Dairy Free Frosting (no Palm Or Soybean Oil)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm having some problems finding a dairy/gluten free frosting recipe that doesn't contain palm or soybean oil, as I am very sensitive to those oils (I can have canola and olive though). For instance, I used to use Earth Balance but I couldn't handle it...any suggestions? Usually I have to resort to a simple glaze...but I'd really love a great frosting recipe :).

We do the glaze too. I suppose you could use coconut oil. Or there is a recipe on the Enjoy Life chocolate chips for making frosting. I think you just melt them and glend in some rice milk. I've never made it but my friend did and it was good according to my daughter.

Since there are similarities between palm oil and coconut oil, I wonder if you can have coconut oil?

Since my kids are allergic to dairy, and sensitive to soy.... we use a dairy free/soy free margarine. It's called Mother's - and it's Kosher for Passover, so I'm not sure you can buy it "just anywhere" or at any time of the year. I stock up and put it in the freezer. Obviously, this probably won't help you NOW.... but for future reference....

Anyhow, it's made from cottonseed oil. Certainly not the healthiest stuff on the earth, but it works in a pinch. I've made buttercream frosting using it, with orange juice rather than milk or water, and it's worked great. Tasted pretty good too!

I've made 7-minute icing from just egg whites, boiling water, and plain sugar (not even powdered!) It tastes a little bit like marshmellow fluff and it better for you than your average icing. The jist of it is that you add boiling h20 to the sugar and egg white mixture and beat it with a mixer for 7 minutes. look online for an exact recipe. I think the one I used called for cream of tartar too. You could also add chocolate or food coloring.


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

I found this one the other day, similar to the one you mentioned. Its from Taste of Home Quick Cooking, created by Georgie Bohmann. A variation of of the classic 7-minute frosting.

Fluffy White Frosting

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 egg whites

1/3 cup water

1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a heavy saucepan or double broiler, combine sugar, egg whites, water and cream of tartar. With a portable mixer, beat mixture on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating on low speed until frosting reaches 160 degrees, about 8-10 minutes. Pour into a large mixing bowl; add vanilla. Beat on high speed until frosting forms stiff peaks, about 7 minutes.
