When it comes to frosting, it doesn’t get much simpler than this Easy Strawberry Frosting recipe. It uses just 3-ingredients.
You probably already have them in your home!
It’s a softer frosting than buttercream.
It can be used on cakes, cupcakes, and as a filling.
This whipped strawberry frosting is best served the day it’s made.
I think it’s perfect for chocolate cupcakes or cake. What a match made in heaven–strawberries and chocolate.
If you’re a purist, you can always add a fourth ingredient, chunks of fresh strawberries!
If you’re short on time, or just inherently lazy, like me, this easy 3-ingredient strawberry frosting is the fluffy, stable whipped dream you’ve been searching for!
Again, just three ingredients. Strawberry pudding, Cool Whip, and milk.
I get it.
Jello in your frosting sounds weird.
Consider this: with the sweetness and bright color of Jell-O changes both its taste and appearance.
The other selling point here is that you aren’t just limited to an easy strawberry frosting!
Using Jell-O as a base flavor means that your frosting flavors are only limited by the varieties of Jello on the shelves.
One more time, in case you blinked.
Easy Strawberry Frosting Ingredients:

Easy Strawberry Frosting Directions:

Whip in cool whip.

Easy Strawberry Frosting Tip;
Place a metal mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
This step isn’t necessary.
In fact, you can skip it.
By placing the bowl and beaters in the freezer, it produces a frosting with stiffer peaks.
The downside–it will take a little longer for your milk to dissolve the jello.
If you aren’t opposed to an extra dish to wash, try transferring the dissolved jello mixture to your chilled bowl.
Ready. Set. Decorate!
And while this Strawberry frosting recipe is a couple more than 3-ingredients, it might be one you want to try.
It’s a little more luxurious.
It takes a little longer.
Consider it a bonus if one day you have a little more time and want to try it.
Side note: If you are planning on doing beautiful piping–the Jello Strawberry Frosting recipe below is perfect, but you’ll need to work quickly as this will become firm, unlike the recipe above.
