Vegan Pink Buttercream Frosting & Thoughtful & Personal Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day (or Any Day!)
  • 2 tbs cold vegan butter (I used soy-free Earth Balance butter)
  • 3 tbs cups powdered cane sugar (sugar-free version: use powdered xylitol)
  • ½ tsp beet powder (I got mine from the bulk section of a health store to save money by only getting as much as I need)
The cookies were just based on the almond cookie bites. (Which are delicious!! Make them! :D)
  1. Use a fork to fluff the butter and remove the lumps. Add in the beet powder and gradually add in the powdered sugar and stir so everything is combined and smooth. Do a taste test before you add in all the sugar to see if it is sweet enough. (always good to use less sugar if we can... not that this is the healthiest thing as it is, but it's nice for special occasions :)).
  2. Use on cookies, cupcakes, cakes, sweet breads...etc. Keep leftovers in the fridge.
