Strawberry Icing


  • 4 cups strawberries
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 plus 1/4 cup unhydrogenated organic palm oil (Ottawa: go to  Pantry Plus  Outside: see Spectrum Organics)
  • 3 tbsp macadamia nut butter, or 1-2 tbsp almond butter  Nut free: 1 tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Cook the strawberries over medium to low heat until they have become thick and syrupy- most of the water is removed and they have reduced down to about 1 cup. 
  2. Add the strawberries, palm oil, nut or seed butter, agave nectar and salt to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Done! :)  For other soy, dairy and sugar free icing recipes, check out this post.
