yields about 1 3/4 cups
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp skim milk
Combine the confectioner’s sugar, butter and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer (or other medium sized bowl). Blend on low for 2-3 minutes.
Turn mixer onto medium speed and slowly blend in milk. Continue blending until frosting is smooth (you may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl).
