This Lectin-Free Vegan Chocolate Avocado Frosting recipe is a good staple recipe to have on hand and it's made with only 5 clean ingredients and is ready in under 5 minutes.
You can whip it up in a matter of minutes with ingredients you probably already have on hand, and, it's a good recipe to make when you have avocados that need to be used quickly.
I like to use it as a topping on my Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Avocado Oil Cake, but you can use it on top of brownies, cookies, cupcakes or just enjoy it by itself!
