  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1 package (8-ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, at room temperature
  • 1 package (16-ounces) powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. If using fresh strawberries, gently wash and pat them dry. Remove stems. If using frozen strawberries, thaw and drain them.

2. In a blender or small food processor, puree the strawberries. Strain puree through a fine sieve. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy.

4. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add powdered sugar, beating until well combined.

5. Add vanilla and strawberry puree, stirring just until blended. Do not over mix. Frosting should be dense and creamy and good spreading consistency. If frosting is too thin, stir in a little additional powdered sugar.
