  1. One thing going for it. It is very nice creamy smooth... but I don't care for the taste. I think if I was to ever try this again I'd use bananas in place of the avocado. Also butter or crisco in place of the coconut oil. A 14 oz. jar cost over 12.00 a 16 - Read more ...
  2. Oh my goodness this is AMAZING! I only had dark cocoa powder and pure vanilla (not extract) so those are the only substitutes, if you could call it that, that I made to this recipe. I don't think I'll EVER make chocolate frosting any other way again. I LOVED THIS! And so did all of - Read more ...

  8. This was interesting. I had seen it under the new recipes today with other healthy recipes and decided to try it. It was like a thick slightly sticky pudding in texture and kind of tasted like bittersweet chocolate. This is definitely not sweet like one would think of frosting made with butter and powdered sugar. - Read more ...
  9. I know nothing of Paleo diet, but for a healthy alternative for myself...amazing. I honestly can tell you, this never made it to the frig to siffen for frosting. The pudding like consistancy I found to be quite pleasing as well as the nip of bitterness from the cocoa...I love it when I can use - Read more ...
