  • Diet: Gluten Free


This sugar cookie decor is AIP compliant, and a super fun activity to do with the whole family! Pair it with AIP sugar cookies for a holiday treat.



For the green frosting

  • 1/2 cup palm shortening
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream (the cream that hardens on top of a can of coconut milk set in the fridge)
  • 2 tsp light-colored honey
  • 1/21 tsp matcha powder

For the pink/red frosting

  • 1/2 cup palm shortening
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tsp light-colored honey
  • 23 tsp pomegranate juice

For the decorations


  1.  Make the frosting by creaming together the coconut cream, palm shortening, and honey. Thoroughly break up the coconut cream and stir until a soft and creamy frosting is formed. Add the 1/2 tsp of the coloring (matcha powder or pomegranate juice) at a time, and stir. Adjust the amount of coloring until you reach your desired taste and color.
  2. Once the sugar cookies (you should have enough to decorate about 2 batches) are fully cooled, frost with the frosting and your choice and decorate as desired!


This recipe makes green and pink frosting. To make yellow frosting, use 1/2- 1 tsp turmeric powder!
