1/2 cup non-hydrognated, non-dairy Butter, such as Earth Balance , at room temperature
2 cups Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Non-dairy Milk, or more as needed
Food coloring, optional
With an electric hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth. With the mixer on low speed, add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, milk, and food coloring (if using). once all ingredients are relatively well combined, beat on high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy, 3 – 4 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tbsp more milk if it is too dry. Cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying until ready to use. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
