Frosting

[ingredients title=”Ingredients”]

  • 2 cups Organic powdered sugar (or make your own by putting sugar and a little cornstarch in a blender until you get the consistency of powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

[/ingredients]

[directions title=”Directions”]

  1. Melt coconut oil in a warm pan. Add in vanilla and coconut milk. Warm on medium heat. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir and cook on medium heat until frosting begins to thicken. You don’t want it too thick, just thick enough to stay in place when you put it on the cupcake. It will harden a bit after it cools so you don’t want it getting too hard. If its too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  2. Frost warm cupcakes with warm frosting. Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
