Vegan Green Frosting Recipe

While this can be used on any baked good, we love this green frosting on MaryRuth’s Irish Soda Bread Biscuits! 



  • 3/4 cup Palm Shortening (MaryRuth uses Nutiva**)
  • 1/2 cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk (left in the fridge overnight — use the top of the coconut milk off the can for 1/2 cup) 
  • 1/2 cup Cashew Butter (MaryRuth uses Artisana Organics Raw Cashew Butter**)
  • 1 ½ cups Sifted Maple Sugar made from 100% Maple Syrup (if you want a sweeter frosting, use 1 ¾ cups & taste as you go) 
  • 1 tbsp Sifted Coconut Flour 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract 
  • 1 dash Fine Pink Sea Salt 
  • 1 Box Natural Food Coloring Dye (MaryRuth uses Nature’s Colors Decorating Set by India Tree**)



  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the palm shortening, coconut milk, cashew butter, and sifted maple sugar and beat on medium-high speed until combined for 5 minutes. (If you do not have a stand mixer you may use a hand mixer.)
  2. Add the sifted coconut flour, vanilla extract, and sea salt and beat again until incorporated. 
  3. Time to make the green color natural food dye! Read the instructions on the box and use two clean bowls to mix your colors. Take blue and combine it with yellow to make green! 
  4. Add the natural green food dye to the frosting and beat until incorporated and the exact green color you want has been achieved. 
  5. Frost your cooled Irish Soda Bread Biscuits or other baked good, and enjoy them with family, friends, and co-workers!
