  • 3 ¾ cups Powdered Sugar (450g)
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (45g)
  • 4 Tablespoons Soy Milk (60ml) or other non-dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract


  • Add the powdered sugar, vegan butter, half the soy milk and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl.
  • Using your electric mixer, start at low speed, gradually increasing speed. Add the rest of the soy milk in slowly until perfectly smooth and thick.*
  • It should be very thick, but still easily spreadable.



  1. You can switch soy milk for almond milk or another non-dairy milk if you prefer.
  2. You might not need to use all the soy milk to achieve the desired consistency. Some vegan butters have a higher water content than others and this can make some end up too runny, so only use as much as needed.
