Plant Based Chocolate Frosting

I have served this frosting on many cakes for holiday parties and it's always a hit! The kids love it, my (skeptical) brothers love it, my sisters ask for the recipe, and everyone is surprised that it's made with such healthy ingredients. I still consider this recipe to be a treat...but hey, what a fabulous way to "treat" our bodies! This is an easy plant based chocolate frosting that I've made with a small amount of healthy fats, this ensures I do not disrupt my insulin resistance.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of steamed (or boiled) sweet potatoes

  • 1 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 2 TBL avocado or 1/4 avocado

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • If you need it sweeter, try adding in liquid vanilla stevia drops until you're sweet tooth is satisfied or more maple syrup.

Directions:

1.) Add sweet potatoes and avocado in food processor and run until everything is very smooth.

2.) Then add the rest of your ingredients and taste test! Adding in a small amount of liquid stevia as needed. 3.) Enjoy! Makes roughly 2 cups frosting.

Notes: I like to chill my frosting before decorating. I find this recipe doesn't work too well with a piping bag but you can still achieve beautiful cakes.... Check out my favorite plant- based chocolate cake HERE.

I also enjoy this with banana, strawberries, rice cakes or on a piece of toast!
