Vegan Chocolate Velvet Frosting

This Vegan Chocolate Velvet Frosting is extremely rich and smooth because it features non-dairy milk and arrowroot powder as it's base. Cocoa powder and just the right amount of powdered sugar allow this vegan frosting to burst at the seams with chocolate flavor.

Organic sugar is vegan

Choose organic sugar. In the USA sugar labeled organic is vegan. .
Organic sugar does not contain, nor has it been processed with, animal products.
Ordinary sugar is whitened using bone char.
So organic sugar is not as white as ordinary sugar.

vegan sugar


you can't say all white sugar is not vegan. Cane sugar could be processed with cow bones but beet sugar not. In addition this process tend to be less and less used

confectioners sugar NOT vegan

Hi there, I appreciate your good intentions. But, please be aware that confectioners sugar (all white sugar for that matter) is NOT a vegan product as it is process with cow bones to make it white.

So this recipe yummy as it seems is not vegan.
