A regular Royal icing is made of egg whites and confectioners’ sugar, but how about vegan Royal icing recipe? Furthermore – what about refined sugar free vegan Royal icing? As you can guess, it is totally doable.
P.S. There is tutorial video further down!
Now, it was already last year when I had to come up with sugar-free vegan Royal icing recipe, because I went on vegan Candida diet. Since xylitol can be consumed on Candida diet, I naturally used it in the recipe. Luckily xylitol grinds into powdered sugar as easily as regular sugar. Surprisingly enough, you don’t need anything else but a bit of coconut milk or any other plant milk to achieve a creamy texture for decorating cookies. Furthermore, the same icing would fit perfectly to coat cinnamon rolls.
I don’t like anything artificial, hence I use only natural food colourings for my vegan Royal icing:
- Yellow – turmeric
- Blue – blue matcha, blue spirulina, butterfly pea powder
- Purple – blueberry powder, acai powder
- Green – spirulina, wheatgrass powder
- Red – beetroot powder
- Pink – pink pitaya powder
- Brown – cocoa powder, carob powder
- Black/grey – charcoal powder
In conclusion, my vegan Royal Icing is so awesome, because of the following features:
- Refined sugar free
- Doesn’t use artificial food dies
- Suitable for diabetics, for those on vegan Candida diet as well as for people struggling with blood sugar imbalance.
Moreover, my vegan Royal icing is also:
- Super sweet
- Easy to make
- Perfect treat
And most of all, it goes extremely well with my gluten-free vegan gingerbread cookies.

Eggless Vegan Royal Icing Recipe
- 100g (3.5oz) birch xylitol
- 2 ½ tbsps. unsweetened coconut milk
- First, grind xylitol into powder (confectioner’s sugar) using high speed blender or a grinder.
- Then, whisk in the coconut milk until you have a smooth creamy texture.
Finally, I divided the icing between four bowls, left one white and added some beetroot powder to one, wheatgrass powder to the other and turmeric to the last one.
Tips on sugar-free and egg free vegan Royal icing:
- This sugar-free vegan Royal icing will thicken in the fridge, at which point you can mix in a bit of plant milk or coconut milk.
- Next, I discovered that a sushi stick works perfectly to decorate my vegan gingerbread cookies, but you can also transfer the icing into icing tube and make use of that.
- You can also use any berry powder, spirulina, or blue spirulina/matcha to colour your vegan Royal icing.
