Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Avocado Frosting

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 TBS coconut oil at room temp
  • 2-3 TBS cocoa powder
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons of raw honey or maple syrup or any sweetener of your choice: such as 2-3 pitted dates.)

This recipe was created by Healthy Living Saratoga Guest Mary Colby. She won our March 2015 Demo Center Recipe Contest with this gluten and dairy free frosting and chocolate cake!


Place all frosting ingredients into blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust sweetness to your liking.

Mary’s Suggestion: “Aƒfter frosting the cake, I like to sprinkle with nuts and seeds such as pumpkin (pepitos); flax; hemp; chia; pistachios, or other nuts, etc. Also, you can double the recipe if you want more frosting (who doesn’t!)”
