Paleo Chocolate Avocado Frosting
Easy Recipe
Prep Time
15 minutes
2 cups

This heart-healthy frosting is full of monounsaturated fats from the avocado, and, despite the lack of saturated fat, it's very rich and creamy. Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that has been shown to lower cholesterol. Use this frosting with your favorite cupcake recipe. This recipe makes enough to frost one dozen cupcakes; double the recipe for a layered cake.

3 small avocados
6 tablespoons raw honey (or maple syrup)
6 tablespoons cacao powder
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoons non-alcoholic vanilla
1 teaspoons organic almond flavoring
1 teaspoons lemon juice
