Quick Kitchen Hint: Frosting
You know that homemade frosting recipe that's made out of butter, a bit of milk and a TON of powdered sugar? I always found that WAY too sweet. I discovered today that cutting the sugar by about a third with arrowroot flour is a really great alternative. I also used coconut milk instead of cow's milk for a bit of a different taste. Turned out nicely. I might try a frosting that's more Nourishing Traditions next time using butter, milk, arrowroot flour and maple syrup.
