Vegan Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Make light and fluffy vegan lemon buttercream frosting with just 3 base ingredients (regular or keto) and either a stand mixer or handheld mixer. This dairy-free lemon frosting is perfect for spreading and piping work, with an adjustable consistency!


– 1 C of softened unsalted vegan butter at room temperature (salted is fine, if that’s what you have) – 1 package confectioner’s sugar (3 ½ C)  (1lb) package – 2 Tbsp of lemon juice – 2 tsp of lemon zest – 2 tsp of vanilla extract

In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl if you’re using a handheld electric mixer), add the room temperature vegan butter. Whisk the butter on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Slowly add the confectioner’s sugar while continuously beating the vegan butter. Add in the lemon juice and vanilla extract and beat for an additional three minutes until light and fluffy.
