Very Berry Naturally Pink Frosting
- 1/2 pound fresh strawberries
- 4-5 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup butter softened
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1-2 tablespoons shortening optional--this is helpful if you plan to pipe out the frosting and want it to keep its shape; I use Spectrum Organic shortening
Rinse and slice strawberries, then place them in a blender and puree until smooth.
Cook strawberry puree in a saucepan on the stove over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes or until mixtures starts to cook down and thicken. Remove from heat.
Place 4 cups powdered sugar, butter, lemon juice, and 4 tablespoons strawberry puree in a mixing bowl and blend for 30 seconds on low until combined. Scrape down sides of bowl and continue beating, adding more powdered sugar or puree until you achieve a consistency thick enough for spreading or piping.
