This delicious vegan dairy-free Dark Chocolate Avocado Frosting recipe takes just minutes to prepare and you’d never guess it’s made with avocados!
I have a confession. I failed as a parent for my daughter’s fifteenth birthday. All she really wanted was a cupcake with thick gooey frosting. Sounds easy, right? Well, it’s a little tricky because she’s allergic to wheat and dairy.
Had I been prepared I could have pulled it off. But I was busy. I asked my husband to get store-bought gluten-free cupcakes. I was imagining the cupcakes we’d gotten in the past – the ones with the big piles of frosting. But that was before we knew she couldn’t have dairy. Those cupcakes were no longer an option.
My poor husband did the best he could. He wasn’t aware of the frosting requirement. He picked up gluten-free cupcakes without frosting (a.k.a glorified muffins). I didn’t notice until I pulled them from freezer five minutes before we were going to sing happy birthday. Ugh!
I didn’t think I had the ingredients on hand to quickly make a non-dairy frosting. We went with the naked cupcakes. My daughter wasn’t thrilled…
As my husband’s birthday approached I began a quest for an easy and delicious non-dairy frosting recipe. That’s when I discovered the wonders of dark chocolate avocado frosting.
