  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, make your own or use store-bought, solid
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (not melted)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 -3 tbsp maple syrup


  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
  • Variation: substitute orange zest for the lemon zest. The frosting will be a pale orange colour. See it here on my Carrot Ginger Muffins.
  • You may need to chill the frosting slightly first before frosting the cupcakes.
