Vanilla Bean Frosting

Print this page

Simplicity at its best. I highly recommend using real vanilla beans–they’re pricey, but the unique flavor and cute black flecks is worth it for an occasional splurge.


Prep Time
Cooking Time
Total Time
Yield 3/4 cup of frosting

1/2 cup of organic non-hydrogenated palm shortening

1/3 cup of your liquid sweetener of choice

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Vanilla from 1/2 of a vanilla bean (optional but recommended)

2 teaspoons of coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon of salt


Simply combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on high until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Spread on cupcakes or muffins using an inverted spatula, or scoop into a pastry bag to make pretty decorations.
