This vegan cream cheese frosting is just as creamy, sweet, and tangy as the classic kind, but it's totally dairy-free! Slather it on my pumpkin bars, carrot cake, or vegan carrot cake, or any treat you like.


  • 4 ounces vegan cream cheese*
  • tablespoons vegan butter, slightly softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, more for a stiffer frosting, sifted if lumpy
  • teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and mix until smooth. If you prefer a stiffer frosting, beat in additional powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency.


*I like Kite Hill.
