  • 1 cup strawberry puree https://sugargeekshow.com/recipe/strawberry-reduction-recipe/
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup pasteurized egg whites room temperature
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 2 lbs unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Place egg whites and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl with the whisk attachment. Whisk to combine. Add in butter in small chunks then vanilla and salt. Whip on high until light and fluffy and white. Optional: switch to the paddle attachment and mix on low for 15-20 minutes until all air bubbles are gone. 
  • Combine 2 cups room temperature puree and zest with buttercream. Fold together to combine. 
  • Because this buttercream has fresh fruit in it make sure it stays refrigerated. Store excess buttercream in the fridge or freeze for up to 6 months. Defrost buttercream in the fridge and re-whip before use.
