A delicious non-dairy frosting that whips up in seconds in a blender. Makes a great vegan pudding too!
Prep time: 5m | Total time: 5m
1 medium sized ripe avocado
3 dates, pitted, soaked and drained (reserve soaking liquid)
1 T. date soaking water
2 T. maple syrup
1/8 t. vanilla extract
3 T. raw cacao powder
Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Use a tamper if available, or else scrape down the sides often until frosting is smooth and creamy. (Add a small amount of date soaking water if needed to assist processing.)
Taste and if you’d like a sweeter frosting, you can add a pinch more maple syrup. I recommend refrigerating for 2-3 hours minimum so it gets somewhat firm before being spread or piped onto prepared cake.
