Food For Thought | Raw Vegan Chocolate Frosting or Pudding

I recently bought a Gluten-Free Vanilla Cupcake mix but realized that I didn’t have any frosting. Most frosting’s are full of artificial sugars and just plain old nasty ingredients that I am not too fond of putting in my body. I wanted to see if I could come up with my own frosting recipe using ingredients from my fridge. I decided to throw a few ingredients together and see how it worked out. I love that this frosting is completely raw and contains Avocados which are a very healthy and filling fat. This frosting is delicious. The consistency is very thick and creamy and could definitely be eaten on it’s own as a pudding!

Ingredients:

2 large avocados, pitted and scoop out flesh from peel
6 tbsp raw cacao or cocoa powder
1/3 cup agave syrup (or use pitted dates for a thicker consistency which would be great for pudding)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dash sea salt
Dash cinnamon (optional)

Mix ingredients in a food processor, high speed blender or hand-held blender. Ice cupcakes and/or cake or eat as a pudding! Yum.

I used this recipe to frost my gluten free vanilla cupcakes but am saving the left over mix to eat as a pudding for dessert :)

If you try out this recipe please let me know what you think!
