Avocado Chocolate Frosting (Paleo and Vegan)

gluten & dairy free chocolate frosting based on avocado. (doesn’t taste like avocado don’t worry)

  • Author: Lea Valle
  • Yield: frosting for 1 cake 1x
  • Category: sauce


  • 1 perfectly ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup good unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Ghirardelli)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate mini chips (optional)


  1. Place all three ingredients in a food processor and mix together, stopping to scrape down the sides once or twice.
  2. Stir in the chocolate chips (if using). The frosting is ready to spread immediately but you can refrigerate if you think it needs to firm up.
  3. Add a little water if it is too thick. (We didn’t need to add water)
