This basic white frosting is easy to make and even smoother to top your cake with. I’ve made this many times for potlucks and gatherings for a dairy-free and refined sugar-free dessert. The recipe is a work in progress but I like it enough to share here ?
½ cup ghee, softened
¼ cup full-fat coconut milk*
1 Tbsp xylitol (finely ground into a powder) or 1 pinch of white stevia powder
1 Tbsp arrowroot
- Mix with hand blender until creamy; careful not to over-mix.
- Place in fridge for a few minutes to harden up if it gets soft and mushy.
- Add in color if you would like (see below) and frost.
Tips & Tricks
- Add color with vegetable-based dye (beet root powder = pink, spirulina = green, turmeric = yellow).
- Native Forest is the best brand of coconut milk to use for this recipe.
- Substitute 1 Tbsp of raw honey for the xylitol or stevia powder if you tolerate.
- I’ve never tried but you may be able to swap coconut oil for the ghee, let me know if you try 😉
- Looking for another B.E.D.-friendly treat to frost? Try my almond cookies (egg-free, sweetened with lakanto).
*If you’re on the early stage of Body Ecology Diet or another gut-healing diet, you may want to culture the coconut flour and milk to introduce enzymes and probiotics which make this recipe easier to digest. If you skip this step, then make this an occasional or transitional treat.
