THIS WAS SO SO SO GOOD

I wouldn't have believed it...until I tried it. A creamy, smooth delicious chocolate frosting that is actually fairly good for you? What? I wouldn't have believed it either until I made it this weekend, and taste tested it on three kids. This frosting is made from Avocado's, and it's amazing.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 6-8 tablespoons of REAL maple syrup. I used Skinny Sticks Maple Syrup, which I found at Coborn's.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • (optional) 1 Tablespoon sugar or sugar substitute. I used Truvia.

DIRECTIONS

I scraped out two ripe Avocados into my Ninja Food Blender. Along with 8  tablespoons of Skinny Sticks Maple Syrup, the salt, vanilla, cocoa powder and oil. Then I just blended it. I stopped blending and took time to scrape the sides of the blender, and then mixed one more time. What you get is an amazingly creamy texture.
