Healthy Vegan Chocolate Frosting
Prep time

Total time


This recipe was created to go with Kimetha’s Naturally Delicious Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes. Note that the prep time does not include resting and chilling time.
Serves: Enough for 12 cupcakes

  • 8 Medjool dates
  • 1 cup plain or vanilla milk alternative (So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage works well)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon caramel imitation flavoring or real vanilla extract

  1. Pit dates and cut into small pieces. Put in the bottom of a blender. Cover with the coconut milk let sit as long as possible (1 hour or so).
  2. Cut avocado and scrape out all the green goodness. Add cocoa and choice of flavoring and blend until smooth. Refrigerate for a couple hours.
  3. Fancy: Put in pastry bag and top cup cakes. Not Fancy: Take a spoon and put a spoonful on top of cupcake. Don’t tell them and no one will know there is an avocado in there.

    Hi there-I made your recipe for my son’s birthday this weekend and it was great! Mine didn’t look like yours (darker) and the consistency was that of pudding, but it still worked as a frosting. Thanks so much!
