I promise, pinky swear Dear Reader that this icing is the easiest, most delicious, fluffy coconut frosting you'll make. It's three ingredients made in 1 minute in the food processor (you don't even have to sift the icing sugar!). In no time you'll have a gorgeous smooth and silky frosting. Best of all once chilled it sets firm and can easily be made vegan. This is a dream coconut frosting that you just have to try!

Amazing and Easy Coconut Icing!
An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
- 1.5 cups icing sugar
- 3 tablespoons coconut cream (not coconut milk)
- 30g/1oz. butter or butter substitute, room temperature
- A few drops of coconut flavouring
Step 1 - Add the icing sugar in a small food processor and blend to remove lumps. Add the coconut cream and pulse. Then add butter substitute and coconut flavouring and process.
Step 2 - Spread on top of the cake when cool-if you want this coconut frosting to be firmer just place it covered, in the fridge to firm up as it sets firm but becomes softer at room temperature.
