Best Ever Gluten Free Dairy Free Icing

Haven't been able to make your favorite dessert recipes because you can't have dairy? This is perfect for you! For all of the recipes I have made that need icing, having a dairy free icing is something I couldn't find at any normal store. Like I do with a lot of things I decided to take it into my own hands. Since I am lactose intolerant I had to come up with the perfect recipe that was both gluten and dairy free. Over time I just learned to adjust the recipe to how I liked it and finally got it just right. It is extremely simple to make and you only need 4 ingredients as well. If your worried about how this icing would taste, don't be. It's honestly the best icing I've ever had, even better than the non-dairy ones I've tried before. Enjoy it for whatever recipe you use!

  1. In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract until smooth. 
  2. Add the confectioners' sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Put on any recipe you made it for and enjoy!
Note: Makes enough icing to cover an 11 by 9 inch recipe. Double recipe if needed.
