This frosting does contain dairy. If you want a dairy-free frosting, please see my Honey-Sweetened Coconut Whipped Cream Frosting.

Place all ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar and blend with a fork or hand mixer until smooth.

Looks yummy! How do you make frosting?
Thanks Sue! The frosting is a basic cream cheese one (I know it's not healthy, but it tastes wonderful!). I make my own powdered sugar at home to try and cut down on a tad of the processing. 🙂 Here's a link to my recipe: http://raiasrecipes.blogspot.com/2011/06/cream-cheese-frosting.html
