Small Batch Coconut Buttercream Frosting

Coconut Buttercream Frosting

I once tried Coconut frosting when I made Zucchini Cake and I loved it. I thought of creating a separate blog because I immediately knew I will be re-using it over and over again. This is another version of American Buttercream Frosting with Coconut Flavor. The coconut gives a really good flavor and texture to the Buttercream Frosting. I had used this to fill layers of cake or as main frosting for the cake. This is a small batch, you can double the recipe to yield a bigger batch. Let’s get started!

Coconut Buttercream Frosting Recipe


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup Icing/Confectioners Sugar (sifted)
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)

Coconut Buttercream Frosting Recipe (Small Batch)


  1. In a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter until it becomes fluffy (approximately 5 minutes).
  2. Add Icing Sugar and mix until it gets a  smooth texture (approximately 8-10 minutes)
  3. Add shredded coconut and continue mixing until fully combined.
  4. Keep in the fridge and let stand in room temperature before using for a more spreadable consistency.

Good To Know:

  1. Room  temperature butter is very important for this frosting.
  2. If you store this in the fridge, leave to room temperature before using so that it will be spreadable.
