Or, you know, just eat it straight from the blender with a spoon!

It is also excellent for frosting cakes or cupcakes, spreading on sliced bananas, or using as a dip for strawberries.

You really can’t go wrong! It is naturally gluten-free; and because there is no butter, the frosting is suitable for vegans as well.

Because it’s free of processed ingredients, trans fats, and preservatives, it’s best to make up a batch of this avocado frosting right before you plan to use it.

Leftovers can be refrigerated for a few days and will still taste delicious, but the color and texture of this frosting are best the day it’s made.

5/516

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 6-8 tbsp pure maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional 2 tbsp oil

Instructions

Be sure to use soft, ripe avocados. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until completely smooth. You can add a little oil–such as melted coconut oil–for an even richer taste or if your blender has any trouble getting the frosting smooth (which can happen if using a smaller or low-power blender). Because of the lack of preservatives, it’s best to make up a batch of this avocado frosting right before you plan to use it. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a few days and will still taste delicious, but color and texture are best immediately after blending.

    I made this to put on the keto brownie recipe. I’m currently sitting on the couch eating the rest of it straight from the bowl with a spoon.
