1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 to 5 tbsp soy, almond, or rice milk
Fresh raspberries, for garnish

Chocolate Frosting Instructions:

  2. In the meantime, using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the shortening until smooth. With the mixer running on low, add powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tbsp nondairy milk at a time, as needed, until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. You may not need to use all of the nondairy milk. 
  3. Add the melted chocolate chips. Beat on medium speed until combined. Increase speed to high and beat for 2 more minutes until light and fluffy.
