Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting

After the Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting turned out so delicious, I decided to tweak that recipe into new flavors.

So what is this Keto sweetener all the recipes are using called Erythritol? Erythritol belongs to the class of compounds referred to as sugar alcohols. This particular sugar alcohol is a naturally occurring compound that stimulates the sweet taste receptors on your tongue to mimic the taste of sugar.

Other sugar substitutes include stevia, Splenda, and equal. All sweeteners are usually interchangeable. Just get measurements and ratios.

Coconut Whipped Cream

The best vegan ingredient in most of these buttercream frostings is Smuckers Marshmallow Topping!

This kiwi fruit buttercream frosting is tart and sweet. You can see the little seeds throughout the frosting. Kiwi fruit creates a lovely green shade.

Matcha is a fun ingredient for vegan icing recipes.

Sweeteners come in many textures and consistencies. Frosting recipes are easy to change sweeteners. For example Simply replace smuckers marshmallow topping with maple syrup in some of these vegan icing recipes.

Replace maple syrup with date syrup for a change! So many flavors are interchangeable in vegan icing recipes. If you have any questions leave a comment!
