  • Add butter, vanilla and strawberry puree to a large mixing bowl and mix together using a hand mixer or stand mixer on medium speed, until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

  • Spread frosting on your favorite cupcakes or cake and enjoy!


  • Dairy-free: To make this strawberry frosting dairy-free, simply substitute regular butter with a vegan butter.
  • Low-sugar: I haven't tried it, but for a lower sugar option, you should be able to replace some of the powdered sugar with a sugar substitute like powdered erythritol or Swerve confectioners' sugar. Adjust the amount to taste.
