Dreamy Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting

A super simple vegan frosting recipe made from whole foods like cashews, lemon juice, and almond milk! Use it on your favorite vegan cake!


  • 2 and 1/2 cups cashews
  • 5 Tbsp. non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 34 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Add your cashews to a medium bowl and cover with boiling water for 20 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Add your drained cashews to a high-powered blender with your milk, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and a small pinch of salt. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. The mixture will be very thick.
  3. Transfer your mixture to the bowl of your stand mixer and place in the fridge to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Add your powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and beat with the paddle attachment until combined and smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Eat with a spoon or with your favorite vegan cake!
