Unlike traditional frosting recipes that rely on butter and white sugar, this fudgy chocolate frosting is made from avocados, pure maple syrup, and raw cacao powder for a more nutritious, anti-inflammatory dessert option.
I love this recipe as it’s:
One of the main ingredients in this healthier frosting recipe is raw cacao powder.
Cacao is similar to cocoa in that it comes from the cacao plant. However, unlike cocoa powder, cacao beans aren’t roasted. Instead, the beans are cold-pressed to make a powder. As a result, cacao powder retains more nutrients than cocoa powder.
Specifically, cacao is a rich source of magnesium, which can help reduce stress and support proper brain functioning, as well as potassium, which is important for heart health and can reduce bloating.
Plus, cacao powder is incredibly rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds.
This vegan chocolate avocado frosting requires just 6 simple ingredients:
Making this healthy avocado fudge frosting couldn’t be easier.
Simply pulse the avocado in a food processor until creamy and then add everything else in. Pulse a few times, scraping down the sides once or twice, until the mixture is silky smooth.
After that you’re ready to start frosting!
This avocado chocolate frosting can also be a healthy CBD dessert recipe as well.
You can either use a CBD tincture or a CBD isolate powder.
I recommend using a powder as it’ll have less of an effect on the texture of this healthy avocado frosting. I like using CBDistillery’s CBDelicious powder as it’s high quality and doesn’t add any earthy flavor to this frosting.
Curious how much to use? It depends on how many grams of CBD you want in your frosting. For example, one jar of CBDelicious contains 1 gram of pure CBD, which means that there’s 1 mg of CBD per 1 mg of powder.
So, if the frosting makes about 16 tablespoons and you want each tablespoon to have 10 mg of CBD, you’d need to add 160 mg of CBD. I use a scale to measure mine out, but you can also buy micro scoops online that can measure out mg doses.
This healthy vegan chocolate avocado frosting makes about 1 cup of frosting.
So, depending on what you’re using it on, you may need to double or triple the recipe in order to fully frost your dessert.
I put this healthy avocado frosting on a small batch of raw brownies, so I had about half of the avocado frosting leftover. If this happens to you, simply place any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
When stored in the fridge, this frosting should last for about 3 days.
Freezing the frosting on its own doesn’t work great. I’ve found that it gets a bit too watery when thawed and difficult to spread.
However if you spread it on your dessert first, such as a raw brownie, and then freeze the entire dessert, it tends to keep much better. Still, I’d eat that dessert within 2 weeks of being frozen.
So how do you put this healthy avocado frosting to good use?
It’d be delicious as a dip for banana slices, fresh strawberries, or raspberries.
Of course, you can also use it in place of other frostings in these healthier dessert recipes:
