  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons milk of coconut milk or other nut milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • In a small bowl, cream the coconut butter until smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes, with a hand blender on high speed.
  • Add half the confectioner's sugar, half the milk, and all the vanilla and lemon juice. Combine on medium speed with the hand blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Blend in the remaining confectioner's sugar in 1/4 cup increments, until you get the desired results. Blend in more milk to thin out, as necessary.
  • Divide into bowls, color and frost.
