How to Make: Paleo Vegan Chocolate Frosting
All you need to do is add everything to a blender and blitz until smooth and creamy.
In order to get the mashed sweet potato – there are a couple of ways to go about it.
Option 1 (fast way): Poke a sweet potato all over with a fork and then microwave for about 4-5 minutes until soft and tender. Large sweet potatoes will need more time than small potatoes. Once microwaved, let cool for about 10 minutes before handling and the slice the potato down the middle and scoop out the insides. The peel should easily come off at this point. Then just use a fork or potato masher to mash until smooth.
Option 2 (long way): Poke a sweet potato all over with a fork and then bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes at 400°F/205°C. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before handling. Slice down the centre of the potato and scoop out the insides. Use a fork or potato masher and mash until smooth.
Once you’ve got your potatoes all sorted out it’s just a matter of minutes.
You can adjust the sweetness here depending on your personal preference. You can also adjust the consistency of the frosting by adding more or less milk. If you plan on pipping try not to add too much so you don’t thin out the frosting too much.
And that’s it! Four ingredients + one blender = the best ever Paleo Vegan Chocolate Frosting!
