  • 1 stick of unsalted (vegan) butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Butter Bliss: Begin by allowing your vegan butter to reach room temperature. This ensures a smooth and creamy consistency in your frosting. If you're short on time, you can gently soften the butter in the microwave, but be cautious not to melt it completely.

  2. The Sweet Stuff: In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of powdered sugar to the softened vegan butter. Using an electric mixer on low speed, gradually incorporate the sugar into the butter. This step prevents a cloud of sugar dust and ensures a silky texture.

  3. Liquid Gold: Introduce 1 tablespoon of your favorite plant-based milk into the mix. This can be almond, soy, oat, or any other milk you prefer. The milk adds moisture and helps achieve the perfect spreading consistency.

  4. Vanilla Elegance: To infuse your frosting with a hint of sophistication, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. The vanilla not only enhances the flavor but also provides that classic aroma we all adore.

  5. Whip It Good: Now, turn up the speed on your electric mixer to medium-high and whip the ingredients together until you have a fluffy and smooth frosting. This should take about 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on the consistency and adjust with more milk if needed.

  6. Frost with Love: Once your Vegan, Gluten-Free Carrot Cake has cooled, generously spread this delectable frosting over the top. The velvety texture and heavenly sweetness will beautifully complement the spiced notes of the carrot cake.

  7. Optional Garnish: If you're feeling fancy, consider topping your frosted carrot cake with a sprinkle of chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or even carrot curls for an extra layer of flavor and visual appeal.

There you have it – the perfect super easy healthier frosting to elevate your Vegan, Gluten-Free Carrot Cake to a new level of deliciousness. With a combination of vegan butter, powdered sugar, plant-based milk, and vanilla, you can indulge guilt-free in a treat that's both wholesome and satisfying.
