Quick and Easy Dairy Free Chocolate Frosting on a Cupcake

Don't you feel any recipe you make with chocolate, you can never go wrong, you don't have to worry how it is going to turn out just because chocolate makes everything better. Here is a very quick and easy to make dairy free chocolate frosting recipe.

It is similar to the vanilla frosting I made earlier, just with added cocoa. It's dairy free and can be made allergy friendly according to your allergies. I have used coconut oil and coconut milk but they can be substituted for any dairy free milk and butter alternatives.

  • 10 mins
  • 12 cupcakes
  • Easy


Adjust Servings:
1 and 3/4 cups icing sugar
1/4 cups unsweetened natural cocoa powder
2 tablespoons coconut or any dairy free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil or any dairy free alternative, softened
pinch salt


5 min
  • Add all the ingredients to the bowl
  • Chocolate Frosting ingredients mixed
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a whisk or electric mixer until peaks form.
