Okay, so despite this recipes mixed reviews from the hubs- I think it’s a texture thing– I am posting because I think it is amazing!! Initially I wanted to try my hand at making a frosting that was not coconut oil based for two reasons: One- the coconut oil frosting tends to melt super fast and I am not a huge fan of the trouble it causes on a warm cupcake! Two- if you can’t tolerate coconut oil you need another option, right?!

Well, making something sweet with an avocado may sound a little crazy but its light flavor combined with its amazingly sturdy texture makes for a great base to build a recipe around! After making my chocolate zucchini muffins, I found that carob powder has a bit of a spice taste to it that mixes very well with sweets {Duh!…says all my vegan friends.} and it hit my taste buds just right which inspired me to make a carob powder, avocado based frosting. Luckily the texture of this is something like a pudding frosting and can be eaten either way! This frosting is very rich and creamy and to me… a TOTAL fix for any chocolate craving! Luckily it is also healthy.. or else I may be in trouble 😉
