When I was little, frosting was one of my favorite snacks (as disgusting as that sounds). It started when I was a toddler and one of my favorite snacks was a bagel with vanilla frosting and sprinkles. Soon that turned into chocolate frosting on graham crackers, and finally chocolate or vanilla frosting on a spoon.
That kind of snack no longer sounds good to me at all. The frosting from the can (which was the kind I loved) is full of chemicals and other gross stuff that I don’t want entering my body. With that being said, I still like frosting… as long as it’s the healthy kind.
This Chocolate Avocado Frosting is my new favorite.
It’s super creamy, super rich, and full of chocolate flavor. It’s also not super sweet, which is my pet peeve when it comes to frosting.
And did I mention you can make it in less than 5 minutes? Yep, that’s a plus too. It’s better than the canned stuff, and a whole lot healthier too.
Chocolate Avocado Frosting
- 1/2 cup mashed avocado (this was 1 small avocado for me)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup honey (use agave for a vegan version)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (a vegan version, such as So Delicious, will also work)
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted
Don’t you just want to dive head first into that bowl?
