Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
Servings: 2 ½ cups
Strawberry frosting with no artificial colors or flavors. Just real strawberries.
- 8 ounces 2 sticks soft butter
- 2¼ c powdered sugar
- ¾ c freeze dried strawberries about 1 oz
- 1 tsp vanilla extract powder or gel
- milk or dairy-free substitute optional for spreadable frosting
Place the strawberries in the blender and grind to a fine powder.
Pour the powder through a very fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Use a strainer that has more than one layer of mesh, otherwise the seeds will go through.
Whip the softened butter with an electric mixer until it is smooth, about 1 minute. Add the powdered sugar,
Starting on low speed, mix in the sugar.
Add the strawberry powder and mix in on low speed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Add the salt and vanilla and mix on high for 1 minute.
If the frosting is too stiff add a couple of teaspoons of milk or milk substitute and combine.
