Coconut Buttercream Frosting [Vegan, Paleo]




Enough frosting for 1 cake or 12 cupcakes

Cook Time



  • 2 cups coconut cream (full fat, organic)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tablespoon stevia powder
  • Pinch of vanilla bean powder


  1. Begin by scooping out the thick coconut cream found at the top of the can. Save the leftover liquid to use in smoothie recipes or other baked goods.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the scooped coconut cream, the vanilla bean powder, and stevia. Use a hand mixer to beat the ingredients on medium speed until well-combined.
  3. Gradually, add tapioca starch until desired thickness is reached. Continue until smooth.
  4. Pour the frosting into an airtight jar or bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
