Imagine eating a cloud.
I can tell you for sure, it would taste exactly like eating this icing.
Now let me tell you a few secrets:
- There’s no powdered sugar in this icing
There’s no butter in this icing
This recipe only requires 4 simple, healthy ingredients
Oh, and the best secret of all time: this icing only has two grams of sugar per tablespoon. There’s no way you could find that with traditional icing, made with buckets of powdered sugar and butter.
The trick to this icing is the coconut oil. As you know if you’ve ever tried coconut oil, it solidifies at room temperature. Therefore, in order to make the smoothest peanut butter icing imaginable, simply melt the coconut oil and stir in the remaining ingredients, then place the bowl in an ice bath and whip until fluffy.
Enjoy your fluffy, cloud icing! 🙂
Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
- 1/2 c coconut oil
- 2 tbs peanut butter
- 2 tbs agave nectar (or honey)

Remove from heat, then add agave and vanilla, stirring again until combined. Pour into a small bowl. fill a larger bowl with ice and place the small bowl into it. Using a hand mixer, beat on low until icing begins to turn to a lighter color. Then beat on medium-high until fluffy. Enjoy!
