  • 1 cup dairy-free butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk


  1. Take dairy-free butter out of the refrigerator and place it on the counter for about 30 minutes before making the frosting so that it can soften.
  2. Place softened butter in a medium to large bowl and using a hand mixer, whip the butter for 2 minutes on low-medium speed.
  3. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and mix on low until mostly combined and then on medium until completely combined and smooth. Scrape down sides as needed.
