Spirulina Cashew Buttercream Frosting

Spirulina Cashew Buttercream Frosting


Finding the right frosting color and using natural ingredients can be pretty challenging. For a while, I really struggled with getting beautiful green and teal hues because I could not find a strong enough natural green powder. Luckily, I started working with Neurogan this year, and I have completely fell in love with their Spirulina Powder for developing a green, teal color that is not overly saturated. I mean, just look at that gorgeous color on this mini cake! Here is the recipe for a delicious, creamy and colorful Spirulina Cashew Buttercream.

Be sure to follow @neurogan @neurogransuperfoods and @nutmegandhoneybee on Instagram for more recipes! Need a recipe for the cake base? Check out this recipe I used for cupcakes using the Neurogan Ashwagandha Powder. The recipe is the same for cakes and cupcakes!

Spirulina Cashew Buttercream Frosting {{ vegan, refined sugar-free }}

  • 1 1/2 c cashews soaked overnight

  • 1/2 c full fat coconut milk

  • 1/3 c melted coconut oil

  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1/2 Tbsp Spirulina Powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 tsp salt


Mix together all the ingredients in a high speed blender until you reach a creamy and smooth consistency. Allow the mixture to cool in the refrigerator overnight. This allows the consistency to reach a perfect texture for piping and frosting a cake or cupcakes.

Hope you enjoy this rad frosting for your delicious treats!
