Tips and Tricks to making The Best Healthy Vegan Chocolate Frosting

  • I have found that baking the sweet potatoes whole produce the best consistency in terms of smooth and richness. If cooking in the microwave, we sure to “steam” it by wrapping it with a wet paper towel or doing it in a steamer glass to keep moisture to prevent it from drying out.

  • To make your own DIY coconut sugar powdered sugar, blend 1 c of coconut sugar + 1 tbsp of corn starch in a high-speed blender until powdery.

  1. Thank you for this great idea. Could you recommend a substitute for the almond butter if someone is allergic to almond?

    1. Hi Vera,

      You can really use any nut butter! I would probably go for sun butter or cashew butter. I hope that helps 🙂

  2. This is so unusual. I’ve never seen a recipe for frosting using sweet potato as a base ingredient. Very clever. I’m definitely going to give it a try.
