  • 2 15 oz cans coconut milk, chilled
  • 8 oz vegan cream cheese
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. First put the chilled coconut milk with all the other ingredients in a bowl. The coconut milk has to be chilled so that you can scrape the cream from it, use the liquid for all your things like spreads, dips, smoothies. Use a hand mixer until the mix is beaten really thick and creamy.
  2. Next and already last: Put the frosting in a pastry bag and frost your cupcakes, cakes, brownies and anything you like. Enjoy immediately or chill for later.
