I tried this today for the first time and it's soooo good (at least I think so)! I found it on originally, but couldn't find it there today so I found a slightly different version here. I changed it a bit.

I think you could easily use this for frosting if you omitted the water at the end.

1/2 c. dates (soaked)*
1/4 c. maple syrup or agave nectar (or maple syrup/honey)
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 c. mashed avocado
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. water

  • Place first 3 ingredients in food processor and blend.
  • Add avocado and cocoa powder and process until smooth.
  • Add the water and process briefly.
  • Chill.

*I didn't know what soaking dates involved, so I just put them in water and let them soak for about 15-20 minutes. Seemed to work for me!
