Chocolate Frosting (vegan)

Chocolate Frosting (made with applesauce!)

This easy chocolate frosting recipe is perfect for brownies (like these avocado brownies!), cake, cupcakes, and more.  Because this has an applesauce base, this is a more fruit-forward chocolate frosting!


  • 1/2 C melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 C cacao powder
  • 1/2 C applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 3 Tbsp date syrup*

*can substitute maple syrup or honey


Mix ingredients together in a blender until smooth.  Put in fridge for ~20 minutes to firm up - then it's ready to spread!
