I just recently perfected this recipe. I have spent a lot of time researching how to make my own cream cheese frosting for my carrot cake. Working around multiple allergies (dairy, nuts, soy) did not make this task simple. Dairy-free cream cheese is actually available to buy. Unfortunately, it is usually made from ingredients with soy or cashews/other nuts. I struggled to figure out how to get that cream cheese frosting consistency and flavor without, well, using ACTUAL cream cheese.
So, in steps COVID and quarantine, and I spent a lot of time working on my allergy-friendly cooking and baking. I don’t know about you, but at the beginning of the quarantine, I had my groceries delivered. Many times I received items that were at or almost at the expiration date. I had some dairy-free oat milk yogurt that was about to expire. I decided to give it a try in my frosting recipe. Why not? Well, it worked. My frosting tasted perfect. Finally!
So after lots of trial and error and many failures, I am so excited to share this recipe! Don’t forget to check out my Delicious Gluten-Free Carrot Cake recipe.
