List of Vegan Frosting Brands
If you're too busy to run to the store or interested in getting some of the specialty vegan frostings, we've compiled them below. The two popular brands (Pillsbury and Duncan Hines) are likely to be found in your grocery store, so you can add them to your shopping vegan list if you're running out.
We wanted to give a little disclaimer though: if the product isn't specifically advertised as Vegan (such as the Dollop brand), the company could change their ingredient statement at any time to something non-vegan, so we always recommend double checking!
Anyway, onto the frostings!
Dollop is a new range of gourmet frosting that is all advertised vegan.
- Hot Chocolate
- Madagascar Vanilla
- Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
- Sea Slated Caramel
You probably know Pillsbury – their frostings are found just about everywhere, and come in as many flavors as you could wish.
Here are some other vegan flavors you should be able to find…
- Aqua Blue Vanilla Funfetti
- Hot Pink Vanilla Funfetti
- Bold Purple Vanilla Funfetti
- Vanilla Funfetti
- Stars and Stripe Funfetti
- Vanilla Marshmallow Fluffy
- Chocolate Marshmallow Fluffy
- Funfetti Vanilla Marshmallow Fluffy
Obviously, all of these ranges have more products that aren’t listed here; these are just the most popular.
Be sure to double check Pillsbury frostings before buying, because they certainly aren’t a vegan company.
Duncan Hines is another well-known frosting brand and, like Pillsbury, almost all of their products are vegan.
Again, just be sure when buying these products that you check the ingredients – they can change at any time and Duncan Hines isn’t a vegan specific brand.
Some other flavors yoou might find…
- Salted Caramel
- Classic Vanilla
- Coconut Pecan
- Cream Cheese (no actual milk)
There’s also Fat Daddio’s, which is an advertised vegan fondant – so it’s unlikely to change ingredients.
- True Blue Vanilla
- Green Vanilla
- Turquoise Vanilla
- Light Blue Vanilla
- Light Green Vanilla
Is Frosting Healthy Just Because It's Vegan?
We wanted to address this as many people automatically associated vegan with healthier. The truth is that some processed vegan foods can be just as harmful as animal products and frosting probably falls into one of these categories given the fact that some brands have hydrogenated oil in addition to loads of processed sugar.
That's not to say you can't enjoy some cake once in a while (vegan is an ethical issue - not a health one), but we just wanted to make a quick disclaimer!
