Vanilla frosting on cupcake

This is a very quick and easy to make dairy free vanilla frosting recipe. It 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.

12 years ago there were no allergy friendly frosting on the market. Since then I have been practicing how to make an edible vanilla frosting that my kids would like. I say edible because if you deal with any kind of substitutions in cooking you know it can end up as a disaster. I have finally made a frosting that behaves just like a frosting and is good in taste as well.

Combine it with my chocolate frosting to make swirl frosting.
