake and place leftover frosting in an airtight container and refrigerate.


Using Refined Coconut oil gives it a neutral flavor. If you purchase unrefined oil, it will have a coconut taste to it. 
You can use regular confectioners sugar or use a sugar alternative like Swerve or Monk Fruit. You can find these on Amazon or your local health food store.
