Duncan Hines Frosting Has Mixed Things Up for Dairy-Free

0

I used to keep this frosting information in our Dairy-Free Duncan Hines Cake Mix Post. But Conagra made some recipe changes not too long ago, so I wanted to give Duncan Hines Frosting it’s own spot on our website. Over the years, they’ve reformulated a few times, and the last one was pretty big. It not only changed the taste of the Creamy varieties, it also added dairy to a couple of flavors. And, more of the flavors are now soy-free.

Frosting recipes often contain dairy, but believe it or not, a lot of pre-made, store-bought tubs are dairy-free, and even vegan. At last count, Duncan Hines Frosting came in nine varieties without milk, including one of their cream cheese creations!
